Here are ten good reasons why offering job counselling or outplacement is a good investment.
- Structured process
You ensure a professional and structured process, providing the best possible process and least possible disturbance in a difficult time.
- Help dismissed employees move forward
Dismissed employees who receive outplacement counselling have significantly improved chances of quickly finding a new job and advance in their careers compared to employees who are not offered this opportunity.
- Rapid action
Dismissed employees receive immediate professional assistance, helping them find a constructive perspective on the future and their opportunities more quickly.
- Send clear signals
You will send a clear and tangible signals to the remaining organisation that you are responsible and take care of employees throughout their employment and dismissal process. This provides a sense of security and credibility.
- Demonstrate responsibility
You both convey and practise social responsibility, internally and externally – in relation to the local community, former and potential employees, board members, investors, trade unions, politicians and the media.
- Professional counselling
You receive professional counselling before, during and after the termination process, ensuring clarity in the organisation and help to avoid pitfalls.
- Train the managers
Managers receive proper preparation, ensuring they feel secure about the task. Whether or not they have previously faced such a situation, managers must be mentally ready and thoroughly prepared. You thereby ensure consistent communication and action by individual managers and the management team.
- Ensure a dignified conversation
You ensure that the dismissal takes place appropriately and with respect for everyone involved.
- Clear communication
You get a professional and enhanced communication strategy for sending the right messages to the right people at the right time.
- Promote optimism in a difficult time
Dismissed employees will be a little more positive towards the workplace, as you are helping them move forward in a difficult time.
