The Autumn issue of Intelligent Sourcing Magazine (né Professional Outsourcing) is all about how outsourcing and automation can shape, benefit and impact the career lifecycle of an employee. I was asked to write about the trickiest part of that cycle – the final stage where an employee exits a company.
