Everything You Need to Know about Outplacement but Haven’t Had Time to Ask

NELA SHRM is a community that prides itself on taking care of each other. It’s what we do and who we are. As Human Resource professionals, you bring this culture of care into the workplace and there is no better time to take care of your team members than during times of organizational change. As the critical HUMAN extension of your organization, you have invested in the success of your employee’s and know that this extends to every phase of their employment.

This workshop will focus on how to communicate to leadership that outplacement is a service that matters and lessens the burden before, during and after workforce transformations by providing a solution that delivers piece of mind and a high ROI. During this session you will learn:

  • How to navigate organizational change and provide a service/benefit that matters – all while maintaining your company’s culture, elevating employer branding, preserving the productivity and engagement of remaining employees and reducing legal exposure
  • The strategic role Outplacement plays as part of a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Talent Mobility initiative to create a ‘culture of care’ and make you the employer of choice in the community you serve
  • Questions to ask when selecting an Outplacement and Career Transition Firm to show you care about your outbound employees and their ability to move forward (Bonus: Link included to a Comprehensive Criteria Checklist)
  • How to communicate with leadership that Outplacement can fit into even the tightest of budgets and that investing in the success of your outbound employees with professional outplacement services is the right thing to do during this current crisis
