When the world is trodden with the onslaught of the COVID-19 pandemic and economies are banking on governments to doll out economic relief packages, it’s but natural that companies are suffering. The burden of joblessness on governments is increasing each passing day as organizations grapple to remain sustainable in these challenging times.
While many employees are being laid off there are a select few who are being presented bait by rival companies who are on the hunt to source good talent. This leaves the employee with a daunting task of saying goodbye to an organization or boss that has tutored them and made him/her the person they are today.
Nihal Thakur, from Mumbai working with an IT company for 8 years faced this challenge. How did he bid farewell to the boss who has treated him like his own for all these years? He came up with the most unique resignation idea that one could think of..! What did he do?
He requested his bosses’ favorite TV celebrity to do it for him. Yes, that’s right; he booked a personalized video message from the celebrity and politely asked for relieving from his services citing better prospects.
The celeb sent a video saying ‘Mr. Agrawal, Nihal admires you for what all he has achieved with the company thus far and you have been instrumental in helping him garner the skills he possesses today. He will forever be indebted to you for these amazing 8 years with the company which wouldn’t have been possible without your tutelage. For his betterment, he found an opportunity elsewhere and would appreciate it if you respect his decision to move on and take up new challenges. He will be one of your own as skills that you taught him will be with him in whatever he pursues now on. I think you should allow him this chance..’ and so on.
Millennials are always on the hunt for innovative ways to surprise their superiors and what better way than this. Nihal simply went on to www.tring.co.in and selected the favorite celeb of the boss to help him do this from a range of over 1200+ celebrities. This not only got him a smooth exit but his unique resignation is ingrained in the organization archives forever.
