A Comprehensive Guide on What to Write in a Coworker's Farewell Card

‘Goodbye’ came from ‘God bye’, which was the shorter version of ‘God be with you’. Discovering this, the word ‘Goodbye’ seems beautiful now, doesn’t it? This should help you to feel better when you write goodbye in your farewell cards. We hope it does! Nobody likes bidding farewell to their favorite people, but we all know goodbyes are inevitable. 

All of us have been there when it comes to contributing to an office group card; our minds freeze when we have to jot down a thoughtful goodbye note. One in three people, globally, face issues with expressing themselves through words and writing. We are here to assist with the same. 

Whenever there is a farewell or any other occasion at the office, one person gets the mocking responsibility of getting the farewell cards or the respective occasion’s cards signed by the team. It can be a time consuming and tedious process. Everyone requires time to figure out what to write in a farewell card or whatever may be the occasion regarding that. It’s not only this reason that physical cards are not convenient. After the pandemic, many organizations have permanently shifted to a remote working model or a hybrid work model. It has become much easier to send an online group card in today’s times. 

At GreetPool, we bring you group greeting cards that you can send online and together for every occasion. The process is quick, simple, and very affordable. The features of unlimited signers and unlimited pages offer you the opportunity to collaborate with many people. Furthermore, you can personalize the farewell cards or any other group cards as per your desire with our features like attaching photos, GIFs, stickers, emoticons, and fonts.
