Make a resignation formal with a letter

I quit! Also, walking out of the office is long gone. We come across this regularly in recruitment. People get jumpy very easily because employee thinks the “grass is always greener on the other side.”

Traditional resignation letters are a thing of the past. These days, it is more common to send an email calling for a meeting, whereby you announce your resignation. However, it is still good practice to write a formal letter of resignation, and some employers will still require one for their records. Keep this letter short and to the point.

Make sure to follow proper business layout on your resignation letter. Include a header with the employer’s name and address, the date, and your name and address.

You need to proofread the Resignation letter before sending it thoroughly. However, if you still lack inspiration. Written example template below can be a great way to get the ball rolling.

    • Reasons for leaving.
    • Adapt it to your contract.
    • Keep a professional tone.
    • Keep it brief and to the point.
    • Date you plan to leave the company.
    • If possible, offer the employer assistance as they look for a replacement.
