I recently gave my supervisor at work a resignation letter. He mentioned to me that he would like to give my letter to the Human Resources (H.R.) department, but they like to have the letter state the reason why you are leaving the company.
Of course, the reason I’m leaving is because I found a job I think I would like more (and it pays more), but I’m wondering why would H.R. want me to put that in the letter? I don’t want to be paranoid, but is there some sinister plot behind all this? Also I’m an ornery cuss and I’m not sure I want to add to my letter just to make H.R. happy.
Any comments from the teeming millions?
