What is Outplacement Support?
Businesses may need to consider options around their business operations and this may include the need to, unfortunately, reduce their employee numbers. However, by offering Outplacement Support to affected employees you enable them to move forward positively with their careers and make the redundancy experience as constructive as possible. Outplacement Support provides help, direction and guidance to employees in finding new roles. For example, this support can incorporate activities such as CV review, interview training and preparation, tailored one-to-one coaching, general job search advice and an overview of career assessments.
Why should you invest in Outplacement Support?
It is a common question, ‘why should we invest in helping people who are no longer our employees?’ The reason for this is to demonstrate that your company and brand values are mindful of their employees. It also signifies genuine care for them.
In turn, it helps maintain your company’s reputation whilst showing the employees who remain with you, that as a business you will do the best you can for all your employees. Even if they must leave, providing Outplacement Support for your employees is essentially giving them an opportunity in a world of uncertainty.
