We are in one of the strangest times in American history. The coronavirus pandemic has put the entire country and many countries all across the globe on hold. Millions of people in America have already filed for unemployment, as small business and even many larger corporations are having to cut costs due to the lack of income.

Carter Recruiting and Associates realizes that this is an incredibly unfair time for many hard-working Americans, so that’s why we’re here to tell you about a solution that companies can offer their employees during a layoff or a plant closure.

It’s called outplacement.

Outplacement is a service that our recruiting agency offers to companies for their laid-off workers who are looking to get back on their feet in a field that they love. It takes the stress off of layoff events, and helps workers quickly land a new job. Carter Recruiting and Associates has 20 years of experience helping people make the right decisions when it comes to deciding their professional future.

Outplacement is paid for by your previous employer. Many people ask why businesses would decide to shell out even more money to an employee that will soon no longer be with them, but in fact there are a few key reasons. For one, it shows their current employees that they are still valued and that the company cares about the people who work for them. It sends a strong, professional message to their staff, which pays off in the long run and keeps employees on board for the long haul.

Secondly, it helps the company build a strong reputation in their community and network. Workers want to feel secure, and if a company is known for including outplacement services within their severance package, it really rounds out the package and entices quality workers to apply in the future.

If you have been let go from your job and you’re currently worried about your professional life, speak with your employer about outplacement services and mention us here at Carter Recruiting and Associates. We’d be more than happy to get in touch with them and get you started on getting back into a career that you truly enjoy.
