Before an employee leaves your company, it is important to effectively manage the offboarding process. This can have positive, or negative, effects on your Employer Branding. A well-executed offboarding with a thoughtful send-off leaves employees with a positive memory of your company. And these days company reviews on social media and databases like Glassdoor are extremely powerful. Four out of five job seekers use company reviews and ratings to make job decisions. Therefore it is worth putting time (and sometimes money) into giving employees a good farewell.
We have created this Offboarding Checklist to help you manage the process, and ensure all your employment ends on good terms.
Of course offboarding comes in many shapes and sizes – retirement, moving to a competitor, let go due to poor performance, found a new job, etc. This checklist will fit to most situations, but you may choose to add extra points depending on the specific situation.
