4 Ways BambooHR Helps You Crack Offboarding

Whether an employee has decided to leave your organization or you’re letting people go, offboarding triggers a long to-do list for HR. So long, it can feel like a mission: impossible. There’s announcing the departure, collecting company equipment, finding, hiring, and training the replacement, conducting the exit interview, and more.

Depending on the size of your organization, HR might have to do it all. But just like every super-spy has gadgets up their sleeves, you have offboarding in BambooHR. Here are our top four solutions to help you crack the code to a smooth offboarding process, save time, and create a better experience for your departing employees.

Code Cracking Solution #4: Making the Final Paycheck Painless

On an employee’s last day, coworkers often participate in small rituals of parting—signing the farewell card, eating a slice of “We’ll Miss You!” cake, and inheriting desk plants. For the employee, there’s saying goodbye to friends, checking off the last few things on their to-do list, and turning in their badge or equipment. But the most important last item on their list is collecting their last paycheck.

This isn’t something that’s immediately visible to employees, but they’ll definitely notice if it’s not done properly. Adding this task in your offboarding checklist helps keep your payroll running smoothly and employees get their last paycheck without having added stress or annoyance.

And here’s a bonus: if you run payroll with BambooHR, it’s as easy as adding a Final Pay Date when you terminate the employee.
