A layoff can have a devastating impact on employees. It's not just a loss of income, but also an identity and a community of colleagues. The prospect of the next step can feel overwhelming. Investing in outplacement services is not just about the outgoing employees. It's also about the company's reputation, brand, and the remaining employees. Providing support to those leaving the company can show that it values and respects its employees, even during difficult times.
Outplacement services empower laid-off employees to move on faster to the next stage in their professional lives. They will be given tools to define their passions, direct their next steps, and become hired again typically sooner than if outplacement was not provided. Outplacement coaching is invaluable, especially for people who have been out of the job market for a while. If a company is in the position of laying off longtime employees, it’s more than likely they’re not up on the latest job search trends, don’t know the importance of LinkedIn, and have no idea how to structure their time in transition.
