Companies are often to overlook the benefits an outplacement provider can bring to their organisation… This Valentine’s Day we are sharing 3 benefits of using an outplacement provider.
Love the support your employees are getting during a restructure
A good outplacement provider is there to support you along the way – no one wants to restructure, but to keep a company viable and future proof, this may be necessary. To make a restructure easier for all involved support should be offered through outplacement support services. This may include support such with CV writing skills, exploring new job opportunities and help with interviews.
Love your remaining employees…
Outplacement support doesn’t just limit itself to laid off members of staff – it is also there to support existing employees and ensuring that morale and productivity are kept up. The key to this is clear communications and assuring that employees have by no means been let go of due to a fault of their own.
Love your corporate brand
If outplacement is carried out correctly your corporate brand will benefit from it. How organisations handle a restructure says a lot about company values and will help to attract future talent as leavers are more likely to give positive feedback after they have been made redundant on sites like Glassdoor.
Whilst many organisations may think it is expensive to hire an external outplacement company, the benefits far outweigh the cost. Employees that are looked after during the restructuring process will continue to feel positive towards the organisation, attribute to new business and may seek a future role if the organisation is hiring again in the future.
