In today’s hot business climate, layoffs are not a common topic. However, any Florida business should be prepared for organizational changes in the face of increasing competition and rising customer expectations. Sometimes change causes a layoff or downsizing event. Tampa Bay area companies can make transitioning easier for their laid-off employees by adding outplacement services as part of a severance package. The goodwill generated by outplacement programs may also offer some protection from employment lawsuits or unfavorable online company reviews, as well as preserve the company’s brand and reputation in the community.
What are outplacement services? Outplacement is a service offered by employers (at no cost to the employee) through a third party provider, like Consultstu LLC. The services are typically offered to help employees impacted by workforce restructuring or layoff. Outplacement can also be offered to an employee that is unable to successfully grow their role with the company, or meet the changing needs of their position.
Our local, personally delivered outplacement services are available to companies in Tampa, St. Petersburg, Clearwater, Sarasota, Bradenton, Orlando and Lakeland.
