It doesn't matter if you're bringing a new team member on board or letting someone go, managing employee transitions requires a specific set of guidelines. Enlisting in a checklist helps ensure the process goes smoothly.

Change is one of the few things in life that you can count on, and it's even more true when it comes to managing a team at work. Whether you are welcoming a new employee to the team or letting one go, it's important to establish best processes. Adding checklists to your management tool box will help to seamlessly transition employees

Carefully managing the onboarding and offboarding process of an employee or contractorsaves time, effort, and money. When bringing on a new employee, it's easy to provide too much or not enough access if you don't have a policy in place with specific guidelines.
