A Bittersweet Farewell to a Coworker

Saying goodbye to a favorite coworker can be bittersweet. When Trish moved on to her next adventure, her coworkers were happy for her—but sad to see her go. They created a Kudoboard to send her off with best wishes, and we were so touched by the messages. 

I am so sorry to hear that you are leaving us Trish! It has been an absolute pleasure working with you and although I am sad to see you leave, I wish you all the best with your new role!


You have been just absolutely amazing.  A joy to work with and your positivity and kindness has had a massive impact on those around you.  I will miss working with you and I know you will be amazing in your new role. 


Trish was definitely feeling the love from her coworkers and enjoyed her farewell Kudoboard.

“I love that this has been available for people to use during the pandemic. It’s a brilliant way to send special messages, an AWESOME concept…Sheer genius and as good as getting a card. I’ve found that people write more of a message than they would on a classic card.”

Good luck with your next role, Trish, and thank you for letting us share!
