Ah, leaving cards. Carole from accounts is retiring, Daniel from engineering has been recruited for bigger and better things and Tom… well… that’s an awkward one.
Since The Great Resignation, you’ve probably noticed more work leaving cards landing on your desk than usual. According to one recent study, 20% of the workforce are due to quit in the next year. So now is probably a good time to harness your leaving card writing skills.
