Employee Life Cycle

Definitions: It is essentially managing employees from when they first fill out an application or submit a resume to your organization, to managing them on a day to day basis, and finally preparing the employee to exit the organization.

It is  is a human resources model that identifies stages in employees’ careers to help guide their management and optimize associated processes.


The “employment life cycle” corresponds to the steps employees follow during their time within the organization, from their first contacts with the recruiter to their departure (via their integration, development, possible training programs and promotions…). It may thus be considered that the HR management of employees entails the following:

  1. Recruitment & Selection
  2. Onboarding & Orientation
  3. Career Planning
  4. Career Development
  5. Termination/Departure
