    I donít want one of my colleagues to leave the company

    I am working in a private company. One of my colleagues, who is also my best friend, is hell bent on leaving the company as he does not like the work atmosphere here and also has some problem with the manager. But I donít want him to leave as I donít think I would be able to work here without him. What should I do so that he stays here?

    Hello,

    There is nothing you can do my friend. Each individual has their own unique
    chracter that has to be respected by all of us. Your friend don't like to office
    environment and he is not at all comfortable with your boss so it is better for
    him to leave the company and try his luck elsewhere. You have to respect your
    freind's decision. You just can't force him to stay.

    Bye,

    Dear Friend

    You cannot do anything in this situation because if you will prevent him from leaving the company ,he will be definitely not able to work in the company atmosphere and thus his efficiency will be decreased.

    He will always remain in state of tension and frustration that will cause hindrance in work .

    So it would be better if you can join the company in he wants to work if you really wants his companionship.

    Hope the information helps and satisfies you .If you have any other query you can leave it here.

    All the best

    Dear it's great to see your addiction of friendship and this is called real friends that they may not work without each other but you have mentioned that only your friend wants to leave the company because of some problems with your boss and he does not like the working environment at all so I would say that you should not try to stop him because he will not stop after listening to you and you will waste your time if you go to make him understand on this matter that is why you should go to your boss and ask about the reason that why your friend is leaving the job and your boss will tell you internal problem and if you got this then you must go to your friend and try to make him understand about that issue that has been done with the boss and try to make him understand that this happens in professional life and if you will keep your relations flexible with boss as me then you will like the working environment and will be able to provide better performance and you must try to avoid this type of problems and be good with boss because he is the one who provided us the job to survive and how can you think about to leave them on the way that is why we both will have to walk with our boss and pay whatever we have got from them

    If you friend say that I am finally leaving the job and will find other one then make to understand him that this is the time when jobs are not available easily so you will have to go here and there for jobs and if what is your guarantee that you will get a better job that provides working atmosphere adjustable for everyone and how could you get a very good boss who respect you a lot and more than any other employee so this is not easy and a good image may be earned only after working hard for a long time but a good image may be spoiled in seconds that is why you should not leave the job and do not go anywhere else and also think about me because I am here because of you and if you will leave the job on the way then you will not leave the job, you will leave your best friend that is not good for you and for me too so think about my performance here after going and if you leave the job then I would also resign this job and come with you for a new job

    Now your friend may understand the situation that you also can not work without him so he will think to stay for current job and will work with you and if could not understand then you should say that find one more job for me too otherwise, I would not let you go anywhere

    All the best

    Dear,
    Your prejudice that you can't do any thing without him is not correct. You should have faith in your capabilities, no one remains dependent on any one.
    you should try to handle your own work , be independent in this world.

    And to say about your friend you should allow him to switch the company, otherwise he will not be able to work in this uncomfortable atmosphere.

    Or best is that you both should change your job.

    Never put leg inside someone else hole because your friend have taken the decision and you want to stop him if he stops by your sayings then after some days again he clash with the boss and again want to leave the job, think about him he may have already have found any other job right niw so that he must be leaving so never force him to stay on the company as if he loose the opportunity then he will blame you in future that due to you he has lost the best opportunity so respect his decision and be his good friend.

    If your friend leaves the current organization and joins some other organizations your friendship does not end.
    You can always talk and meet after office hours
    Everyone has the right to choose their own career path and your friend also can do this
    If he is not liking the work atmosphere good than he should leave and join some other organization where he likes working

    Dear friend,

    I think You cannot do anything in this situation because if you will prevent him from leaving the company.
    He will be definitely not able to work in the company atmosphere and thus his efficiency will be decreased.
    He will always remain in state of tension and frustration that will cause hindrance in work .
    So it would be better if you can join the company in he wants to work if you really wants his companionship.

    Re: I donít want one of my colleagues to leave the company

    i know its very difficult to work with out your best friend i can understand your feelings but you can ask him to stay with you at same company.. But the case is totally different because its really difficult to change mindset of a person when he does not want to work for the company as he has problems with your boss/manager when he is not comfortable with the working conditions at office its not good that you pursue him to stay in the same company itself.. Now this not true friendship you show being a good friend you should always have concern of his well being.. You should always think that he should be comfortable and work with stable mind and he also should be enjoying his work.. Be matured i think your work that you have spoken that you will not be able to work without him?? This is not good as an employees will you work without salary ? Put these questions yourself.. How can you expect to make your friend not to leave when he has problem in the company.. He needs some good atmosphere.. Your friendship should encourage him in moving in good company and good direction .. I know these days its difficult to find true friends but there is also option for you you can slide to other company consult your friend first its also important that whether he wants to you also be with you or not.. i want to say you its better you be far with him because friendship is directly proportional to distance you get separated.. If you two friends are at far places then your bonding with grow much stronger that you stay near its true and universal fact.. all the best my regards to you and your best friend as well
