What value does outplacement provide?

Outplacement is a well-established service in the UK, adopted by thousands of responsible organisations who recognise the importance of supporting employees as they leave the business. Historically, outplacement was predominantly focussed on those in senior positions but in a modern context, organisations now provide employees with Outplacement Support at all levels and grades.

Outplacement is now widely recognised as an integral part of the employee lifecycle, ensuring that employees leaving the organisation feel supported as they move onto the next phase of their career as brand advocates for the Employer.  When done well, Outplacement Support has the ability to impact organisational performance, create employment, generate wealth and ultimately change lives.
