Everyone is fighting a war against attrition. While some strive to lure new employees into their organization, the other tries to convince their “high risk” employees against a possible resignation. At times, the employees are miraculously persuaded to take back their resignation. Recently, a manager and a manger to manager were discussing about an “high risk” candidate.
Manager To Manager(MTM): So, did he put his papers?
Manager(M): Nope. Looks like there is one more round for him.
MTM: Really? Which one?
M: The “HR” round wherein the actual offering letter is handed over if he is selected.
MTM: Oh! *After a pause* Don’t let him go!
M: *gufffaw* But, they are good pay masters
MTM: Don’t let him go!
M: *puzzled* How? What do I have to offer him?
MTM: *irritated* You moron! Wake him early in the morning. Ask him to report before office hours. Make him stay till late in the night. Don’t let him go to meet the HR!
M: *wide eyed at the MTM’s brilliant and simple solution*
