Manager Gets 8 Hours Notice To Fire His Entire Staff, What He Does Next Was Unforeseen
This incident happened when the United States federal government was shut down. It was overwhelming for the citizens who worked for the government. They had to face the gritty side for working for the government. This is not the only downside of working as the government servant and it certainly isn't easy to work for the government. It just gets more and more hard as the job positions assigned.
A Reddit user named shortadamlewis had to face a similar situation and he handled it his way. He not only lost his job but had to fire his whole staff, which was awful. But as a manager, he was not ready to let go of his staff so easily, not until he got everyone what they deserved. He then took matters at his own hands and did the best at the situation thrown his way.
This turned out to be the best job quitting story ever!
The manager had been provided only 8-hour notice to lay off his entire staff. He was just a contract project manager and it was only Thursday when the periodic review was held, that the government announced the renovation of contract and the last day, dated Friday, which was the next day.
He ordered Pizza for everyone...
He continued, "I brought everyone into the conference room first thing the next day, let everyone know that we were all out of a job and that today was everyone’s last day. I had everyone email me their resumes, and we went over everyone’s on the conference room projector and updated them over the course of the day. I then printed out “reference” sheets for everyone, and we all spent the remainder of the day writing letters of recommendation for each other. I ordered everyone pizza and bought everyone a round of drinks at the bar next door. Most folks had jobs by the end of the next week.”
The man continued his story, saying that he was assigned the project manager at a failing project and his work was to deliver the custom software for the government. He was paired with the PM who was well experienced in the corporate world while the project manager had traditional schooling and military experience.
He says that he was not the only one who helped this thing happen but the PM they appointed was also appreciable. He says, "Letting people go is never fun. When we can, it never hurts to try and set someone up for success in the future even if they can’t be a success working with you”
