A long-standing member of staff has handed in their notice and left your office, what do you do now?
First things first, don’t panic!
It’s important that you handle the aftermath of someone leaving the office in the right way. Whether they left under a cloud or simply to pursue new opportunities, there is bound to be a shift in office morale to a certain degree. In order to ensure that you don’t tip the balance too far and upset those sat at your office tables, it’s important to plan carefully.
Do not pile too much extra work onto existing members of staff in the interim. This is not going to do morale any good whatsoever! Make sure that extra tasks are dealt with in a fair and even way
Carefully assess whether you need to replace this position or whether the office desking system you currently have can handle one less worker. Again, be sure to avoid unfair pressures on your existing employees
Talk to your staff about the possible recruitment process and ask for their opinions; they’re the ones doing the job after all!
Remember, you don’t have to recruit another member of staff in the same way; you could opt for a freelancer or a remote worker. You could have someone working from home who perhaps comes into the office on an occasional basis and sits at a modular office desk.
An employee leaving is difficult, but it’s also a chance to perhaps change things around, after discussion with your current employees.
