When job change happens, it’s important for the affected to adjust quickly and move forward.
At Agilec, we believe that everyone’s job search needs are different, and in order to help individuals develop their full potential the services they require should be customized to their specific needs. Services are tailored to the needs of individuals in the broadest form; from C-Suite Executive positions to frontline roles.
Why Outplacement Services are Important to Employers
There are countless benefits for employers in utilizing Outplacement services to support their terminated employees. Here are some reasons that we think are especially important:
Protect Your Brand And Reputation
Outplacement services help employers protect their brand by demonstrating to existing employees that they care about staff even when they are departing an employee. It’s a competitive world and we know how quickly one unhappy customer can turn into many, the same goes for departing employees. Outplacement services provides employers the opportunity to be proactive in protecting their brand by minimizing the impact of employee damages as a result of termination. When employers provide Outplacement services they demonstrate to their customers and stakeholders that they are brand worth backing.
Termination Is Hard
Outplacements services can reduce stress and emotional impact on all parties including the employer, remaining employees, and departing employee(s). Our professionals offer on-site outplacement assistance and coaching to employers to ensure a safe and secure departure of employees and support for remaining staff.
Terminated Employee Will Find Employment Faster
Outplacement services help reduce the cost of unemployment compensation while helping employers mitigate organization risk of legal claims and not-to-mention helping the departing employee get a new pay check faster.
Improve Your Hiring Influence
You may be departing an employee but chances are you may have a position to fill in the future. Including Outplacement services as part of your benefit package offerings increases your competitive advantage for attracting high-talent employees by becoming a brand that is well-respected in the local market.
Outplacement is not just for large business, it’s for all employers.

Employee meeting support can be provided on an individual or group basis.

Following the termination, the onsite consultant will meet with the terminated employee.
