What is outplacement support?

Employee outplacement definition: A positive action that employers can implement to navigate downsizing. Using a third-party provider to help employees being laid off or being made redundant by ensuring they have the best chance of securing a new role elsewhere.

Not only is it a kind service to offer to employees you’re letting go, but it also sends a positive message to existing employees, future employees and the wider market that you’re a caring and responsible employer, willing to go the extra mile to protect its employees.

Protect and enhance your EVP.

So, when your hiring starts again, you’ll have a positive story to tell from your downturn.

What do outplacement services offer?

Now we’ve established the outplacement support meaning, the next question is what do outplacement services do and how does the process work? Our approach is to provide employees with practical advice to give them the confidence boost and guidance they need to navigate an increasingly difficult job market, ensuring they have the best chance possible to get their careers back on track.

The service focuses on 1-1 mentoring and interactive sessions covering 4 key areas including:


‣ How to make their CV stand out

Having a CV that stands out above the rest will give employees a competitive edge in a saturated job-seeking market.

‣ Revamping their digital brand

Revamping their digital brand is a valuable tool that can be fine-tuned to help employees succeed in their job hunt.

‣ Interview prep and execution

Many employees may not have attended an interview for a while, and feeling confident will be vital for re-employment.

‣ How to navigate the job market

Knowing how to use job boards, LinkedIn, and recruitment agencies effectively are key to swift re-employment.

Questions about outplacement services

  • Outplacement assistance is a service offered by career outplacement companies to support businesses and talent teams in the event of employee layoffs. It involves providing CV, interview, career, and other support to outgoing employees to help them in getting re-employed during these difficult events.

  • Not only will redundancies impact the employees you are letting go, but they will also impact the employees who are staying. That’s why outplacement support services help to provide direction and counselling for those you’ve had to let go, whilst reinforcing to existing employees the value, respect and appreciation you have for your people.

    Job outplacement companies also help to relieve some of the pressure for HR departments, which might be stretched due to looking after the people who are staying in the business, or may even have been reduced as part of the redundancy cycle.

  • We started our employee outplacement programmes during the 2020 pandemic, because we’ve placed thousands of amazing candidates worldwide, and we want to ensure we continue to help our candidates in times of need.

    With our excellent outplacement training combined with our experience in the graduate recruitment market, we are able to offer an industry-standard service at a significantly reduced cost in comparison to other top outplacement companies.

    Following outplacement best practices, we will continue to improve and evolve our programmes so that we can offer the best outplacement services in Melbourne.
