Focus on Safer Terminations
Effective Terminations Turn Ex-Employees into Valuable Alumni
An employment separation done with dignity not only reduces the risk of such harm, but it also brings the benefits of a better future relationship with the organization. From reassuring colleagues to how we treat people (no matter how they leave) to even referring people to other work opportunities, a respectful goodbye makes a difference.
Through the lens of prevention, we might view the ending of an employment relationship instead as the beginning of an alumni relationship.
