Outplacement Service

A good beginning starts with a good ending

• What is Outplacement?
Outplacement is a career transition service that employers provide to displaced employees during times of restructuring.  This service enables former employees to move forward positively in their career on good terms with the company they are leaving.

How do we make this difficult transitional process easier for staff and beneficial to the company? We do this by providing a compassionate, supportive and practical career transition service. The guidance and practical advice of an effective outplacement service demonstrates the respect of an employer towards employee as their working relationship draws to a close. It also provides the company a unique opportunity to strengthen its core values and its commitment to remaining employees
