Research conducted by Harvard Business Review shows that savvy companies prepare for offboarding long before an employee's exit. It also refers to a PeoplePath report from 2019 that shows that:
- A third of corporate alumni maintain connections with previous employers as clients, partners, or vendors.
- 15 percent of new hires come from alumni rehires and referrals
The importance of a good, structured offboarding process is evident, and every serious company should have one.
To be sure that the whole organization is onboard with how you do offboarding, every person affected by your offboarding process needs to understand what's going on and when.
Or even better, every person involved in your offboarding process should be involved in actually mapping out and planning how you should do procurement. What system is involved where? What are the needs at marketing? Sales? Logistics?
To succeed with this involvement, you need a tool that gives you all a common language for visualizing and documenting your offboarding processes.
