Work Is Impersonal

Does the Allstate Insurance Co. really think that an online resignation process is a good idea?

I know resigning can be a challenging conversation, but quitting online with a couple of keystrokes seems to devalue the employee by making the process too easy — and to make the entire exchange overly impersonal.

If and when I next quit a job, I’m going to do so personally — face to face with my boss.
