Speech on retirement of boss (Retirement Speech for Boss)
Speech – 1
Dear colleagues and respected senior colleagues!
This is a very emotional moment as we have gathered here today to bid farewell to our esteemed boss Mr. A who is retiring after completing his services. You have worked with utmost dedication and perseverance for the company for 30 years. He started his career as an executive but due to his diligent performance and strategic thinking ability, he was promoted to the position of manager within just 5 years. Since then, you have not looked back and looked back and it was only on the strength of your hard work that you could reach the place where you are standing today.
You have always inspired all of us as service delivery leaders. You have been the role model for many people and your presence has always been extremely encouraging for all of us. I got a chance to work with you only 5 years ago and I confess that I have not seen a better person than you till date. Whenever I asked you about the key to success, all you said was “work diligently and honestly”. You have not only guided me so far in my professional journey but also played a role as a guardian in my personal affairs. I always find myself very comfortable in your presence and feel honored to work with a boss like you.
Despite being in such a high position, you have always come on time from work and never let the customers feel any kind of trouble. I have not seen you struggling till the last moment because your time management has always been very good. You are a great person as well as a great leader.
Today is your last working day and tomorrow will start the second innings of your life. You have an ocean of knowledge, skills and experience, and in view of this fact, last week, you got an offer of a job as a consultant from a private firm. When you were asked whether you would like to associate yourself with the new company and be financially secure, you replied that your second shift would be entirely devoted to their family and charity work. You also said that they have taken a lot from the society and now it is their turn to give back to the society.
Though your presence will be missed a lot from yesterday but you have fulfilled your last duty by assigning proper workload to your colleague and relevant training. You have also shared your personal contact number and advised that if we get stuck somewhere, we can also expect guidance from you. This work can only be expected from a great personality like Mr. A.
Today we have all gathered to attend the farewell party and every person associated with Mr. A is required to speak a few lines about him. Most of the time, giving farewell speech seems a formality but in the case of Mr. A we are all very excited to share our own thoughts on this day.
Now I stop myself here and ask Mr. X to speak a few lines.
Sir, we all pray to God for your future.

Dear colleagues and respected senior colleagues!
First of all I would like to welcome everyone on this special day which will bring a kind of bitter and sweet experience for all of us. It will not be easy for us to say goodbye to our esteemed boss Mr. X, who has worked continuously in our company for 20 years and has contributed significantly to its growth and expansion. I do not want to miss this chance to say a few words in honor of my boss. Ever since you joined our company, you are recognized for your strong attitude and hard work for your job. Your attitude towards work is truly inspiring to others which encourages working hard and setting new standards of achievements.
Despite being in the position of senior operational manager, your behavior towards others is generous and considerate. After being subjected to your expert supervision, I was able to understand my work better and also learn to bear the additional responsibilities. As everyone knows you are known for your comical nature, good management skills and credibility in the company. The people working under Mr. X and myself are very impressed with his work attitude and managerial qualities.
Although you are taking voluntary retirement from this post, but we know that there are better opportunities waiting outside for you. I am sure that we all know that Mr. X will rise to new heights of success in pursuing his current achievements and in the next phase of his life. It is needless to say that his absence in our company will be consumed a lot but we all will try to work with our hard work and perseverance.
Though you are going today but the kind of work culture and attitude you have not only created in your team members but the people of the entire organization will follow that culture. In fact, I would like to express my gratitude to you for sharing your valuable thoughts on behalf of our organization which can help us to take the organization to new heights. As, in this room where we have gathered, I see many talented and competitive people who are directly or in some way connected with Mr. X and there is no doubt that they are all excited even more now. Will carry out their responsibilities with
Finally, I would like to convey my best wishes for the next phase of your life. No matter where you are going, but we will always pray for your bright future and keep encouraging you. I will always be grateful to you for giving me the opportunity to share your valuable experiences and to be a part of your nationally and internationally acclaimed company, which has left an indelible mark on my mind. Even though you are going, but we all will be eager to keep you informed of everything related to you.
At this point I would like to end my speech and invite Mr. X to come on stage himself and ask him to say a few words before saying his last goodbye.

