Outplacement is a situation in the corporate world where coaching proves particularly essential. Outplacement occurs when businesses go through a restructuring phase. In such a situation, which is often difficult for both management and the employees concerned, there is a requirement for specific support.
What outplacement brings to a business
By offering the chance of a quick transition to employees leaving the company, a company can show its consideration toward its employees. In the short, medium, and long term, the effects of outplacement for the company are numerous:
Outplacement preserves commitment and morale among the remaining employees. It protects productivity. It prevents frustration, fear, and anxiety among those who are leaving and those who remain. It reduces the risk of litigation. It maintains positive relationships between the company and its former and current employees. It also preserves the company’s reputation as a “good employer” among future applicants.
Outplacement enhances the “global employment brand” and the company’s reputation.
