It’s always hard to lose someone from your team, even if the decision is mutual. Emotions can flow deeply – from sadness, to anger, to hope for what might be coming next.
But in the midst of all those emotions, you might forget some important steps as you offboard the employee. If you don’t have effective systems in place, you could leave your team open to risk, especially if the transition is a turbulent one. Smart churches have systems in place for when someone transitions off the team to help protect both the church and the individual.
Here are ten tasks you should consider as you face a staff transition:1. Inform the right people.
9. Get an updated address.
10. Establish rehire status.
As you can see, these tasks cover many different departments and would be nearly impossible for one person to perform all on their own, but each one of them is essential to managing an employee resignation.Rather than have one person responsible for the whole process, the smartest thing you can do is establish an automated process. An automated process will let you design a workflow that includes all the steps needed for a smooth resignation. This ensures that you don’t miss out on any of these tasks, and you also have a clearly documented audit trail.Employee resignation is just one of the many processes a church can automate to help ease their administrative burden and make things run smoothly.
