What To Do

Once you’ve picked your retirement date, follow these steps for a smooth transition:


Let your manager know

Provide your manager written notice of your resignation at least two weeks before your last day. If you’re a manager or above, you’re expected to give at least four weeks’ notice. Be sure to indicate the reason for your departure and last day of work.

Transition your work

Work with your team members and manager to ensure a smooth transition of your work. Keep in mind that your BSW email and network access will end on your last day of work.

Update your contact information

Be sure to update your contact information in PeoplePlace > About Me so you receive information on benefits continuation opportunities as well as your W-2.

If you have additional questions, submit a ticket to PeoplePlace (log in required). 

Empty out your workspace 

Remove any personal possessions from your workspace. If you have a workspace at home, you will need to return any sensitive information to BSW. Remove any work-related virtual files on your personal computer or other personal devices.

Return company materials

On your last day, return your ID badge and other company-provided materials—such as your keys, cell phone and computer—to your manager.

Complete your exit interview survey

You will be sent an email with an invitation to complete an exit interview survey once your manager has submitted your resignation. Complete this survey ahead of your last day of work.
