When companies and organizations are facing the difficult need to implement a Reduction In Force, we create comprehensive, customized outplacement solutions that support organizational leadership and benefit displaced employees. Our coaches conduct compassionate, individual career transition programs for each enrolled employee.
Engaging PDS’ committed, compassionate and expert Outplacement Services for departing employees fosters goodwill and serves to minimize potential lawsuits and negative social media that can result when an employee feels that he or she is not being treated fairly. This is an important aspect of reputation management. Providing services for departing employees additionally bolsters remaining employees’ morale and supports employee retention.
We coach, support and guide clients in career transition to conquer their fears, define and communicate their brand value, and effectively engage in a full-on job search both online and offline to re-ignite their careers. With informed expertise, compassionate and directive guidance, clients gain the life-long advantage of knowing how to position themselves within the marketplace to realize their personal career goals.
