Avoid Any Form of Negativity
It can take years to build strong relationships and networks but it can take minutes to destroy them. It’s best to avoid negativity to circumvent any potential misunderstandings or conflict that could damage your reputation or standing during your resignation. For example, whilst you may have constructive criticism that could help develop the team, don’t mention anything that could berate a colleague or Manager. If you have any feedback or recommendations for improvement, you should avoid mentioning them in your resignation letter, as this can wait until your formal exit interview.
Print Off Your Resignation Letter & Hand it to Your Manager
To avoid any early complications, print out your resignation letter and hand it directly to your Manager. It’s also a great idea to follow this up with an email attachment so that it can be recorded by any other relevant department, such as Human Resources.
Say Your Goodbyes
After going through every step of your resignation, the last thing you want to do is burn your bridges on the final day. Whether you know your colleagues well or not, it’s always a good idea to say goodbye to everyone and keep in touch with as many people as you can. You’ll never know when your paths may cross again!
