Thoughts on Leaving 3

28 Mar

There seem to be two main ways in which organisations treat their “deserters” (i.e. people who choose to leave). The first is by ignoring them, and the second by harrassing them!

One wonders why.

After all, if it seems that unfair to you that the guy chose to leave, you could always tell him to leave immediately, and not serve his notice period. You could always sign fixed term contracts with people. You could always promise life-time employment to people. You could always listen a bit more, care a bit more, think about your people a bit more, talk to them a bit more…while they are there.

Why the whiplash when they decide to leave?

    Maybe coz they realise it’s difficult to get ppl who will tolerate all the little wrong things…that it’s difficult to fool ppl always and where will we get another one like this? but i think that sort of behaviour happens only in places with bad work ethics..i’m sure not every company is like that..

    their unjustified reactions are more out of frustration and helpnessness that they could not make one kneel down before them and also possibly to frighten others from leaving,but they forget that today bright youngsters choose their bosses and organizations and fear and unfairplay are the last things to retain them in the organization.infact they ask themselves that if all this is happening with their colleague, how can it not happen with them,when they decide to leave.good and ethical organizations believe in least pain parting.but for this lot of courage is needed in bosses.
