Just as Important as First Impressions
For an employer, an employee putting in their 2-week notice can stir up emotions not unlike those felt during a break-up with a significant other.
How you handle it (as an employer) is vital.
As a recruiter, I see many resumes where candidates leave a company and end up returning to the company a few months or a few years later… They learned that the grass was not always greener on the other side…
Conversely, many candidates told me they knew from observing past colleagues put their 2-week notice, they’d be treated very coldly and would be shown the door immediately.
Ending the work relationship on a sour note makes it much less likely for the employee to consider working for your company again in the future.
And in the world of talent, burning bridges is never a good idea: that employee could come back to you down the road, or alternatively become an important supplier or vendor whose endorsement you rely upon.
