Professional Career Transition & Outplacement

Most HR professionals agree that offering career transition services to departing employees is the right thing to do. These services create faster transitions, support vulnerable people during an emotionally difficult time, and help keep your brand in good standing.

Organizations benefit just as much from these services, but these advantages are rarely discussed.

For organizations, Career Transition & Outplacement Services help teams stay productive during a transition, reduce stress for the affected managers and employee’s peers, and mitigate operational risk. These benefits protect your brand and maintain your standing among top talent as an attractive place to work.

At Optimum Talent, the goal of our Career Transition & Outplacement Services is to have both parties feel they’ve improved their situation once the process is complete. We do this by offering solutions that are flexible and by hiring practitioners who genuinely want to help. In doing this, we’re able to achieve great outcomes for everyone involved.

How You Treat Departing Employees Matters to Your Remaining Talent: 48% of organizations surveyed with formal outplacement programs in place have greater than 60% of workers who are highly engaged. (Aberdeen Group, 2011)

It’s Not a Cliché, We Really Do Care

Despite changes in the industry, we remain committed to providing programs that combine technology with the empathy of an expert career coach. This process produces better results for the employer and the departing employee.

Our research shows that human connection is instrumental to a successful career transition. Individuals who receive career transition programs that combine technology with one-on-one coaching—whether it’s delivered in-person, by phone, or online—report higher satisfaction and find opportunities sooner.

Faster landing times mean our clients save money and their brands save face.
