Would you expect to see an organisation welcoming new employees more often than the rate at which their employees leave ? In either circumstance, these events can be difficult for the CIO to manage.
On the one hand, they must quickly provide the new employee with a functional and reliable workstation, and on the other, the CIO is often the last person to find out important information such as the start date, identity of the new employee, and the hardware to be allocated.
The worldwide turnover rate for companies of all sizes and from all sectors as a whole is by around 23 %.
For IT departments, managing this turnover rate is especially tedious: whether it’s as part of a transfer or a permanent departure, the CIO must retrieve the outgoing employee’s terminal, clear it, and reinstall it with tools dedicated to the new employee.
On average, the cost of staff turnover for IT services ranges from €100 to €150 depending on the amount of time it takes to reinstall the terminal, install the software suite suited to the user, and provide the hardware.
Staff turnover is often a source of tension between IT departments and management/users.
Departure or hiring notifications often arrive late to the IT department, although they are expected to react quickly to accommodate the new employee.
Need to reinstall the desktop
Limited amount of time that the new workstation is available
Costs of between €100 and €150 can be expected per desktop for recycling
Deterioration of communication between the IT department and management
Loss of income/cost of delay in the event of poor turnover management by the CIO
The ceBoxOS® solution helps the CIO to resolve issues with staff turnover. Is an employee leaving? With ceBoxOS®, the desktops are cleared every day thanks to the read-only mode, which makes it possible for the computer to be restored to the image predefined by the desktop administrator at each startup.
Welcoming a new employee? The desktop administrator has already prepared the master images (masters), which will meet management’s various needs (an accounting master, another administrative master, etc.). The CIO just has to give the ceBoxOS® to the new employee and assign the proper master containing the OS and applications. Both the desktop and the employee are immediately operational.
The CIO immediately receives a positive response thanks to their quick reaction time. Furthermore, the time allocated to staff turnover is considerably reduced, leaving the CIO more time for projects with higher added value.
