HR Tip of the Week: How to fearlessly part ways with your employer!
When we break up with jobs, we aren’t just breaking up with our manager; we’re also breaking up with our co-workers, clients, and HR representatives. So, it’s important to value those relationships and break up softly with them as well. Follow these three best practices to make the break confidently and easily:
•It’s important to have a pre-breakup conversation with your manager. Once you’ve accepted another job offer, tell your manager that you’ve accepted a new job. Don’t just email your resignation letter without warning.
•If you work on a team or interface with stakeholders or clients, have a pre-breakup conversation with them as well. If you were serving them or working with them on projects, you may owe them deliverables.
•Lastly, notify your HR department, which makes your resignation final. HR needs to know what your last day of employment will be so they can process personnel paperwork and conduct an exit interview, if needed.
