The What, Why and How of Outplacement

When faced with employee problems or organizational change, management must explore options to resolve the issues, reduce costs and/or increase efficiencies. Terminating staff is often an unfortunate reality.

Over the last 30 years, businesses have found that Outplacement and Career Transition Services reduces the trauma for displaced employees. The news of losing one’s job may be amplified for any number of reasons – a sluggish or saturated economy, age, or job specializations just to name a few.

Organizations that provide an Outplacement Program demonstrate that they are trying to minimize the impact of the employees’ job loss by providing professional assistance to expedite the job search process. When combined with a respectful termination meeting and a fair severance package, an Outplacement Program can diminish the risk of a lawsuit.

Impacted employees with Outplacement services have the benefit and the assurance of a professional coach – and cheerleader – in their corner. Career Transition Services typically include career evaluation/guidance, identifying job skills and accomplishments, resume writing, interview preparation, coaching and more.
