How should a staff augmentation employee handle a resignation?


Handling Resignation as a Staff Augmentation Employee

When an employee hired through staff augmentation decides to resign, it involves a process as deliberate as when joining the team. Given that these are often specialized roles, one must aim to leave in as smooth a manner as possible to make sure that the services don’t get disrupted. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to handle it:

1. Decide on the timing

Choose when to resign wisely. If possible, ensure it aligns with the conclusion of a major part of the project, to facilitate transition and minimize potential project disruptions.

2. Write a formal resignation letter

Communicate your resignation in writing, addressing it to your immediate supervisor/manager and, if applicable, the HR representative at your staffing firm. The letter should specify your reason for leaving, last working day based on notice period obligation, and a thank you message for the opportunity.

3. Conduct a handover

Prepare a comprehensive handover plan for your replacement. This should include all the tasks you handle, systems used, passwords, and contacts. The goal is to ensure business continuity after your departure.

4. Maintain professionalism

Resigning does not mean you should neglect your duties. Keep up your work ethic till the last day and, where possible, offer to assist in the transition process of your replacement.

5. Exit interview

Be prepared for an exit interview which is a common practice to learn about employee experiences, reasons for departing, and possible improvements.At Synapse Team, we provide a seamless staff augmentation service that seeks to minimize disruptions when such changes occur.
