The End of Your Employee’s Tenure Should Not Mean the End of the Relationship 

As long service awards are gradually giving way to temporary positions where short term contracts are rapidly becoming commonplace,  organisations with an engaged and well managed corporate alumni network have a competitive advantage.

Corporate alumni networks are rapidly growing in importance as the general tenure of employees at a single company is decreasing, this shift is creating an agile employment model for the new  generation where connectivity is a non-negotiable.

We provide a model that creates balance between the bi-directional value proposition to both parties to achieve the following returns:

  • An alumni network that helps you hire great people

  • An alumni network that provides useful business intelligence

  • An alumni network that refers new customers

  • An alumni network that are brand ambassadors

 

Creating Bi-Directional Value

Leading organisations are increasingly recognising the value of implementing alumni programmes, with many realising the benefits of activating this component of their Talent Life Cycle.

 

A number of global organisations have reported that a significant portion of their recruits are returning employees recruited from their alumni network. Increasing the possibility of rehiring former employees isn’t the only benefit to creating a corporate alumni programme, as organisations stand to save further when referrals for new talent hires and business is generated by their alumni network.

When considering the bi-directional value proposition to members of the alumni network, many consider this platform to be an essential career management tool which creates networking opportunities and connectivity to find new career or business opportunities.

Optimising your Alumni Programme

 

  • The Exit Process should include proactive onboarding, welcoming employees into the Corporate Alumni Network as they are transitioning.

  • When reaching out to a population with broad interests, alumni engagement requires a tailored marketing strategy.

  • Leverage Executives to raise the visibility of your Alumni Programme, can play a key role in growing your network.

  • Events that drive engagement are a pivotal part of a successful corporate alumni programme as they provide an important forum for corporate alumni to stay connected, informed and engaged throughout the year.

  • When it comes to effectively creating, managing, and realising value from a corporate alumni programme, a formal , secure and branded network is most effective. You have control over the branding, own all the data within the network and can integrate internal applications with the alumni network to facilitate business processes.

In the pursuit of an optimised organisation, HR processes that are not seen as the core competency of internal teams are being outsourced as confirmed by the increasing trend of outsourcing exit interviews.

In building an optimised organisation the core function of an internal HR team should be analysing and using the exit interview data collected by a third party, to improve the organisation’s talent management practices, in stead of spending time and resources facilitating the exit interview process. In addition, there is a growing body of evidence that the process of conducting in-house exit interviews is flawed.

Once an employee resigns they typically want their exit to be as smooth as possible and therefore avoid giving honest feedback in fear of burning bridges.  This results in organisations collecting data on exit outcomes rather than the actual reasons.  

 

When outsourcing the exit process, there is no fear of retribution or burning bridges as the discussion is with a third party expert and there is a confidentiality clause. 

Vitatalent provides exit-interview solutions as an outsourced service aimed at optimising organisational processes and providing valuable insights and actionable reports on exit data analysis outcomes, trends and recommendations for consideration.
