What is Outplacement?
If you’re new to the topic of outplacement, you might have a lot of questions about this benefit: What is outplacement? Who is it for? How can it benefit my company? Read on for answers to these and other frequently asked questions.
In the age of social media and employer review sites, the employee-employer relationship has changed tremendously. Gone are the days when employees stayed with an employer for decades, building their careers within a single company. Today, people switch jobs often—and publicly share their opinions about their employers on Social Media, especially when exiting the company.
This has made company transitions, such as layoffs and other involuntary employee exits, critical moments for companies concerned about brand protection.
So what is outplacement? Outplacement is an employee benefit afforded to workers who have recently been laid off from their jobs and seek assistance to transition back into the workforce. Learn more about out program below.

How do our coaches get your employee moving? We use the ACT method. The Acceptance & Commitment Theory of Steven C. Hayes. This is a relatively new form of coaching from the trend of positive psychology, which transforms negative thoughts into acceptance in order to come to a solution.
Our coaches are trained in this method and successfully apply it in ‘return-to-work’, career and outplacement issues. It is our experience that guidance through this method can focus more quickly on the actions needed to reach a solution that is supported by both employee and employer.
