The Employment Life Cycle



The Employment Life Cycle is a human resource management model that identifies stages in employees’ careers to help guide their management and optimize their impact on the business.

Specific employment life cycle models vary, but common stages include: recruitment, training, layoffs, and business planning.  Partner with MOED’s Business Services Team to decrease cost and increase effectiveness at every step of the Employment Life Cycle.
