There are many reasons one chooses to change jobs. Making the decision to leave and considering the unknown of a new career path can be daunting. Changing jobs can also be exciting and give you a fresh outlook on your career. Before you start an exciting new role, you have to end your relationship with your current company. It can be easy to part ways when you are leaving a job you don’t like, but what if you are leaving a great culture?
I recently received one of the best resignation letters I’ve seen in my professional life. While I hated the circumstances surrounding the letter – losing a valued employee – I appreciated the remarkable sincerity in which it was written. It was a great example of a best practice when exiting PFSbrands or any other company that has an envious culture. No doubt there will be a smooth transition for this exit and this employee will be highly thought of for years to come. When exiting a company you care about it’s hard to take the step to leave, but easy to show class and grace through the transition.
