When you resign and you happen to be on the bench at that time. After giving two week notice, so you start to tell colleagues that you are leaving and schedule time to catch up with them in groups/ 1:1 (since you have time); or just wait until your last to send out farewell email to inform all the people you’ve interacted with at work?

EM1 is being a little extreme.. have definitely seen people grab a quick catch up coffee to chat before they leave. Would only do it with people you’re close with though

Agreed. That's how I did it. Still keep in touch with them today.

Honestly no-one will care to “connect” with you if you’re proposing to take time out of their working day. You’re leaving, they’re staying, and they’re busy - I wouldn’t add to their pile. Just my view, I left a firm and did an Irish exit, people who cared reached out via phone or LinkedIn and I spoke with them after I left.

If they’re mentors def call them. I had a mentee of mine just leave and she texted to see if we could chat quickly. Appreciated she took the time to let me know personally

I have always appreciated someone reaching out to tell me they are leaving soon, tell me about their plans or just reminisce old times. Obviously depends on how good a relationship you have with them. So don't reach out to every single person, but the ones you have worked closely with at some point - they will definitely appreciate it

If you have close friendships or informal mentors / mentees setting up time should be fine. But I’d suspect it wouldn’t be a super extensive list, just those you were closest with.

Hi guys 👋🏻
So I joined IBM 5 months back, was on bench for this long and got project just a week back.

My PSP and People Manager have been kind of lenient, cooperative and kind to me because I was never told I will be put in PIP, I have to enter project not matching my skillset etc etc.

Is it wise to appreciate both of them via blue points for their support?

I just got a mail saying I have 200 bluepoints to send out appreciations if I feel like.
