Redundancy is an inevitable part of doing business in today’s volatile economy.

Outplacement services play a vital role in lessening the blow felt by both parties when it’s time to part company.

Outplacement agencies help laid off employees better acquaint themselves with the job market. They can also assist anyone exiting make a smooth transition to a new career.

These career management services are generally paid for by the employer. Along with severance pay and the usual benefits, outplacement is an increasingly common component of modern severance packages.

Outplacement services are beneficial not only to employees leaving the company but also to the organization itself.

Outplacement Services:
Benefits to the Employee

There are many areas in which career transition services are useful for laid off employees.

Here are some of the main ways the best outplacement agencies work with employees:

  • Give general career guidance
  • Enhance job search skills
  • Hone interview techniques
  • Help with resume writing
  • Assist with network development

Outplacement Services:

It’s not just the outgoing employee that can reap the rewards of an outplacement service.

Organizations can expect to experience:

  • A well maintained brand and a reputation for caring
  • Better morale among existing employees

  • Increased productivity
  • Minimized liability for compensation payments

With sessions lasting anywhere from a few months to a year or more, career transition services ensure everyone can make a smooth shift with the minimum of disruption.

There are many sound reasons to choose our outplacement and career transition services.

We’ve been a leader in the career development space for over a decade.

Before we outline why you should choose Careers by Design, it’s worth mentioning our unique selling point.

Our core purpose is to help Connect Head & Heart.

We want your employees to Feel Better, Do Better & Get What They Want, Faster.

We’d like your organization to benefit, too.

So, what are our strengths, and how can that help you and your exiting employees?

  • Experience: We’ve been in outplacement for over 14 years now and bring all that experience to bear on your organization. Our positive and holistic approach can bring about enduring change. It’s the opposite of a quick fix.

  • Highly Qualified Coaching Team: Our team of carefully chosen and fully qualified career coaches are a breath of fresh air in a largely unregulated industry. Each of our practitioners is hand-picked and has dealt with hundreds of satisfied clients.

  • Career Transition Services With a Twist: The majority of outplacement services deal with nothing more than general counseling, generic resume advice and a bit of brushing up on job skills. We tackle all of these areas in depth, and with extreme efficiency. We also do far, far more. Resilience training is personalized and we focus on stress management and productivity as well as emotional support. Put simply, we offer an overall package unrivalled by our competitors.

  • Evidence-Based Approach: The resilience training we provide is underpinned by HeartMath methodology. HeartMath tools are used by top-tier companies worldwide seeking to reduce stress and make the workplace more productive. All our assessment tools have a proven track record. Not only do we champion industry best practice, we also innovatively employ what works in related fields.
