Have you had to fire someone remotely? 


Throughout my career, I’ve overseen 100s of remote terminations, both voluntary and involuntary. 


The way you treat exiting employees not only affects the individual being terminated but can also have ripple effects on your culture. A sour grapes terminated employee can disengage others on their way out the virtual door.


Want to know what success looks like? During my time at InVision, a globally distributed, fully remote company, we handled all employee exits remotely over video. Frequently, terminated employees would thank the People team and publicly recognize them for how they handled their offboarding experience. Exiting employees were thanking the People team for a job well done!


In this guide, you will learn how to approach voluntary and involuntary terminations with empathy and effective planning.


I built this guide to:

  • Share best practices for improving your offboarding program, for both voluntary and involuntary exits

  • Walk you through the important termination considerations, such as legal factors and taking a human-centric approach

  • Provide a step-by-step guide for offboarding logistics, such as pre-termination checklists, sample communications, and benchmark data


What’s included:

  • Remote Offboarding best practices guide

  • Pre-Termination checklist for managers

  • Sample Manager & People Team scripts for exit conversations

  • Severance package benchmarks

  • Sample exit survey template

  • Sample internal company communications


Terminating employees is one of the most challenging areas for People teams and managers alike. However, with the right approach and proper planning, the termination experience can go smoothly for all involved.
