Services for Terminated Executives
When companies downsize, people who see their careers vanish are
often put into emotionally difficult and financially
inconvenient circumstances. The situation can be traumatic and
disturbing for both displaced employees and employees who keep
Outplacement services ensure that morale of remaining staff is
maintained by demonstrating concern for those leaving. As well,
the employer's image in the community and industry is preserved
-- an important factor in Asia. Wasteful legal actions that are
always more destructive to the ex-employee than the former
employer can also be avoided or tempered when credible job
search services are provided.
Most outplacement programs include variations on 4 basic steps:
1. Create an Individualized Career
Senior partners of the outplacement firm
meet with displaced employees personally to learn about their background and desires for future activities. Their job
related skills, strengths and weaknesses will be assessed and
career and personal goals will be discussed. The displaced
employees are assisted to create a career plan in order that
achievable professional goals can be established.
2. Build a Career Marketing
It is important that proper documents be created and collected
that will substantiate people's past achievements. The
outplacement firm should make guidance on creating a management
resume that is understandable, complete and written in a manner
that is compelling and marketable.
3. Interviewing and Job Search
Senior managers are generally stable in their
career and change jobs rarely. It is understandable, therefore,
that most people's interviewing skills can be improved upon. The
senior partners of the outplacement firm should prepare the
participants for the toughest management cross-examinations and
make suggestions for improvement. People will also be made aware
of all of the methods and sources available to reach potential
4. Target and Approach Employers
To be credible, outplacement firms should be
active in senior level recruitment and have strong personal
relationships with executive hiring managers. They need to be a
proactive partner in job searches and make personal endorsements
to potential hiring organizations. Otherwise, the service risks
being nothing more than a glorified resume writing service. Firms also need to
be able to provide business intelligence information to
Conflicts of Interest
It is usual that outplacement participants are highly skilled
managers with many years of experience. As such, it is not
uncommon that some of these people have immediate marketable
value with hiring organizations. To solicit placement fees for
such people is a conflict of interest and could limit their
possibility of obtaining new employment. Outplacement firms
should never accept fees from potential employers.