Hello to everyone! Thank you to all of you for being part of the retirement party of our departmental head Mr. —-. Yes friends, the time has come to say goodbye to them and now we have to wish them well for their future life.
As you all know that today we are here to bid farewell to our boss. You all know our boss is retiring. I know we are full of mixed emotions but for the next half hour I would like to request all of you to forget every thought that comes to your mind and about the moments and relationship we had with our boss, Mr. —- I will ask you to think
On the other hand, Respected Sir, on behalf of everyone present here, I would like to tell you that we are very sad that you are going to leave us while showing your retirement papers, but let’s be honest. So we are all happy for you too because now it will start a new lesson in your life.
You will not believe that when we came to know about your retirement, our heartbeat increased. Trust me it really happened.
Your retirement is the only thing that will make us feel your physical absence in this campus but we would like to make sure that we stay connected with you. We will also ensure that your retirement does not become a barrier between us.
Ok, let’s remember the days of training when we were all asked to write about each other’s weaknesses and sir it was you who had to write about me. Do you remember what you wrote? Friends, he has written that my ‘boss’ means that he himself is my weakness. Isn’t it fun … Sir, you have given me many such memorable moments. We owe you this successful business life.
You have played a very important role in our life. You have supported us, you have advised us and shown us the right path to move forward. Your absence will be felt every moment. We all feel honored to join you, no matter what your tenure is but it has been our privilege to get your guidance for our future.
You have always been enthusiastic and energetic about everything that came to your side. You yourself are an example of excellence and have created the same excellence in us. We all will surely miss you. Your presence helped us achieve our goal and we completed every task as if it were a child’s play. There is neither anyone nor anyone else who can mitigate your deficiency. You will really miss us a lot.
We all wish that you will get all kinds of happiness, success, wealth in future and also be blessed with health. Thanks sir Although talking about expressing your gratitude to us, it seems inadequate to thank you. May God make your retirement life even more enjoyable and joyful! Please stay connected with us, sir!
We all love you very much and will miss you like this.
Thank you very much for being our companion in this journey.
Sir please come on stage and share your experiences with us.

Good morning friends! Today is the day for which we have been waiting for the last one month.
Can’t we all answer why retiring is important?
Respected Sir, we are all here to wish you all the best for the coming days. You are not going to take the name of this pain. Sir, we want to tell you that retirement is an idea to show you how to live life. It is time for you to put your friends and family before your work. We wish you a happy and satisfied retired life.
Sir, you have been our friend, boss, mentor, guardian and everything that we want to see you as. You have often reprimanded us but on the other hand you have also pampered us. You are the one who has laid the foundation of our life. A person like you is the best example, below whom people would like to make a career. We can never forget those cheerful moments spent together. Meetings that turned into informal sessions after 10 minutes of drinking a cup of tea.
We are more concerned with friends than colleagues. Your inspirational thoughts have inspired us a lot and I am sure that we have inherited your values which we will never forget over time. You have given us the opportunity to work in a happy environment and have given a motivated team headed by you. You have been a good boss because you have given us direction and inspiration more than instructing.
I know that we have offended you many times but these moments have created so many memories that it is important to discuss. We will remember all the lessons you have taught. You have been a person of such a strong personality that you have taught us many things even through your mistakes. You are very excited to learn new things and have encouraged us to learn them as well. Your guidance has made us better human beings.
I hope that this retirement will give you a chance to live your life in perfect harmony with nature and fulfill all your unfulfilled desires. I am right sir, your retirement is nothing short of a spectacular achievement. Not every person can receive such royal, dignified, honorable and auspicious wishes of the entire office and bid farewell. Congratulations to you very much sir.
Sir, our feelings for you cannot be summed up in words. It would be better if you come on stage and share your feelings. We know that it will not be possible for you to elaborate on your long journey, but please do it for us once. Dear friends, Now I would like to welcome the esteemed personality of this evening on the platform of our company.
Sir, now this stage is yours. Before you say anything I would like to summarize my point in a line “We all love you very much and we will surely miss you after you leave”. Thank you very much to all of you.
