Beyond Outplacement,...the emotional side of downsizing.

My good friend and colleague from Chicago Business Network is leading this INSPIRING program!....

The program, Beyond Outplacement, was created to help people and organizations deal with the emotional side of downsizing. Unfortunately in today’s environment layoffs are happening all too often. This interactive program is designed to help shift the mindset of those that are leaving as well as those that are staying, and allow those individuals to approach the change from a very positive perspective rather than one based on fear. As we all know change can be difficult. This program is intended to help people experience the change more easily.

Beyond Outplacement Program

When your company downsizes, for whatever reason, valuable employees find themselves in a precarious position. General uncertainty, cautious performance and tentative actions result.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if you, the employer, could do something to take of care of dedicated employees? Now you can. With ILP’s Beyond Outplacement Program you can provide them with the tools, techniques and support to:

  • Shift their mindset and consider perspectives that will serve them regarding the upcoming change
  • Uncover their dreams, passions and visions that may be lost during this time in their lives
  • Identify a working list of their transferrable skills
  • Network socially and formally

Your company will receive the benefit of:

  • Former employees who are better equipped to move forward professionally
  • A reputation of taking care of those who have worked for you
  • Current employees who will continue to be dedicated to their work
  • Current employees who see how much you value employees
  • A cadre of people who could come back to you when business improves

Downsizing, laying off employees, is never easy…..but with the ILP Beyond Outplacement Program there are ways to improve the outcome of the situation.
