Outplacement Solutions

Layoffs are not fun for anyone. Although crucial to an organization’s survival, restructuring can lead to discomfort and anxiety for managers, human resources, and employees who stay with the company. For the downsized employee, this life altering experience soon degenerates into fear and an uncertain future.

What can you do to show departing workers that you care to help them leave with less pain and resentment? What is the right thing to do to help them transition into their next jobs as quickly and effortlessly as possible?

Abilities Enhanced® provides affordable outplacement services. We create customized packages of career related services that are delivered to recipients at your company site, off-site, or through teleconference classes and one-on-one career coaching by phone. Service offerings include career transition coaching, preparation of all career marketing materials, and job search management assistance. Employees will leave with the right attitudes to begin job searches. Their anxiety and fear will be minimized.
