Learn more about us


Many of our clients have realised the positive effect and business benefits that can be derived from providing outplacement support to employees that have been affected by a redundancy:-



  • Providing support to departing employees demonstrates to those that are retained that the organisation really does care about their welfare. This in turn leaves the employers reputation intact and can also  improve morale during the period of any change process.
  • Assisting the affected individual with tailored outplacement support helps to turn their situation from a negative to a positive one, full of opportunity for future career development, self employment or entrepreneurship. 
  • Research shows that departing staff are less likely to seek legal redress against their employer when provided with outplacement support as part of a redundancy severance package. Such employees are more likely to feel their efforts, achievements and contributions to their employer (often over many years) have been recognised and appreciated.
