People who have not been looking for a new job for a long time often face problems related to re-entering this stage.

Workshops on preparing employees for an interview include, among others exercises, career transition coaching, boost employee morale, resume writing, simulations of job interviews, and preparation of answers to frequently asked questions. People involved in the training cope better with “real” conversations.

The outplacement program can last from several weeks to several months. We start our activities as early as during the notice period, in order to increase the chances of finding a new job before the end of the employment relationship with the current employer.

This is because the outplacement firm guarantees the elimination company’s poor employee treatment, giving job search advice dla job seekers.

For your brand to be considered ethical and trustworthy, it must treat its employees well. Downsizing can shake a company’s good image.

A soft layoff procedure and outplacement services make it easier for all parties to get through this challenging period and allow a quicker reorganization of working life.
