Do you keep old employees as authors on blogs?SOLVE

We have quite a number of blog posts on our blog with previous employees as author - some were written by them & some were not (written by agency). Can anyone recommend a course of action here - do I change the authorship or keep it as is? What would be best?

Hi @ESc! I think @edjusten gave good guidance. It's different from situation to situation, but we'll typically recommend that they keep the original author of the content as-is, provided that person is still in good graces as Ed had suggested.
If we do need to change authors, we'll typically refresh the content prior to republishing so we're not giving credit for someone else's work to a new author. In other cases we might remove the original author's name and publish under the brand. Neither are preferable.
If you do keep the original author, you might consider changing the email address, URL and description listed in their bio section.
