So, what exactly is an outplacement service, and why should you engage The Proven Group to provide these services for staff members exiting your employment?
In today’s job market, restructure and workforce change is a regular part of day-to-day business and will affect almost everyone at some point in their career. Outplacement services are a common support provided by organisations to assist individuals during career transition and career change.
Outplacement services provide support and assistance for employees leaving your business involuntarily to assist them in securing employment elsewhere. This has never been so popular since the C-19 word.
Employers who decide to provide outplacement services are not required to offer this support but choose to do so to assist their employees to move forward positively and onto new opportunities. This support is a strong indication of companies who care about their people and their brand. Additionally, Australian businesses now realise that, by providing an outplacement service following redundancies, it can reduce workplace negativity and increase morale for the remaining employees, as they know that beyond their tenure, support and assistance is there for them.
Outplacement services initially involves a face-to-face or online meeting with one of our team members to determine an individual’s particular needs. Once the scope has been established, a strategy is then determined. We equip your exiting employees with tools and skills (through coaching, training or practice) to obtain employment in the same, or another industry.
We further assist your exiting employees with:
• DISC profiling that can help with identifying potential new career directions
• Resume Writing
• Application Cover Letters
• Interview Coaching
• Personal LinkedIn Profiles
• …and so much more
Importantly, you should know that we care about the future of your exiting employees and will assist them to transition into their next role or career opportunity. Get in touch to arrange a confidential, no-obligation discussion.
