We recently had an employee leave our employment due to retirement. There was regret on the part of both parties. Why was there regret?

The employee had been with us for an extended period of time. So at this junction of time, they were considered more than an employee, they were a “friend”.

The “friend” had been a credit not only to us but to them-self. They had always worked hard and been very dedicated. If given a project, they would take charge of it. They would consider possible changes and or improvements. They were not reluctant to share these thoughts. So many times, employees will not share information.

This “friend” was a person of solid character. This character manifested itself due in part to their lineage which was built on a strong committed family with great integrity and morals beyond reproach. This character was then imparted to everyone in the Company which made the Company stronger.

They are entering retirement because they wish to spend more time with their children and grandchildren. They certainly cannot be faulted for this, however there will be regret for us and them

For them, the regret of leaving a satisfying career and for us the regret in loosing a valuable “friend”.
