Making redundancies or displacing people within your business can be daunting and feel like a very negative time. Supporting your employees with an effective outplacement programme can ensure that you give them the best chance to secure another role that is right for them while keeping your business safe. 

Here are 7 reasons why you need an effective, defined Outplacement process.

  • They give you consistency

During company restructures, it can feel stressful for everyone involved. Working in uncertain times can rock employee productivity, whether they are involved in the changes or not! Having a defined support process to inform and educate your employees and offer them a similar level of support across the board, can give you and them an anchor, helping people feel as stable as possible during these challenging times.

  • They allow you to stay ahead of market trends

A good outplacement programme gives you and your employees up-to-date information on what the market is doing, where the opportunities are and how to best position themselves to take advantage of them. Providing this knowledge to your employees will reinforce that you are ahead of the curve and set you apart from the competition. 

  • They show flexibility 

When companies are doing well and growing, we don’t think about Outplacement services. However, a flexible company is able to shift from different circumstances seamlessly, without it creating too much upheaval for those involved. Having your Outplacement processes already in place can show that, as a business, you are flexible and able to deal with whatever is thrown your way.

  • They save you time

When we are dealing with company changes and restructures, we often have to be very reactive, and adaptable, leaving us little time for the extra workload. A good outplacement process, which has been pre-defined, can take some of the extra work created by restructuring away from you, allowing you to focus on your priorities, whilst ensuring this hugely important area is fully taken care of. 

  • They protect you

Rightly so, our employees have legal rights when it comes to any restructure within a business. It is also essential that their wellbeing is taken into consideration, and they are given all the appropriate information to make their transition as straightforward as possible. An effective outplacement programme ensures that individuals are kept in the loop and provided with all the necessary support to assist in this tough time. 

  • They help your reputation 

Martin Luther King, Jr. said, “The ultimate measure of a person is not where they stand in moments of comfort and convenience, but where they stand at times of challenge.” How you deal with your employees during difficult times will stay with them, even if they don’t stay with you. Your aim should be for everyone who has ever worked for you to feel positive about your business. An effective outplacement programme can help achieve this in adverse conditions. 

  • It’s the right thing to do

Facing redundancy can be an incredibly difficult time for your employees, and we have a responsibility to look after their best interests. The practical and emotional support that a good Outplacement Programme can give your employees can protect their mental wellbeing and provide them with the confidence to approach a job search, which, let’s face it, for employees who have given their commitment to your company, is the right thing to do!

Unfortunately, in testing market times, we can easily forget about the support that we should give to our employees if things are changing in the wider business. Omni Outplacement Support can help by providing you with the tools you and your employees need to make these transitions as smooth and informative as possible.
