Avoid Losing More Than You Let Go
November 7, 2018
With over thirty years of experience, Career Partners International (CPI) has repeatedly demonstrated the value of quality outplacement services. CPI makes the difficult process of a career transition as smooth as possible for candidates and clients. Over 80% of participants working with CPI land in equal or better paying positions than they previously held. On average, candidates land in 2.73 months, twice as fast as the national average. These results protect the employer brand that clients have worked so hard to develop. But how can offering outplacement services to separated employees benefit those who remain in the organization after a reduction?
A termination or layoff can leave remaining workers questioning the security of their positions. Knowing that even in the worst-case scenario their peers are taken care of and treated with respect enables the workplace return to normalcy. Offering separated employees outplacement services keeps remaining employees focused and engaged. By providing career transition services organizations prove that they care about their employees, even if they are no longer with the company.
Remaining employees have a personal connection with those who have been separated. Many have spent 8+ hours a day, five days a week, for years building both personal and professional relationships with those who have lost their jobs. They care about their wellbeing and will likely stay in contact. CPI facilitates candidates landing great new opportunities. 97% of participants report being highly satisfied with their outplacement experience, easing concerns of their peers.
CPI assists organizations through all phases of the separation process to make outplacement programs as effective as possible. From planning, to notification support, to change management training, CPI coaches support both the organization and candidates to ensure a seamless transition. Handled properly, CPI ensures that outplacement services are beneficial to all stakeholders, protects the employer brand, moves candidates into great opportunities, and keeps remaining employees focused and engaged.
