Off-boarding is the formal process of managing the end of an employee's lifecycle and completing the employee's exit formalities. Employee departures, whether voluntary or involuntary, are an inevitable part of conducting business. Don't let the off-boarding process fly under the radar at the end of someone's employment. It can be just as important as on-boarding at the beginning of a career with you. If you say "goodbye" in the right way, it can have a major impact on your organization's future.
Most managers have to handle an employee termination at some point in their careers. Even the most seasoned managers often have feelings of dread and fear. Others are disappointed when top performing employees give a two-week notice before quitting, or are heartbroken when they have no choice but to downsize. Regardless of why employees are leaving, all organizations lose employees and the off-boarding process needs to be done as quickly and efficiently as possible.
Off-boarding prepares employees for their departure by participating in exit interviews, deleting login credentials, returning company property, ensuring that employees receive the appropriate extended benefits, etc. Off-boarding can be an important part of making sure ex-employees feel positively about their experience with you, regardless of the circumstances of their departure. A good off-boarding program will help you tie up all the loose ends of exit formalities. Exit interviews will help you to get a more in-depth understanding for why employees are leaving. Knowing why they are leaving will help you keep the rest.
This session by our expert speaker, Carol Hacker, will help you turn potentially unpleasant departures into a positive off-boarding and exit interview experience and you will learn how to turn the off-boarding process into a motivational tool. It will be loaded with practical ideas that you can apply right now!
