Here is an example retirement speech designed for an employer to make to their employee on retiring from the company.

When (Name) told me he/she was retiring after [XX] years of service to the company, I was sadly moved.

I was here the day [Name] started working for the company and through it all, times of hardship and recession, he/she has always been someone the company and I could rely on.

Now [Name] may not know this but I have his/her first appraisal report in front of me and I would like to read out a few points.

  • [Name] has delusions of adequacy
  • He/she would be out of his depth in a parking lot puddle
  • This person is depriving a village somewhere of an idiot
  • His/her men would follow him/her anywhere, but only out of morbid curiosity.

Now, the above statements are not true. But I have to say that coming to work knowing [Name] would be here with a smile on his/her face no matter what the situation has made many a tough day worthwhile.

[Name] has been an inspiration and a role model to younger employees. If all employees were as hard working and focused then the world would be a better place.

I only hope that who ever we get to replace [Name] in the role is as hardworking and career minded.  His /her replacement has some very large shoes to fill.

So on behalf of the company, and from me personally, I wish [Name] all the best in retirement. We hope he/she has a long and peaceful rest, spends some time with loved ones and does everything he/she wants to do with his time off.

All the best, [Name], and thank you for [XX] years of continuous hard work.
