During the lifetime of a company, it’s only natural to have employees leave or join the business. But as technology has evolved, there’s more to going and coming than just tidying up the office. When key staff members, especially those who work close to sensitive material like IT infrastructure, are heading out, there’s a process.
For new arrivals, workers have to learn a slew of systems, logins, and procedures to properly integrate with the company’s network. Additionally – depending on what they work on – they must get proper hardware, materials and supplies. Once they’ve successfully been introduced to the network and office, they go through the “onboarding” procedure.
Conversely, when an employee is leaving the organization, all those same logins, credentials and proximities to sensitive info must be removed. You don’t want them to have a key back into the building they don’t work in.
