ABR HR Insights Magazine Autumn 2019

In every edition of our HR Insights Magazine, influential and wide-ranging thought leaders in HR, recruitment, staffing, management, and other fields discuss themes that are relevant to our clients’ businesses.

Workplaces are full of relationships, and the one that exists between an organization and its candidates and employees forms the foundation of everything the organization does. In this issue of our HR Insights, we have gathered some great articles that speak to the importance of building and strengthening the company–employee relationship at all stages of the employment cycle.

Feature Article: Offboarding: What it Means and Why it Matters

Contrary to popular belief, the end of someone’s employment does not necessarily mark the end of his or her relationship with that company. As Brian Anderson writes in “Offboarding: What It Means and Why It Matters,” the last stage of someone’s employment cycle with an organization can have long-lasting effects on the organization’s employer brand, performance management, and potential to hire boomerang employees.

Abby Perkins continues the examination of boomerang employees in “6 Tips for Interviewing and Hiring Former Employees.” Because these candidates are already familiar with the company (and already know many of the people there), there are a number of special considerations to keep in mind when engaging with this talent pool.

In “Worth the Investment: Why Corporate Culture Is Important,” Julie Dodd explains how today’s tight job market makes it more important than ever for organizations “to foster a high-functioning, people-first corporate culture” that attracts candidates and retains current employees.

A company runs on its people, and those people do their best work when they are engaged and feel connected to the organization and its purpose. In its relationships with its employees, a company can promote the growth of that engagement and purpose.
