For talent management stakeholders conceptualizing onboarding is fun—welcoming a new member to a team, followed by the integration process, often signifies growth and new life for an organization. Consequently, most companies engage a great deal with the human capital management (HCM) functionality designed to support onboarding. By contrast, offboarding is oftentimes a cheerless process, as the loss of a trained and knowledgeable employee generally has a negative connotation, whether it means simply the loss of a skilled worker who will need to be replaced or the ill health of the company as a whole. Therefore, the offboarding process is habitually undertaken with low energy levels, leading as a natural result to the underutilization of the offboarding functionality available in most HCM systems.
Smart companies will invest in an HCM system with comprehensive onboarding and offboarding capabilities, and devote ample resources and time to ensure the offboarding process is smooth, while negative impacts are reduced and positive impacts maximized.

Human capital management (HCM) software is traditionally understood as addressing human resource (HR) plus talent management business requirements. While HR software is now quite affordable and adopted by many businesses, a comprehensive HCM suite that includes talent management modules is not equally accessible. Talent management products are relatively new on the market. Some of them, especially niche solutions, carry high integration costs, and others are expensive due to the novelty of the technology that they employ. However, talent management is attractive for almost all businesses regardless of their size, industry, or workforce particularities. Read the rest of this entry »
