Outplacement - Company
Employers that implement a quality outplacement program will benefit from the stability and optimized productivity of a smooth workforce transition.
By partnering with an outplacement firm employees selected to be part of your reduction-in-force will be engaged by their personalized transition program. Your former employees attention will quickly shift from termination to opportunity. This new, forward focus will reduce the potential of litigation; protect your brand and reputation in the community; increase the likelihood of re-recruitment after turnaround; maximize both the productivity and the morale of "survivor" workforce.
Comprehensive outplacement services encompass reduction-in-force planning, manager training, survivor counseling, and ongoing access to workforce planning tools, analysis and consultation.
Outplacement - Individual
For employees that have separated from their employer immediate, simultaneous implementation of both traditional job search and networking methods and state-of-the-art social media techniques.
Do you know what the stealth or hidden job market is? Do you know the Rule of 80/20? Do you use LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter? Do you know what a tweet is? Do you care what a tweet is?
Social Media outlets such as LinkedIn, Visual CV, Twitter, Ning, and Youtube are shaping the Stealth-Market job search. Using a blog and/or personal webpage to establish and promote a virtual presence will position you ahead of the greater, wild pack of job seekers. Your personal comfort, specific target industrys trends, access, resources, and your time will dictate the level of technology and social media that you integrate into your job search.
The ideal program will be part preparation for a traditional job search and networking and part training to use the powerful, free, open access, social media tools that are available to you to supercharge your networking and find a job hidden in the stealth-market.
