The 2021 
Outplacement Checklist

Not all outplacement is created equal


As you manage the people challenges arising from COVID-19, providing outplacement support is one of the most important decisions you can make for your people and your organisation.

It's a service offered to employees who have lost, or will be losing their job, to help them quickly find a new path.  It’s why leading companies recognise that providing outplacement support to those facing redundancy as a result of business change is an important part of their talent and business transformation strategy.

At LHH, we believe outplacement is no longer just about equipping individuals with the skills to find their next job; it’s about proactively branding and connecting them with their next job so that they transition faster and better. It’s why we’ve invested in and innovated our Active Placement approach.

Read The 2021 Outplacement Checklist to find out the key features you should be asking of your outplacement provider.
