What are Outplacement Services and why should you offer them?
Outplacement services are essentially career coaching services provided through a third-party company and paid for by a former employer to help employees impacted by layoffs to transition into new employment. Offering outplacement services as part of your employee benefits package will not only help the impacted employees to more quickly transition to a new role but they will be less likely to pursue lawsuits. It also has a very positive impact on the remaining workforce, it sends the message that you care and they will be less likely to want to look elsewhere.
With the increase in layoffs and company mergers over the past decade, organizations are turning to Outplacement Specialists, such as RAI Resources, to help protect their businesses and their employees. Managing change within an organization can seem daunting, but companies are much more conscious of the need to cut costs and make the most of their existing resources.
Quality outplacement will provide a smooth, tailored solution through the transition.
