How To Resign

When you’re ready to move on to another company, it’s important to make your resignation from your current employer as positive as possible. 

When resigning, remember to:

  • Follow proper resignation protocol by writing a short and direct resignation letter

  • Deliver your resignation letter to your manager in person; ease your nerves by practising what you’re going to say in advance, including how you’ll react to a counter-offer

  • Be positive about your experiences with your employer. Don’t burn your bridges during an exit interview

  • Get all your questions answered before you leave – that might be about benefits, unused annual leave and other compensation you’re expecting.

Resigning isn’t about airing your grievances. It’s about moving onwards and upwards to something new in a positive way.
