I was talking to a friend the other day about our September HR topic, which is all about the correct approach to employee terminations. I knew this person's job history was quite extensive and varied, and I asked if they would summarize it for me. Following is what I heard:
I studied a long time to become a doctor, but I didn’t have any patients. I wanted to be a barber, but I just couldn’t cut it. Next, I found being an electrician interesting, but the work was shocking. Then I worked in the woods as a lumberjack, but I just couldn’t hack it, so they gave me the ax. After that, I tried to be a tailor, but I just wasn’t suited for it. Mainly because it was a sew-sew job. My best job was being a musician, but eventually I found I wasn’t noteworthy. Next, I tried working in a muffler factory but that was exhausting. Then I tried to be a chef - figured it would add a little spice to my life - but I just didn’t have the thyme. I just lost my job as a psychic. Boy, I did not see that coming. Finally, I attempted to be a deli worker, but any way I sliced it, I couldn’t cut the mustard.
Seriously though, termination is no laughing matter and never a pleasant experience - for employer and/or employee. Join us for this month’s free HR webinar to learn practical tips for how to approach a termination decision, conduct the termination meeting, and administer the employee’s departure. We will also be providing additional termination tips and resources throughout September.
Please join us for our complimentary webinar Wednesday, September 25th at 11:00am PDT
