I have a friend who just gave two weeks notice. Big deal, right? Well, her employer is fighting. Hard.
But here’s the thing.
She’s so far past gone.
If someone gives two weeks notice – they’re done.
Don’t offer them another job. Don’t offer them more money.
Don’t give them anything except for a handshake and a pat on the back.
People don’t give notice lightly. They give notice because they’re past done.
People like stability. They like knowing how they’re going to eat and what they do every day because this is a world where we all can appreciate a little monotony. We appreciate routine.
If they quit, they’re done. You’re trying to lure a dead fish.
Rant, complete. Thanks for listening.
