We strongly believe that career transitions can be transformative. They have the ability to empower and uplift an employee as they move on towards new experiences. Therefore, we deliver a highly bespoke program that can be customised to fit the unique requirements of every individual. Across various levels and needs.
An unfortunate circumstance of outplacement is that many companies often treat it as a bargaining chip, offering it up as leverage for after the departing staff has agreed to all of the terms of separation. This can have adverse effects on both the employee and the organisation.
For it to be used to its full potential, outplacement services should be provided as as a readily available resource. Companies should implement it as quickly as possible to aid the transitioning employee.
Early access to outplacement support is especially important under circumstances such as:
Airswift’s career transition consultancy team work hand-in-hand with your HR arm to navigate through organisational change and deliver a structured set of services for any level of employee:
Engagement: This involves the initial consultation with a career consultant who specialises in the industry and discipline of the employee
Evaluation: This stage involves a thorough assessment of the employees past and current responsibilities, transferable kills, strengths and weaknesses, goals, behaviors and more.
Preparation: Upon completing the assessment, the career consultant will work with the employee to develop a portfolio of insightful documents and digital profiles. This step includes updating the employee’s resume and their LinkedIn profile.
Guidance: Involves an evaluation of potential companies and positions plus how and why the employee should submit their application. Our consultants can also advise on relevant job portals and aid in creating the required logins.

The individual consultation can take place either face-to-face or video conference. Services during this consultation will include:
Please note that in these cases, Airswift does not assume the role of a recruitment consultant.
As an ongoing effort to ensure that each employee retains the ability to independently explore the job market, our career consultants must remain impartial in order to provide objective guidance during the employee’s job search journey.
Highlighting the value of employee growth is a major motivator during a transitionary period. This is why many outplacement companies focus on providing job coaching services that are tailored to the needs and goals of the employee.
This often comes in tandem with additional resources such as mock interviews, career assessments, salary benchmarking and much more.
Letting go of employees can be a difficult and emotional process affecting multiple layers within an organisation.
Hence, outplacement services are also available to help support HR teams and persons involved in managing the layoffs.
Outplacement services for your organisation might include:
These services can occur in various forms and often include career coaching, job search programs, team training and more.
Outplacement support is a career transition service that is designed to help employees make a successful career change as efficiently as possible in the event of a lay-off or job loss. These services are usually contracted by the employer who is responsible for letting go of the employee.
Good outplacement services focus on helping an employee develop and refine their own personal brand. These services may include counselling or advise sessions that are designed to help employees market themselves upon re-entering the job market.
As some laid-off employees might be unfamiliar with the latest trends in the world of job searching (especially if they’ve been employed by the same company for a long time), these services also sometimes offer job searching techniques.
Not just limited to helping transitioning employees develop resumes and cover letters, outplacement services can also help connect employees with potential job leads.
A growing number of outplacement firms provide interactive online services to save employees the hassle of having to travel to attend their appointments. These sessions can take place over a video conference call, the phone or oven via text.
