3 Problems You Can Solve with Automated Offboarding
Published: June 28, 2022

In the midst of the Great Resignation, employee offboarding has become a time-consuming process. Although important for understanding employee trends, this process comes with a lot of paperwork each time an employee moves on.

Much like onboarding, copious amounts of time are often spent coordinating with various departments, filing and sending paperwork, and conducting interviews. However, instead of finding talent, you are losing it, which can leave HR professionals feeling even more overwhelmed.

Offboarding remains crucial to the well-being of your company, giving you the chance to find out why employees are leaving. Exit interviews, company equipment returns, and retirement plan transfers are just a few of the processes necessary to help employees part on good terms with your company. But accounting for all of this can be hard when you have a small HR team or are simply overwhelmed by the amount of paperwork coming across your desk each day.

 For the paper-based pieces of this process, automation can be a great way to save on costs and speed up the process. 3 of the most enduring problems that automated offboarding can help with include:

  1. Overwhelming Paperwork
  2. Creating Solid Processes for Varying, Different Tasks
  3. Meeting Compliance Demands

With automated offboarding, you no longer have to spend time hunting down the right documents or trying to figure out who needs copies of what; simply enter this info once and the rest is automated. Staying in compliance can also be a hassle for HR professionals. And automating offboarding using a secure platform that meets all industry-leading compliance standards simplifies your job even further.

In this new post for SHRM NYC, Steve Wilson, President of OnTask, speaks about his experience working with Human Resource departments across industries, the recurring problems they face with offboarding, and how he has seen automation transform the process for those struggling to keep up.
