Painful Pink Slips

These days it may seem to be routine.

However, the most difficult job in the corporate life is to be entrusted by the management to tell someone to leave. It’s a different matter when someone leaves on ones own, whether out of frustration or in search of greener pastures. Then the decision is of the person who decides to leave. But when one is told to leave, that is painful.

And, when you are person handing over the pink slip to a colleague, it hurts. Good business sense may be behind such decisions but it leaves the one doing the job, emotionally drained.

And I will spend the rest of today in numbed silence.

My heartfelt sympathies!!! It is indeed 'the worst of times' and maybe the worst of jobs, too, when one has to be a part of another's unhappiness, however unwittingly.

Sometimes we are compelled to certain things. But we may minimise it. Keep his/her contact number with you. Whenever you find some oppurtunities then leave a message for him/her.
