At one point of our lives we must resign from one activity or another. It can be from our work places, our Church positions, from politics, from a company or any other activity. Resignation takes place daily and especially in the office set up. Resigning from our work or activity that gives us our daily bread outweighs the other forms of resignation. It’s a daunting task that requires utmost integrity, due diligence and accurate calculation. Despite of its enormous effects in our lives some people take it lightly and do it without careful consideration. Due to that fact, we are going to examine some various types of resignation that takes place in an official set up.
I. Frustrated Resignation
Frustrated resignation takes place where the terms that you had expected to take place are not being met. This type of resignation always builds up and forces the employee to resign after some times. The working environment could be so challenging for the employee to fulfill his obligation. It could be maybe the junior staff is not listened to by the management or matters affecting them directly are not taken care of. In some scenario the laid down procedures could be so rigid that it does not allow the employee to explore their talents. In addition, the structures laid down could be so dysfunctional. It could also be that the employer is not fulfilling their obligations that they had promised. Threats from the top most leadership also leads to this type of resignation.
II. Forceful Resignation
Another type of resignation is a forceful one. This type of resignation always leaves a big gap to both the employer and employee. It happens abruptly without any form of prior notice hence making the affected party to suffer. A clear illustration is when an employee decides to resign without issuing any form of notice. The employer may try to prevent the resignation from taking place by not approving it but when it takes place, it can leave damage to the organization because of the vacuum left. On the other hand an employee may receive an abrupt letter forcing him or her to resign and this leaves the employee in a messy situation if the job he was holding was the only source of income. It takes place against the will of either of the party. It could range from performance issues, disciplinary actions, looking for greener pastures, boredom or any other issue. For instance an employee who is not meeting the set targets could be advised by the management to either resign or receive a termination letter.
III. Inclusive Resignation
More over there is an inclusive resignation. This resignation is always so formal and professionally applied and all parties are always aware of the intention of one party to resign. It could be that the tenure of the employment has come to an end. Also this type of resignation takes place when an employee has been promoted therefore he/she resigns from the role formerly held to another one. In this form of resignation, notice is always given in advance. The employee could be resigning may be for further studies or to engage in other jobs.
From the above illustrations what matters most is how the resignation is done. Some employees always bang the door behind after resigning without thanking the employer while the few who are rare always thank the Employer after resigning. Dignified resignation means that even though you have resigned from your work, you have left a positive image behind your back. Dignified resignation makes the employer to feel valued and esteemed and also creates a room for future interactions after the resignation. Also it’s the obligation of the employer to make sure that the working environment is so healthy that few resignations will take place.
