Resignation in the context of HR, refers to the voluntary act of an employee choosing to terminate their employment with an organization. It is a formal process where the employee notifies their employer of their intention to leave the job permanently. Resignation can occur for various reasons, such as career advancement, personal reasons, or dissatisfaction with the current job or work environment.
An example of resignation is when an employee submits a formal resignation letter to their supervisor or the HR department, stating their intent to leave the company. The letter typically includes the employee's last working day and may provide a brief reason for their decision. Upon receiving the resignation, the employer may initiate the necessary procedures, such as conducting an exit interview, arranging for knowledge transfer, and making arrangements for the employee's final paycheck and benefits.
