Wish your colleague well
The main objective of your newspaper is to show your appreciation and say thank you. So dedication enough time and space to do just that! Ask your colleagues to add a short message, poem or personal well-wishes to the newspaper. Remember: teamwork makes the dream work!
Contemplate what’s next
So your colleague is retiring soon… But what are they going to do with their newfound freedom? Make a list of all the activities your soon-to-be-retired colleague will now have time for. From learning a new language to spending more time with your grandchildren, remind your colleague that this is the start of a new chapter!
Include team photos
Add lots of fun and creative photos of the whole team! Why not mask your faces with a cutout portrait of your colleague, for instance? It’s guaranteed to be a lot of fun!
Think outside of the box
There are lots of fun and creative ideas to surprise you colleague with your newspaper. Why not create a fake job vacancy playfully listing the skills required to fill your colleague’s shoes. For instance: “Must be able to make a good cup of coffee, have a great sense of humour and tell fascinating stories about your childhood. Framed pictures of your grandchildren are a plus, but not required.”
Add a moving conclusion
Make sure to end your newspaper with a strong and moving message letting your colleague know just how much they’ll be missed. Sign off with everyone’s name and give a special shout-out to those that helped make this retirement newspaper.
