You remain in touch with your friends from a company (can we say a friend from a company?) when it has been a few or moths since you left that company (this sentence doesn't seem correct). As the time passes away your frequency of having a word over the phone with them decreases. Slowly you stop talking to each other.


Can we say "Initially right after leaving a company you remain in touch with the people you had good relations with while working there"?

When you first leave a company, you tend to stay in touch with the people you liked when you worked there.

I want to say it happens for the first few days or weeks. As the time passes you drift apart and stop talking to them. I don't know what is the correct way to express this idea.

For a while, after I leave a company, I stay in touch with the people I got on with. After a few weeks, though, contact becomes less frequent and eventually drops off completely.

I've written another suggestion above. I have changed "you" to "I" because you can't make sweeping generalisations about how other people behave when they leave a company. I have written it so that it's clear the speaker/writer is talking only about their own habits.
