Some organizations do not care about their employees’ personal lives and expect their employees to be available for them whenever they want.
Vacation time is a valuable resource for employees, allowing them to take a break from work and recharge their batteries. However, sometimes employees may not be able to take the time off they need due to company demands. One such situation recently arose when a company denied an employee’s vacation request. The employee prioritizes his family over his job and saves his vacations so that he can take a week off between Christmas Eve and New Year. He asked his manager to give him the details about the project he had to work on but the manager gave him the details after two weeks when OP had to take the vacation. OP asked his manager about the vacation and he denied his request.
OP knew what he should do at the moment. He resigned immediately and this was the moment when the manager regretted his decision. Scroll down for the complete story.
OP has always remained positive at work and received 3% raises year after year. He missed important events of his life due to his job.
After OP’s boss called him during his father’s funeral to troubleshoot an issue, OP made a pledge to put his family first.
OP saves his vacations to take a week off between Christmas and New Years to spend with his kids.
OP has been asking his project manager and manager about the ABC company’s information so he can work on it and can complete the project prior to Christmas Eve.
OP’s manager called him after two weeks and told him about the ABC company’s information. OP told him to talk to someone else about the project.
OP asked his manager about his vacation time but he refused to give him the vacations.
OP drafted his resignation letter after the call and set it on Monday.
Nobody except OP knew how to program that system. Other clients will be expecting their annual reports in January.
They had six projects in progress and now all were dead in the water.
OP’s manager texted him after he resigned:
OP didn’t answer the calls and the texts his manager sent him.
OP asked for $80/hour, immediate sign on bonus and 6 weeks PTO.
“I resigned, I didn’t die.”
After OP resigned, the company soon realized that they were unable to cope without him. They were unable to meet deadlines and deliverables, leading to a loss of clients and revenue. As a result, the company decided to reach out to OP and plead with him to return. They kept calling and texting him. OP made an offer but the company didn’t accept. Well, he got what he deserved. He ended up doubling his salary.
companies must recognize the value of their employees and ensure that they are treated fairly and respectfully. Employees who feel valued and respected are more likely to stay with the company and contribute positively to its growth and success.
The manager wanted OP to give them a two week notice:
OP gave his manager another offer but he laughed at it and told him that he was being greedy.
The manager was begging OP to come back and save their paychecks:
OP got a call from the client’s business manager and he told her everything.
The business manager told OP a different story. OP told her that he has no interest in returning back.
The business manager asked OP what terms would he come back to his former company.
The business manager called OP back on a conference call:
The business manager came with a better offer:
OP agreed to her terms and told her to put the terms in writing:
The client is giving OP a contract because his former company failed to execute the project by the deadline:
The reason is very obvious:
Start treating your employees like people:
It is the company’s fault:
