Employee Lifecycle

Summary Definition: The entire journey of an employee within an organization, from initial recruitment and onboarding, through growth and development, to eventual departure or retirement.

What is the Employee Lifecycle?

The employee lifecycle is a comprehensive framework that maps out the various stages an employee goes through with an organization, including recruitment, onboarding, development, retention, offboarding, and advocacy. This framework provides a structured approach to managing and enhancing the employee experience at every stage.

Understanding and effectively managing the employee lifecycle is crucial for HR professionals and business leaders, as it impacts not only employee satisfaction and productivity but also the organization's ability to attract and retain top talent.

By focusing on each stage of the lifecycle, companies can create a more cohesive and supportive work culture and promote long-term growth for both employees and the organization.
