Outplacement & Career Transition

Most organizations do not have the difficult job of terminating an employee very often, but at Career Consultants we assist an average of 15 to 20 clients every month in planning a termination. Our 35 years of experience are why HR professionals, as well as employment attorneys, turn to us to teach and coach their leaders in the “best practices” of managing a termination skillfully. With more than 1000 Career Coaches globally in 225 locally-owned offices in 28 countries and on 5 continents, we can help!


Traditionally HR Professionals and employment attorneys have defined outplacement services as “helping a person who has been terminated, find a new job”. To us, outplacement has two components:

  • A Complimentary “Best Practices” Leadership Training Component:
    Managing a termination can be a highly emotional event for both the manager and the employee. If not well planned, the termination meeting has the potential to get out of control. We provide our clients two training options, at no cost.

    Six Steps To Planning and Managing The Termination Skillfully.

    • Option 1 -Six Video Training Modules:  Available to HR Professionals, managers conducting the terminations and employment attorneys, these can be viewed on –line, at your leisure. These videos demonstrate specific examples of what managers can expect to face when conducting the termination meeting,  suggested “best practices” responses  and role playing examples that help ensure the event is managed skillfully.
    • Option 2 - Seminars or Coaching: These programs can be conducted at our offices or at yours and range from one to three hours in length.  Your participation in the three hour program is accredited by SHRM as part of your continuing education program.

  • A Personal Career Coach Component:
    Compensation and benefit continuation are the two most important parts of any severance package. The third is providing a Personal Career Coach who will assist the individual and their family deal with the trauma associated with losing their job, help them evaluate career goals and options, and coach them in their job search until they are successfully re-engaged regardless of the difficulty of the search.
