Outplacement Tools Are Expected, Critical

A new research report on current perspectives in career transition says that there exists an expectation and critical role for online tools in the outplacement process.

The report is based on a survey of C-level and human resource executives and offers first-of-its-kind insights into the previously understudied career transition industry.

The majority of the executives (67 percent) expect online self-service tools to be a component of outplacement and that they are critical to the success of the outgoing employee. Furthermore, online self-service tools are considered most effective and highly beneficial when used to complement high-touch services such as one-on-one coaching. The higher-ranked online tools include networking tools, targeted job leads and company research tools.

The report shows 93 percent of surveyed executives believe career transition services bring value to exiting employees and the organizations providing the services, while 74 percent of executive respondents say their company provides career transition services to exiting employees as part of its company policy.

Of the surveyed respondents, 56 percent indicate that career transition services are “very important,” while 24 percent indicate they are “important” — demonstrating the significance of career transition services and the expectation of its provision.
