According to Forbes.com, America’s 500 largest public companies have laid off approximately 290,000 employees in January and February alone. There doesn’t appear to be an end in sight.

Now, more than ever, outplacement services play an integral role in assisting companies navigate the uneven ground of mass layoffs and downsizings due to these rough economic times. It is a difficult and emotional time for everyone – both employer and employee – and that is why outplacement services are more relevant than ever.

Outplacement and career transition are not new concepts to organizations managing large employee transitions. What is new is the environment the terminated employee must negotiate to find their next position. There are more job seekers than there are job openings. The competition for these fewer jobs is more ferocious—more people better prepared and more motivated than ever to land a job. Today’s job seeker cannot be a casual looker, they not only have to be the best at their craft – they also need to be highly skilled in the craft of finding and capturing the attention of an employer.

Outplacement services smooth the transition for both employer and employee while minimizing stress and helping to maintain the morale of the remaining employees. Career transition services support the employee’s separation from the company while positioning them for success in a new company. Succeeding at finding a new job or making a major career change is hard work and requires expert assistance.
