The third one has left the team & the organization. Sreekumar was the perinial scapegoat of a botched up HR & transition goof up and he paid the price for it. To his credit, he has never let his personal & professional problems affect his work and he has remained dedicated & single-minded in his approach to achieving the targets & beyond.
There has only ever been one incident where I had to admonish him and get really dissappointed with. But that’s ok – there were a 100 things that he did that deserved and got high praise. I’m sure that he’ll do well in his new job.
So that’s 3 down, 2 more to go. I have some hope that I will be able to retain 2 of the remaining guys. I’ve been given a lifeline and I have had the DGM of training speak to them about it. She has asked them to wait for 5 days at the maximum and then see what we can offer them and it is clear that my guys do not want to go. So I have my fingers crossed. Let’s see if it pans out.
