Outplacement is a great way to put an amicable end to an otherwise nasty exit. Companies that assist their laid-off employees by giving them the resources they need to find a new job and get hired much faster.
But in this changing world, our job hunting practices have largely evolved.
What is contemporary outplacement, and how does it hold up to the old models? Let’s find out.
The outplacement process back then offered career workshops, office equipment, and job search activities to help people get a job. Not everyone had easy and immediate access to these resources, so having a one-stop-shop that job seekers can go to was a huge relief.
Because of the Internet, most people don’t even have to look at newspapers or go outside to find which company has an opening. Mobile phones, tablets, and computers have made many of us more accessible to prospective companies by going through phone pre-screens and video conference interviews, which became even more relevant since the COVID-19 pandemic.
"How we do outplacement should reflect the way we work today."
The future of outplacement depends on personalized support and technological solutions. By providing high-touch services, job seekers can get the outplacement support they need: one that consoles them as they grieve and coaches them as they strategize. On the other hand, companies can use integrated systems to measure and analyze critical data to translate into actionable outputs.
