four reasons to consider outplacement services
By: Cheryl Church - director, search division
Outplacement services, also known as career transition services, are coaching programs that help separated employees land their next position faster. Here’s four quick reasons to consider offering outplacement services.

Increases Loyalty and Satisfaction of Current Employers
Layoffs, workforce reductions and other types of terminations can have a negative impact on the morale and productivity of the remaining staff. Offering outplacement services to the terminated employees is a great way to show the remaining employees that they are valued and that their employer cares about them. 

Protects Your Reputation
A company's reputation is extremely important these days. Outplacement reinforces a positive view of the organization by the staff and community. Offering outplacement promotes a great business reputation, demonstrate your company’s commitment to employees, and highlights your ability to provide the solutions job seekers need, such as access to networking connections and job boards.

Supports Corporate Values
What do your core values say about the importance of your staff? Providing outplacement services demonstrates that the company’s core values aren’t just cliches.

Helps the Employee Find a New Job Quicker
A layoff can be devastating for an employee. Not only is it a loss of income but it can be a loss of identity and community. Added to that, worrying about what to do next can feel overwhelming. Including outplacement services can help workers take a step forward in the next chapter of their careers and allow them to focus on the future.
The benefits of outplacement far outweigh the cost of implementing a quality program. Sometimes it’s inevitable; companies are left with a tough decision to terminate some of their workers. And let’s be honest, letting workers go can be tough for managers, too. Take this step to make layoffs as positive an experience as possible for all involved.

Skills assessment tests provide a lot of value to employers by providing a way to gauge the abilities and skills of both current employees and job applicants. Assessments can offer valuable insight into the hiring process by eliminating job candidates that may be under-qualified for a position, even if their resume says otherwise. In addition, it can also identify employees that may be better suited for another role or a promotion.
