New Offboarding Solution Available Through Lawson's Enwisen Business

ST. PAUL, MN--(Marketwire - Oct 4, 2011) - Lawson Software, an Infor affiliate, today introduced Enwisen Offboarding. Enwisen Offboarding is an online solution designed to help manage all steps in the employee offboarding process. It extends the portfolio of HR Service Delivery offerings from Lawson that help companies manage the entire employee lifecycle. The new solution, which was introduced during the 2011 HR Technology Conference & Exposition in Las Vegas, is designed to help reduce administrative efforts, streamline communications and approvals, and reduce costs.

Whether voluntary or involuntary, departing employees have a need for timely, consistent communications to help them make critical decisions concerning their benefit plans, 401(k) balances and other benefits. Enwisen Offboarding provides 24/7 access to this information, outside the organization's network via a standard Internet connection. The solution also helps companies manage action items associated with IT network access, facilities and financial/payroll accounts by identifying and alerting all parts of the organization affected by an employee departure.

"This solution was developed to help meet the intense communication and decision making needs of the employee and HR during a critical career event," said Larry Dunivan, senior vice president of Global Human Capital Management Products for Lawson. "It allows employees to access personalized information and complete necessary forms at their convenience, from the privacy of their home. It also helps HR maintain compliance with mandated federal and state separation regulations, helping to reduce legal risk. Offboarding typically requires significantly more steps and generates more questions than onboarding, so there is a need to streamline processes and reduce costs. Ultimately this helps HR staff prioritize their current and future workforce concerns."

Beyond automating forms and workflow, Enwisen Offboarding helps manage employee departures with a step-by-step tour, including personalized communications based on location, job role, or type of separation. This tour is available outside an organization's firewall for 90 days after an employee departure and can be accessed from any internet connection, allowing tour completion post-employment.

Key features include:

For employees: A personalized tour based on employee role and type of departure that includes information to support post-employment decisions, and an acknowledgement of individual communications received. The interactive format and detailed information delivers answers to common questions quickly, and helps reduce calls to HR.
For line managers: Workflow checklists and/or forms help ensure timely completion of all departure-related tasks.
For HR and administrators: Analytic dashboards and consoles help monitor workflow processes and employee use of the personalized tours through the offboarding process.

Lawson is showcasing its solutions at this week's HR Technology Conference and Exposition in Las Vegas at booth 307 for Lawson products and booth 426 for the Enwisen products.
