Outplacement is the provision of assistance to redundant employees in finding new employment, and it’s usually offered by the employer that is making the redundancies as a benefit over and above any redundancy payment that may be offered. Let’s state the obvious. Redundancy is tough on all parties involved in the process. As an employer you don’t want to find yourself in the position of having to make any of your roles redundant leading to the release of people you have worked alongside and invested in. Redundancy from an employees perspective is even tougher. Fear of the unknown and panic about what may, or may not, be coming next. Offering an Outplacement service as part of the redundancy support package that your organisation offers can help to ensure that.
