Mercer Workforce Transition

Putting jobs first to help employees get back to work 3X faster

Mercer Workforce Transition SKU_496

Voluntary and involuntary turnover totals 15% of a company’s employee population on average today, making an outplacement solution that helps people effectively transition into new roles important. Employers want an outplacement solution that provides a virtual career center, social network integration and sends jobs via alerts to job seekers, supported by one-on-one coaching. Employees facing a career transition want the same things.

Mercer’s virtual, on demand approach helps transitioning employees land a new job nearly 3x 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 an important investment.

  • It increases the likelihood of rehiring once laid-off employees.
  • It protects the company’s brand and reputation.
  • 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 for the most complete career transition program available?

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.

Offering workforce transition 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 Glassdoor, 69% of people would not take a job with a company that had a bad reputation, even if they were unemployed.
