Markets change, develop and consolidate, invariably driven by increasingly demanding customers, shareholders and institutions.

Today, change is the constant and Employers must react in their planning, strategies and human resources policies and practices.

Often, this results in re-shaping of the organisation with the almost inevitable need to focus on people and their performance and overall 'fit' in the new business.

For those casualties of this change, outplacement is the most obvious solution and it casts the Employer in a professional light, with a duty of care to assist employees in the process of career transition.

Change is also about opportunity - although this may be difficult for someone who has been informed that their position no longer features in the organisation.

Outplacement provides support, guidance, direction and clarity, thereby offering fresh momentum at a time of uncertainty.
