Dealing with Data Loss and establishing a ‘data exit’ strategy with Emily Curtin #90

Nick Day is joined on The HR L&D Podcast sofa by Emily Curtin, Chief Client Officer at Profusion, to discuss why it is essential that HR teams introduce a ‘data exit strategy’ to safeguard against the risks associated with data loss.

Let’s be honest; this risk has been exacerbated considerably by the ‘Great Resignation’.

With widespread remote working and the highest-ever levels of employee turnover experienced by companies worldwide, the reality is that businesses are now at a greater risk than ever of losing valuable, sometimes mission-critical data.

HR teams can help stop this by introducing a data loss focus as part of the formalised exit interview process.

Today, Emily Curtin from Profusion will be providing us all with the simple steps HR teams can take to ensure that their data does not go with them when employees leave!
