Product Details

In today’s uncertain times, organizations are faced with difficult talent decisions. Whether you’re downsizing through a layoff or amid a reorganization, the act of letting talent go is never easy. Often, the decisions to offer outplacement services to an affected employee 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 career coaching and career services coupled with award-winning technology. We pass along savings from efficiencies in technology without compromising quality of service. In fact, our solution is ½ to ⅓ the cost of traditional outplacement solutions.

Mercer’s 100% virtual, on-demand approach for outplacement services helps transitioning employees and displaced employees land a new job nearly 2.5X faster 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 a smart investment because it:

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

But the #1 reason is because “it is the right thing to do” to support an exiting employee.

1 Based on the national average duration of unemployment in 2018 per the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

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.
