What is an offboarding checklist?


Offboarding checklists for employees are used by Human Resources (HR) to support employees who are leaving the company either through termination, resignation or retirement. The lack of an offboarding process for employees can expose companies to legal, security and reputational risks.



Why offboarding makes sense: 3 aspects


The use of checklists for offboarding helps HR departments and teams to take the following steps


  • Maintain a positive reputation - It is important to strive to treat all departing employees with respect, because negative evaluations of working conditions are particularly damaging to a company's reputation. Therefore, a well-organized exit interview with a checklist should give the affected employee the feeling that he/she is appreciated as a person. Employee feedback during the interview is also very helpful to make some optimizations in the company.

  • Avoid legal risks - Without a comprehensive documentation of the offboarding, possible legal disputes can arise. A structured offboarding process with the help of checklists helps your HR teams to follow the correct legal steps when employees leave the company.

  • IT-risks overview - Company equipment should be delivered on time during offboarding to avoid any company losses and data breaches or the like. With a checklist the handover of the devices can be easily logged and overviewed.
