Types of Resignation
At one point in our lives, we must resign from one activity or another.
It can be from our workplaces, our Church positions, from politics, from a company or any other activity. The resignation takes place daily and especially in the office set up.
Resigning from our work or business 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 its enormous effects on 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 have not. It always builds up and forces the employee to resign after some time. 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 not taken care of directly affect them. In some scenarios, the laid down procedures could be so rigid that it does not allow the employee to explore their talents. Also, the structures laid down could be so dysfunctional. It could also be that the Employer is not fulfilling the obligations that they had promised. Threats from the topmost leadership also lead to this type of resignation.
II. Forceful Resignation
Another type of resignation is a forceful one. It always leaves a big gap for both the Employer and employee. It happens abruptly without any form of prior notice hence making the affected party suffer. A clear illustration is when an employee decides to resign without issuing any notification. 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 problem. 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
Moreover, there is an inclusive resignation. This resignation is always so formal and professionally applied, and all parties are aware of the intention of one party to resign. It could be that the tenure of employment has come to an end. Also, when an employee receives a promotion, this type of resignation takes place. Therefore he/she resigns from the role formerly held to another one; give advance notice. The employee could be leaving for further studies or to engage in other jobs.
From the above illustrations, designing the resignation matters most. Employees slam doors after 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. Formal resignation makes the Employer feel valued and esteemed and also creates a room for future interactions afterward. Also, the Employer should make sure that the working environment is so healthy that few resignations will take place.
