When you last quit your job, who did you inform first at your organisation? The obvious answer should be your supervisor. But, is it anymore? Would you have told your reportees and peers first? Isn’t that the new trend?. We can argue that it may not be the right thing to do. The reporting boss technically should be the first to know on such sensitive matters. The fact is that we have been spending more time with our reportees, peers. We also are socially bonding with many of them. We have even met up with their families, visited their homes and a special relationship would have got built. Would it be really awkward to look into their eye if you tell the boss first or wait for the formal announcement to come? Yes, it also depends on the relationship with your boss. It goes without saying that if that equation is higher that’s where the submission news can start. In the last decade or so whenever my boss used to inform us about our peer’s exits, we used to be shell-shocked. Present day, we either already know about it or the shock is non-existent due to the frequency of exits! I have resigned 4 times before. Thrice it was boss who got to know first & once I had to inform my trusted team before I picked up the phone to call my boss 🙂
