How to write a “cancel my resignation” letter.

When writing a cancel my resignation letter, these are some of the things that you need to keep in mind.

  • The first step is to inform your employer to disregard your resignation. Apologize for any inconvenience caused.
  • The next step is to tell your boss why you decided to continue working for the company. Ensure you have a good reason why you want to keep your job. It is up to your employer to decide whether they want to keep you in the company or let you go.
  • Before drafting the letter, have a one-on-one meeting with your boss as it will be easier to explain the situation to them. It would be best to send the letter to your manager and human resource to keep a record of your retraction.

Sub: Apology Letter for Resignation

Dear Sir,

I am writing to you because I would like to formally apologize to you for my resignation letter. Last month (date) I submitted my resignation letter because I wanted to leave the job. However, after a month off work, I have come to realize that I don’t want to leave work because I forgot how much I enjoy the work. (show actual problem and situation). I forgot the reason why I was doing this and I lost my passion and my drive to continue. Over the last month, I have had a lot of time to myself and I have been doing some activities that have reminded me of why I was doing this in the first place and I feel that I have that drive and my passion back again.

If it is possible I would like to take that away and forget about it. I would like to continue to work here with all of my friends and workmates. I hope that you will give me a second chance and I look forward to hearing back from you.

Kind regards,
