Group Outplacement

Group outplacement is the right solution if your company is about to let go of a large number of employees. We help you organize a socially acceptable separation process, and pave the way for your exiting employees to finding new career prospects – both reliably and successfully.

Group Outplacement – Fair and socially acceptable

Our group outplacement program deploys instruments and methods that are also generally used for the individual consulting of qualified specialists and executives. They are based on a three-step concept comprising orientation, mobilization & qualification and placement.

Orientation involves taking stock of the situation, qualitative assessment and a personalized job market analysis. Mobilization relates to all those elements which help prepare your exiting employees for their placement in new jobs. Targeted qualification can considerably improve the prospects of placing a great many employees. The last stage of our concept is the actual placement itself. Here, we benefit from the long experience and well-founded sector expertise of our specialists, who are familiar with the various ways of accessing the job market.

With our systematic approach, which we have continually optimized over a long period, our clients tend to find new positions in around half the time they would have needed without our consulting services.

The objective is for your employees to quickly find their feet on the job market. Our excellent knowledge of regional job markets and our integration in regional networks put us in an ideal position to contact locally based companies. We effectively help your employees quickly and reliably find the new positions that are right for them.
