Dear Mr. Lee:

I am writing to formally notify you of my resignation from my position at PQR. I was recently offered a new opportunity with a company headquartered very close to my home and have decided to take their offer.

Currently, I spend several hours a day commuting and this new opportunity will allow me more time with my family outside of work. My last day of employment with PQR will be May 31st. 

My years at PQR have been some of the best of my life. I will miss my job and the incredible people I have had the pleasure of working with throughout the years.

I cannot thank you enough for all of the opportunities and experiences you have provided me during my time with the company.

I appreciate your support and understanding, and I wish you all the very best. Please let me know if I can be of any assistance during the last few weeks of my time here.

Sincerely,

How to write a resignation letter due to travelling issues.

Leaving or resigning from one’s job due to issues related to travelling and commute is fairly common and one of the ways you can be cordial and professional during this resignation process so that it is ensured that you leave on good terms is through a professional letter of resignation. 

A letter of resignation is a formal letter that documents and informs your employer about your decision to resign and no longer work for them, and it is a final effort to express your decision to leave your job.  

Alyson Doyle, an author at the Balance Career  notes that,

“…You should always try to leave a job on the best possible terms, regardless of the circumstances surrounding your departure, and expressing yourself sincerely will leave your manager with a positive final impression.”

Adding an explanation as to why you are resigning is not required for most companies, however if you wish to add the reason to clear the air and be open as to how the commute and travel is impacting you. 

It is very important that you express your gratitude for the opportunity and learnings that you have gained during your time there. You can also add your positive experiences to make it more personal.

It is advised that you hand in your letters at least two weeks before the date of departure or the date you wish to stop coming to work as it gives your employers enough time to look for a replacement and also allows for transitions to take place. 

Let us look at a few things that are crucial aspects of writing a resignation letter:

Sender and Receivers details

The first thing that you include in your letter are the details of the receiver; that is, the name and position of your HR manager followed by the address of your workplace.

Example:

Christine D’souza

Easy Days Nursing Home

44 Madhya Marg

New Delhi, 437097 (indeed)

In some letters, you include the name and address of the sender first followed by that of the name and position of your HR manager followed by the address of your workplace.

Example:

Susan Holmes

Kitchen Staff

987 Crazy Legs Avenue, Apt. 34 

Los Angeles, CA, 91054

[email protected] 

February 17, 2019

Linda Lester

HR Manager

XYZ Restaurant

90000 Care Road

Los Angeles, CA, 91054 (RequestLetters)

If you are writing your resignation letter via email, you need not write the senders or receiver’s addresses. However, you should make sure that you put your contact details in the mail.

Introduction and notice of resignation

The next element is the body of the letter which begins with your addressing the receiver of the letter and clearing putting across the intent of the letter and your notice of resignation. 

In this part, you can also include the period of your notice that you will be serving as per your employment contract.

Example:

I am writing to inform you of my resignation as Kitchen Helper at Easy Days Restaurant,  effective two weeks from today. My last day of work will be on 30th Oct’ 2021. (indeed)

Reason of resignation

When it comes to disclosing the reason for your departure, there is no need to go into detail. 

However it is it is advisable that you can clear the air with the manager so as to maintain a positive relationship with your employer. You can mention that the distance is too great and that it is costing you your health, time, and resources.

Example:

I was recently offered a new opportunity with a company headquartered very close to my home and have decided to take their offer.

Currently, I spend several hours a day commuting and this new opportunity will allow me more time with my family outside of work. 

A statement of gratitude

Resignation letters are the last professional impression an employee can make on their employers and colleagues, so it is advised that the letter remains neutral and warm while highlighting positive experiences you have had while working for them. 

A warm resignation letter also ensures that you are able to maintain a positive relationship with your former place of work just in case you wish to work with them again. 

Example letter:

Working at Easy Days has been a rewarding experience and I have enjoyed my time working with you. I thank you for the training and opportunity to grow with you in my career. (indeed)

Transition details

To maintain your professional attitude at work, you should include what you will be doing to help ease the transition of roles with your successor during the notice period as well as contact information. 

Example:

If you feel it would be helpful, I would be happy to assist with the hiring and training of my successor over the next two weeks. Please contact me if you have questions. My email address is [email protected] and my cell phone number is 9745474523.(indeed)

Signature

Close the letter using polite words and include your contact details. 

Example:

Respectfully yours,

Ashwin Mehta
