OUTPLACEMENT MEETS STAKEHOLDER NEEDS
Digital transformation is rapidly changing the nature of work, often causing staff retrenchments, a major life event for Employees, one that needs to be handled sensitively and with care.
Retrenchment negatively impacts all aspects of a person's life - family, friends, finances and confidence. Although Outplacement Support services are usually provided to Employees as part of their redundancy package HOW to conduct the Outplacement in the best interests of Employees, often presents a challenge to Employers.
Our programs are customised. There is no one-size-fits all. The best Outplacement Support services are those that meet the needs of both the Employee and the Employer; support services that empower ALL STAKEHOLDERS throughout the redundancy process.
BENEFITS THE COMPANY BRAND
A well-planned, transparent Outplacement offers a compelling ROI as it relates to Employer brand preservation. It demonstrates clearly, the company values their Employees' contribution.
Outplacement support helps morale, reinforces retention, motivation and commitment to ongoing productivity by remaining staff, who after witnessing the downsizing, would feel demotivated and insecure.
HELPS RECRUIT FUTURE TALENT
It's easy today, for Employees who feel forgotten, to become disgruntled open to writing negative reviews on social media platforms such as LinkedIn, Glassdoor, Facebook and Indeed, damaging the company’s reputation and future recruitment prospects.
A strong Employer brand is critical to attracting the best talent in the market. Research indicates 75% of candidates would only accept a job with a company that has positive reviews.
CREATES EMPLOYEE AMBASSADORS
Compassionate Outplacement helps elevate the company's position as an Employer of Choice, fostering positive relationships inside and outside the company, to create an Alumni of current and past Employees.
NOTIFICATION DAY SUPPORT
Having an experienced professional onsite at this time, can be a support to the Employer, who has to deliver the news, and the Employees who, even if the news is anticipated, will experience a wide range of emotions. Depending on their personal situation some Employees may be very concerned about their futures, their ability to find a new job, their self esteem and may still be experiencing an attachment to their now, former organisation. Others will view the news as an opportunity to reskill and change careers.
Onsite Outplacement support can help manage all these feelings and assure Employees there are measures in place to help everyone affected to move forward quickly to new opportunities.
