Why Employers Offer Outplacement ?

Reduce Stress

Outplacement can reduce the pain of employee separation by offering an outplacement benefit that facilitates a smoother transition for the departing employee and helps the manager who communicates the layoff decision.

Recover Faster

Dislocated employees will land a new job faster. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (2020), unemployed workers are out of work for an average of 13 months. On average, our members land new positions in 4 -8 months.

Enhance Reputation

Providing career transition assistance to impacted employees may soften the blow, help them leave on a more positive note, and mitigate the perception of the layoff news within the community. New employees are more likely to choose an employer that offers outplacement benefits.

Boost Morale 

While businesses have justifiable reasons for layoffs, providing support for the impacted employee helps the morale of those who continue to work for you. This benefit helps positively influence how they feel about the company and supports the retention of those employees

Reduce Costs

Because outplacement support helps employees transition faster and more effectively than on their own, the mutual costs of unemployment and risk of lawsuits decreases. It may also lower unemployment claims if laid-off employees are able to return to work more quickly.

Level the Field

Younger workers may be tech-savvy, but they often lack the job search skills and a network to find a job.  Older workers face steeper odds and need to learn how to overcome ageism in the hiring process. Both benefit from the emotional support provided by career coaches and the information provided in workshops.
