In two weeks, I will be leaving my employment, in what I hope to be good terms with management and coworkers. I have given appropriate notice and am trying to ease the transition for everyone involved.
But in professional conversations, I am struggling with word choice.
- "My upcoming termination" sounds a little harsh.
- "The transition period" seems overly vague.
- "When I leave," "After I'm gone," or "My departure" would work, but I'm not actually going anywhere. Just no longer employed with this particular company.
What is the right way to treat this subject without making it sound like a death in the family?
Notes added for clarification:
- I am seeking for terminology rather than how to handle the departure in general
- Perhaps one of the reasons I hesitate to say "leave" "go" or "depart" is because I live very close to my current workplace. But, as BSMP pointed out, I will not actually be entering that exact building/office anymore, so they are in fact valid choices.
