Offboarding describes the steps that are taken when a business and one of its employees are formally separating — this could be as a result of dismissal, resignation, redundancy, or even retirement.
Employee offboarding is usually quite admin-focused, and may includes things like:
- Collecting any company equipment or uniform from the departing employee
- Collecting or deactivating any keys or passes in the employee’s possession
- Deactivating the employee’s company email address or company logins
- Adjusting the work rota to fill any gaps created by the employee’s departure
- Conducting an exit interview together with a member of your HR team
In addition to the offboarding process, employee aftercare focuses more on the interpersonal elements of parting ways with a member of your team, with a view to doing so on the best possible terms.
