‘Retirement’ takes place when a worker stops employment completely on reaching the age of superannuation, or due to ill-health or due to personal choice because he/she has enough finances to retire from active full-time work. Sometimes, a person wants to retire and do something on his own as a ‘Free Lancer’. In extreme and unfortunate instances, an employee is ‘asked’ to proceed on retirement by the employer on grounds of inefficiency, moral turpitude or downsizing of staff due to recession.
No matter what the reason/cause of retirement is, it is in good taste to shake-hands with the Employer and bid goodbye to the organization on a pleasant note without rancour or recrimination. The retiree should make it a point to extol the service conditions of the organization and the co-operation and support received from the management and colleagues alike.
It is considered bad form to point out the short-comings of the organization and unpleasant relations with ones colleagues/superiors in a Retirement Letter.
