To Colleagues: I'm Outta Here             unspoken job skill: wording a goodbye email that won't make co-workers cringe

Julie Redfield, talent management expert at PA Consulting Group, provides her views about what employers should do when employees exit companies – and how to make sure their last farewell is appropriate.
