These days loyalty to a company is not as common as it used to be. It is becoming more and more uncommon to find someone who has worked for the same company 30+ years as seen in our parents’ generation. The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) stated in a September 2016 report “the median number of years that wage and salary workers had been with their current employer was 4.2 years in January 2016, down from 4.6 years in January 2014.” With an ever increasing employee change-over rate there is a greater risk that an employee will leave on bad terms.
Given this information, it is becoming evident how important properly formulated exit procedures are so that if an employee does leave, issues can be investigated and addressed in a timely manner. A set of exit procedures may include some combination of the actions in this article here.
