Staff Leaving Checklist 11

Staff Leaving and officially tendering their resignation needs a number of steps to make  their departure run smoothly. 

Leaving a job is big decision for anyone so making the whole process simple and painless can help both the employee and the business owner.

Business process management allows every process within the business to be documented and have a detailed process to guide new members of staff taking on that role.
