In this article, Kevin writes about how employee off-boarding can be a different process when the company’s culture is one that fosters personal growth and shares leadership. Human Resources professionals should rework their thoughts to maximize the well-being of those employed at the company. Instead of treating an off-boarded employee as someone to close a folder on, HR can take a role of helping facilitate finding a more engaging and meaningful transition.
“The fact that a specific job was not an optimal fit for an individual potentially now becomes something to honor and celebrate. ‘Ok, so we’ve found an occupation that does not energize you or leave you with a deep sense of fulfillment. This is progress, not failure. Let’s seize this moment to think about what types of work experiences might captivate you.'” – Kevin Hancock
