Outplacement & Career Coaching
Our representative meets with the key people involved in the termination to support them in the process. The manager is thoroughly coached on conducting the termination, including techniques to handle it quickly and effectively. Immediately following the termination, each candidate is met with to: (1) assist in handling the emotional impact, and (2) obtain information about the candidate, and (3) explain the outplacement program and support provided by the company.
