Can you influence exiting employees to bolster your employment brand?

As you may know, Mullin International and Hunt Scanlon Media are conducting a series of surveys to help fill in the gap of research on the topic of off-boarding. The key findings to date are:

– Management’s concerns and investments in off-boarding have escalated.

– Off-boarded employees’ impressions of companies are affected by the way they are treated as well as severance and outplacement offerings, which have been expanding recently.

– Keeping key positions filled with the right people has become increasingly more difficult, especially in technical jobs.

– The off-boarding process has widespread implications, especially to former employees’ perceptions of the employment brand, but also to the perceptions of prospective job candidates.

Our current survey, which only takes a minute or two, focuses on the risks that off-boarding presents, and how your company is managing those risks.

In exchange for your participation, we will send you the full report when the study concludes. We would greatly appreciate your participation.

We’d like your input.
