Employee separation describes when an employee leaves their employer for any reason. These separations might be voluntary, because the employee chooses to leave, or involuntary, when the employer decides to end the relationship. Some employees simply abandon their job for a variety of reasons, nefarious and otherwise. Organizations also choose to downsize and eliminate jobs within the company by offering early retirements or laying-off workers.
Organizational employees go through an employment cycle that starts with their recruitment and ends when they leave the organization. Managers handle employee terminations on a regular basis, regardless of where they work. This course discusses the different reasons employees leave their jobs and how it impacts the companies they leave.
