What do you do when you need to downsize? Just giving your staff termination papers is so difficult for you and your staff. Providing professional outplacement services with consideration to your separating employees is not just the responsible thing to do - it also makes sound business sense. The quality of one’s experience with an outplacement provider affects how separated employees, your remaining staff, and even your community will judge your company.
The termination facts are difficult for anyone to digest. Finding new employment and dealing with issues of self-worth and pride can be overwhelming. With outplacement services, your departing employees are much more likely to find a job that's fulfilling and appropriate, and to find it faster. That kind of success reduces the length of unemployment, as well as the terminated employee’s financial difficulties and emotional stress. It also reduces the likelihood of termination-related lawsuits.
In addition to providing outplacement, we can help you plan your termination process, prepare your managers for the separation meetings, and be on site during notification to quickly transition your departing employees.
Outplacement Needs Have Changed
Today's displaced professionals are likely to have a home computer with Internet access, so rather than providing office space and typists, we focus on providing what people really need – expert one-on-one guidance with an experienced consultant, who creates an action plan tailored to each client's unique needs, working with them to reach their goals as quickly as possible. We meet with each client in person every week and also stay in touch via email and phone.
We recognize that someone who has been downsized isn't in the best frame of mind to attend cookie-cutter group seminars, sitting together with people they don't know and hearing irrelevant or even inappropriate information about how to conduct a job search. Instead, we work individually alongside each person to help with their unique needs.
For large groups or for non-exempt or hourly employees we deliver customized highly effective, highly motivational workshops. Give Bonnie a call for more information -- 410-957-2800
