Quick question on sharing a folder with SharePoint / OneDrive for Business.

What is the best practice on sharing a folder for employees to work in without creating it inside another users OneDrive?  I assume creating a private group in SharePoint and have users sync it?  Our worry is that a folder is made by an employee, they leave or get terminated and that account gets shutdown - all users would lose access at that point, correct?

This is for OneDrive for Business.

Thanks!

Put them in a group/modern site, it will continue working even after the onwer has left, and you can simply designate another owner.

Group/modern site that resides in SharePoint? (Sorry, it seems very obvious that is it, just making sure) :)

Yup. That's what SPO is intended for, collaboration. OneDrive is more "personal", although you can share files/folders it's harder to manage for the reason you stated above.
