In today’s episode of things that would only happen in an alternate universe, we have a story about resignation that is a lesson for all of us.
So basically, this Twitter user wants the employees to be honest with their bosses. He wants them to be transparent about their new jobs and even discuss the new opportunity with the bosses.
Here have a look at how foolishly he defined it:
Have noticed departing employees tend to sometimes be cagey about their new employer.— Kunal Bahl (@1kunalbahl) August 3, 2022
Given the current employer will eventually know, it’s best to be transparent & build on the trust.
Good employers understand people want to pursue new opportunities & always wish them well.
According to him, after working in the company for so long, a resignation will help us to build trust. Lol. He thinks the ‘good employers’ will understand this and wish us luck.
Obviously, like you and me, no one is buying this thought on Twitter. People are rejecting the idea right away by presenting reality to this person.
Indian employers are some of the most vindictive and close minded when it comes to giving employees a trouble free departure. They take the separation almost like a personal insult. Never disclose the destination unless it’s for higher studies or a government job.— vijushah@puncturewala (@vijushah9407gm1) August 3, 2022
I didnt even tell people in the startup circle where everyone knows everyone. dont listen to this guy. https://t.co/PF2KIP0dkS— (((Dominique Fisherwoman))) 💙 (@AbbakkaHypatia) August 3, 2022
Lol, never!— Hindoo NRI (@KanchenjungaEve) August 4, 2022
Have heard of instances where employers have had offers rescinded. When ‘eventually’ they will know, you would have started the role. https://t.co/Uzt0iJ1uFa
Good employers don’t have 90 day notice periods either. https://t.co/685881hfgm— the akshay (@theakshay) August 3, 2022
When employers stop making employees sign harsh & restrictive non-compete clauses & 90-day notice periods… employees can start trusting them more. Until then; reject such advice from HR. https://t.co/ah3irlnVJ1— Suryanarayan Ganesh (@gsurya) August 4, 2022
Lulz…old silicon valley practice to "poison the wells". never reveal your future employer to your current employer. https://t.co/E99fRv8sQg— Traveling Salesman (@def__init__e) August 4, 2022
An organization I have worked with went ahead and contacted the future employer and asked them to NOT hire a colleague who has resigned. For no reason!— Shafiullah Anis (@KungfuPasmanda) August 3, 2022
Yes! True story!!
I would suggest that if you are working with an Indian organization, don’t disclose. You never know!!! https://t.co/op6KGCgJ2M

Good employers are rare. Reporting bosses and organization itself makes it very difficult for the employee to quit in peace. Can totally understand.— ? 0 ? ? (@Subhash_ati9) August 3, 2022
Have seen few employers mess with departing employees— Shashwat (@BhattShashwat) August 3, 2022
In a specific instance the current employer called the future employer and ensured that offer letter was rescinded
Understand your advice comes from a good place but has to be applied contextually
Seriously, don’t listen to this person. You will land in trouble!
