Outplacement market trends

Based on our own observations of the last 12 months, we see that:

  • mid-level managers are also offered individual outplacement
  • more and more modern / online tools are being used due to technology advancement
  • the employees’ awareness is greater: instead of being ashamed of being laid-off, they actively ask for support in navigating the job market
  • there’s an increase in the number of employers who tell their employees: “We have a budget of XX, you can choose the service provider yourself”. Sometimes the employer imposes a number of for example 3 companies which fulfill certain requirements. In such situation it is the employee who contacts different companies, has “casting” meetings and then returns with their own choice.
