Outplacement is a service offered to employees who are leaving or are in the process of leaving their job, as a way to help them quickly find a new career. This may include a new role in the same or a different industry, retraining, retiring or starting a business. Opportunities include career coaching, CV writing, interview preparation, skill development, referrals to hiring managers and targeted job adverts. The services are paid for by employers, but provided by independent providers who work directly with those who are making a career change.
Providing returners programmes and coaching people back to work puts STEM Returners in an ideal position to run outplacement services for our partner clients. We will support your employees through CV creation, application, interview techniques and preparation as a mentor. We will also try to place all those being made redundant with one of our partner STEM Returner clients, or support them in their other applications.
Choosing supported hire with STEM Returners allows you to tap into a unique talent pool of skilled and ambitious engineers as well as other professionals who may have been left behind by outdated recruitment methods.
Supporting this programme will benefit businesses in the following ways:
- Supporting employees directly impacted by redundancy allows for a smoother transition for both the company and employee.
- Helping employees with career transition methods ensures a positive relationship after the cessation of employment.
- Outplacement helps to keep current employees morale high, knowing that they would receive support should their employment end.
