Why care for your departing employees and offer Career Transition services (a.k.a. Outplacement)

Departing employees and how they speak of your business can have a significant impact on your product/services brand, and on your employer brand. We are still to see the magnitude of the economic impact of the Covid-19 pandemics. The number of layoffs in Europe show projections for an economic crisis which is times higher than the one we experienced in 2008/2009, and the years to follow.
The majority of people who are downsized remain in the industry. They will continue to maintain relationships with your vendors, customers, partners and the local community. They will probably be hired by one of your competitors, or by one of your key clients/suppliers. They will continue to maintain contact with your current employees. They will continue to attend industry events.

The way you treat them in this vulnerable moment during layoff, and the support you offer them - not only in terms of severance pay, but also as an opportunity to work with a certified career coach - could make a big impact on your Employer Brand, on the employees who stay with you, and on the success of your future recruitment campaigns. After all, your company is here to stay. And it will survive in one form or another this crisis. The way you handle it could be your competitive position vs other employers when we will (again) compete for talent.

If your business hasn’t been developing its digital communications, the coronavirus outbreak will have made this a near-term necessity.
