In today’s uncertain times, organizations are faced with difficult talent decisions. Whether you’re downsizing or in the midst of a business transformation, the act of letting talent go is never easy. Often times, the decisions to offer employees outplacement services is overlooked or considered unaffordable — until now.

What sets Mercer apart from other providers is our ability to provide a full-service outplacement solution that utilizes experienced virtual coaching and support services coupled with award-winning technology. We pass along savings from efficiencies in technology without compromising quality of service.

Mercer’s 100% virtual, on demand approach for outplacement services helps transitioning employees land a new job nearly 3X fast than the national average1. We are redefining outplacement design, delivery, and results to provide a service that meets the expectations of employers as well as the needs of all levels of employees. Outplacement is an important investment.

  • It increases the likelihood of rehiring once laid-off employees.
  • It protects your company’s brand and reputation following a reduction in force (RIF).
  • It mitigates the risk of litigation.
  • It has cost savings implications related to severance.

But the #1 reason is because “it is the right thing to do.”

Are you ready to modernize your approach to employee outplacement?

Mercer's outplacement was perfect, convenient, and easy. My dedicated coach was instrumental in my job search. I landed an even better job than my last in just under three months. Now I work for a Fortune 500 company with amazing benefits and am located closer to home.

Offering outplacement services to all employees means you are not only helping people get jobs faster, but showing the talent you still employ that you care about your people. Your brand as an employer matters – to your former employees, to your current employees, and to your future employees.

According to Intoo, almost 40% of laid off and terminated employees give their former employers a negative review on company sites like Glassdoor, reviews that hurt corporate brand and reputation. Building a good brand means treating employees well throughout their entire relationship with you.
