How do you resign for a remote/hybrid job? I currently work from home and got a new job that I’ve accepted. I need to submit my resignation to my boss, but I’m not sure how to go about it. Any advice?

1. Take care of any personally beneficial tasks in case your access is cutoff. (That typically only happens ASAP if you’re leaving for a competitor). Submit your expense reimbursement(s). Remove any personal files from your computer. Save any contact info that you need.
2. Schedule a brief meeting with your manager. Use some vague reason about needing to give a time sensitive update on your projects.
3. Prepare your resignation letter. This should be short and contain only the key details such as your last day. Save it in your drafts.
4. Meet with your manager and break the news. Be concise and gracious even if they’re part of the reason you found another job.
5. Send the resignation email to your manager and copy HR immediately following the video call.
6. Tell your teammates, direct reports, and anyone else you worked closely with individually via direct communication. A former employer of mine would cutoff access if a departing employee messaged a large group, so make a plan for how to communicate your departure.

Best answer here. Most of the time your access shouldn’t be cut off completely, especially if you are leaving on good terms. This gives you some time to wrap up any remaining tasks

Search for examples of resignation letters. Write your own. Schedule meeting with boss and tell them. Then email letter to them after meeting.

If you and your manager do ad hoc meetings, make them feel like it is on the fly by asking if they have a few minutes. Otherwise schedule something. IMO do it on video out of respect. And thank them for the opportunity to work there.

Most HRIS systems already have a quit/resign option baked in. Do that and send a follow up meeting to your direct manager. They will likely get an email as soon as you submit your resignation.

From there they will tell you what to return and how. Mail in the laptop and badge, drop it off at a local branch office, keep the headset etc.

Keep it simple. Tell them you're leaving and the effective date. If you have any regrets, say that you do but don't list them: if not, the departure notice and date are sufficient. Save the whys and wherefores for any exit interview HR offers. Volunteer nothing.

Remember that you are leaving them for a good reason, even if that reason is only better compensation. It's nobody's business but yours.

I’ve never seen any HRIS system with a “quit” button. A zoom meeting followed by an email is pretty standard. You should be prepared for them to possibly counter or attempt to retain you as well.

I resigned from my last role online (Workday has a resignation workflow)

The steps are usually in your contract.

Usually involves a chat with your manager and an email to your HR team really the only requirement will be your email.
I usually write the email with last day states on it and then setup a 30 minute call with my manager. I then explain to them that I am leaving and my reasons and provide the email during that call to them and HR.

Last role I left I was on the fence about and my manager really wanted me to stay he wanted to counter but has their manager chat to me as well because he was hoping they could keep me. Their manager treated like a personal insult and verbally abused me which cemented my decision and I rejected all their counter offers.

Depending on your relationship with your manager may be best to talk to them as a courtesy but be prepared for a counter offer but follow whatever you contract says

I work in a hybrid role and recently gave my 2 week notice.
I made a point to go into the office in person and scheduled an impromptu meeting with manager to give the news in person. I was leaving for a better role - so I was able to be honest and say that. If you’re in the same boat, I think that’s a perfectly acceptable reason to give. Obviously, never say anything negative unless you’re trying to burn bridges.
Also followed up in writing with an e-mail including last day date and CC-Ed HR.

I personally thinks it’s best to do it as close to in person as possible, either actually in person or via a Zoom meeting. Good luck on the conversation and on your next position

Like most tech companies, about a year ago my company started hiring remote employees. we all worked remotely for 24 months.

Now that we are reopening our offices, no one seems to be coming into the office yet. I really do not want to work remotely anymore, and I’m seriously considering changing jobs just to go back to a workplace where people are in person.

Is anybody else in this position? I feel like I am losing my mind working from home for two years with no end in sight.
