Our employee outplacement service is a program designed to give consultation, advice and strategic guidance to individuals in the middle of a career change or those transitioning from one job to another.
Changing careers and transitioning to new jobs can be a stressful experience where most individuals feel vulnerable and unprepared to meet the challenges and inherent risks that come with the change.
Developing and providing means of support, mentorship and guidance in times like these can mean better results, more motivation and a better outlook for the future. Outplacement Services provided by a company can fulfil these requirements in a structured and personalised manner that consider the unique situation of each individual and work towards creating the best strategy for their requirements.
What is a career or employee outplacement service?
An employee outplacement service is a program designed to give consultation, advice and strategic guidance to individuals in the middle of a career change or those transitioning from one job to another. The purpose of these consultancy services and programs is to give individuals a roadmap that is designed with their needs in mind to help them adjust to new roles or find better roles in their industry in the future. These services involve help with resume building, job searching, interview preparation as well as psychological counselling to help cope with the stress and demands of their present situation.
The benefits of an outplacement service
An outplacement service has benefits for both the company and the employee. With regards to the company, the program delivers a way to help employees find their place comfortably in the case of job loss, downsizing or resignation for any reason. This way, the company does not leave its employees stranded in the middle of a tough situation, but rather actively helps their employees adjust, respond and benefit from adverse scenarios and job changes.
A positive brand image for companies
It also helps the company create a positive brand image amongst its clients, stakeholders and all existing employees and allows the company to deliver a proactive approach that not only helps the staff cope with the inherent stress of the change, but also protects the companies reputation. In the long run, the company can discard the negative associations that people may build up in adverse situations and helps the organization work towards more growth and optimisation in the future.
Guides employees, providing them with the tools and resources
For the employee, the services provide a framework that can guide the individual towards a new job role or employment by providing them with all the tools and resources they need to make things work. This not only reduces the mental strain and burden on the individual but also contributes positively to their future success by helping the individual find the right roles and opportunities and to respond to them with complete preparation.
What does an employee outplacement service consist of?
