Endeavor Agency recently helped a downsized employee who was not happy with outplacement services offered by her previous employer.
“It was a waste of my time,” she said. “I don’t know why they bothered spending money on those services. It was just one more insult.”
It’s never a joy to go through a downsizing. This client was laid off as part of a large restructuring where hundreds of her colleagues got the same bad news. The company hired an outplacement firm to help employees transition. Big brand. Recognizable name. Unfortunately, the employer chose a low cost plan and their efforts to provide help backfired.
RUDIMENTARY OUTPLACEMENT SERVICES
“It was very impersonal,” she began. “The first person I spoke with seemed nice, but the guidance was all very basic. It was a different person each time I called. Then, they kept trying to shuffle me off to their online platform versus spending any time helping me. I wanted more direct human interaction and guidance instead of an online system or information that I could find with a Google™ search.”
Endeavor helped her land a new job through our one-on-one personalized services, including interview training and a LinkedIn™ profile review. Then, she referred several of her former colleagues who had the same experience with the impersonal outplacement services firm.
