Outplacement services are increasing in popularity in Ireland. Why? Read the papers. There has been an increase in redundancies and organisations want to support staff through this difficult period.
So why do some organisations offer Outplacement Services and others not?
You can have the arguement that some companies care and others do not. Personally I do not believe this. I feel that it is down to cost or FEAR of cost. When I speak to clients about Outplacement services the initial comments are “I could not afford this” or “Multinational offers redundancy support because they can afford it”. Believe me when I speak to clients about cost this is no longer an issue.
Cost of Outplacement services?
This will depend on a number of variables; the number of staff affected by displacement, the level of the staff, type of programs you want – 1-1 or workshop and your budget. An Outplacement and Redundancy program can be set up to meet your budget – and this is the important point.
