Laying staff off

The rapid rate of change means you need to hit the ground running both before and after laying staff off.

Your star talent needs reassurance that their values still align with your company’s vision. With talent retention being a key concern for HR, investing in outplacement when laying staff off proves you are invested in the success of everyone involved.

Outplacement counseling, or an outplacement coach, provides the needed expertise to help exiting employees land the best new role for them. Our clients commend us for being highly successful at helping employees transition. Coaching focuses on the practical side of the transition as well as the emotional aspects of change, including loss, separation, fear, and anger.

What is Outplacement Coaching?

An outplacement coach is someone with training and professional experience who advises people on how to transition after job loss. The goal is a successful transition – whether that’s a replacement job, new career after upskilling, part-time consulting, starting a business, or active retirement.

Coaching focuses on the practical side of the transition as well as the emotional aspects of change, including loss, separation, fear, and anger. Outplacement counseling helps the exiting employee and organization rebuild confidence and a sense of empowerment after laying staff off.
