Outplacement support helps transition staff into new opportunities.
In our current turbulent economy, employment termination can occur for any number of reasons. Whatever the reasons, termination is a complex, traumatic process. We believe that, in order to be meaningful, outplacement services must address the circumstances of the termination and the realistic career expectations of the person involved.
We offer customizable, multi-step solutions to outplacement support that may include:
- Pre-Termination Planning: We work with clients to determine the scope of the project and begin required documentation. A plan that suits the needs of both the employer and the former employee is put together.
- Assessment: An individualized analysis is performed to evaluate strengths, areas requiring improvement, and career options. This analysis is based on interviews with co-workers, supervisors, and other persons acquainted with the employee in a variety of settings. The information gathered is summarized in a confidential report and is then used to formulate a customized plan for coaching, training and career planning.
- Transition Coaching: This phase offers a variety of options, which are personalized for each person based on the results from the Assessment phase. At a minimum, coaching on resume writing and interviewing skills is provided. Finally, we assist the subject(s) with help in formulating an effective and realistic Career Plan
- Working on the Career Plan: During this phase, we provide former employees with frequent progress meetings and, if necessary, office space and tools.
