View our guide to understand how to select the best outplacement services for your needs & communicate the news to all your audiences.

Best Outplacement Services

Looking for the best outplacement services for an upcoming layoff or reduction in force?

Whether the plan affects hundreds of employees or just a handful, which outplacement services you choose matters. Your selection will largely determine how well you mitigate the risks of the layoff and deliver on your unique needs – all without breaking the bank. From guidance on how to determine which positions will be eliminated to addressing company recovery issues, the outplacement firm you partner with should play a strategic role throughout the process.


Are the big guys the best outplacement services?

Lee Hecht Harrison (owned by The Adecco Group) and Right Management (owned by ManpowerGroup) are two of the biggest outplacement firms. You can also find many smaller, local providers. However, neither the biggest names in outplacement nor the hometown variety may be the best for your organization.
