When companies restructure and lay off valued team members, providing outplacement services and support is critical.

It’s important for businesses to offer support to employees who, through no fault of their own, have suffered job loss. There are many benefits of outplacement services and it has been proven to limit risk to business, in particular the reliance of exiting team members on human resources and legal personnel which allows companies to focus on the future of the business.

Engaging exiting employees in a program that is inspiring, future-focused and one that normalizes job loss as the result of restructuring benefits everyone. The First 30 outplacement program motivates participants to consider what’s ahead, find meaningful employment quickly, learn new skills and take control of their careers.

When we suffer a job loss it affects our wellbeing. It impacts us deeply for practical reasons like concern about financial security, but also because we’ve lost control of our outcome and because we typically take the experience of job loss personally. The First 30 outplacement program provides advice and guidance in order to build confidence in participants’ ability to find alternative meaningful employment. The program also normalizes and depersonalizes the experience of job loss as the result of restructuring.  First 30 is thoughtfully designed to put the control back into the hands of the affected employee.
