SAINT LOUIS- April 2, 2012: IMPACT Group, a WBE-global career management firm, released today a white paper titled, “5 Outplacement Lessons in 140 Characters or Less” providing useful advice and tactics on how to properly support employees in career transition.
The white paper is designed to quickly provide pertinent lessons on how to:
- Support HR, with useful advice for handling the often difficult and uncomfortable notification process (notification checklist included within the report).
- Prepare for tough decisions ahead by knowing where, when and how to deliver the news to affected employees.
- Clearly understand why providing the right benefits and support will not only help your employees move on to their next careers faster, but will help boost internal morale and your public corporate image.
- Prepare those who survived the workforce cutbacks with talent management strategies to keep them productive and engaged, not wondering if they will be ‘next.’
“In our uncertain economic times, too many in the workforce have been a part of or witnessed layoffs and downsizing,” said Lauren Herring, President and CEO of IMPACT Group. “Even as we see our economy and job markets improving, downsizing and rightsizing due to mergers and acquisitions and/or restructuring are still quite common, and inevitably, some people are terminated. Most senior managers understand the benefits of outplacement support, but it is important for those who are in the position of delivering the news to be fully aware of the best approach to make the transition easier for both parties.”
