Outplacement Approaches: The Blended Approach

There are many outplacement approaches out there that firms may take to get participants back to work in a new, meaningful role. The two most popular approaches can simply be boiled down to a people-focused approach and a technology-focused approach. 

A people-focused approach consists mainly of coaching and networking. This approach stems from the traditional outplacement process which was done in-person, typically in a group setting inside the offices of the outplacement provider. 

The second approach relies on technology to aid participants in landing their next role. Newer virtual outplacement providers typically provide a platform for participants to use on their own terms. eLearning, virtual webinars, and social networking are hallmarks of this approach. 

As you can see, both of these approaches have their pros and cons. The best approach is to blend them together to create a people-focused, tech-driven approach to outplacement. This is exactly what we’ve done at Careerminds. 

Using the powers of the internet and dedicated, one-on-one coaches, our participants get the best of both worlds. They are provided coaching that is personalized, flexible, and extremely easy to receive at any time thanks to increases in communication software over the years. Our outplacement platform connects fellow job seekers, a coaching staff, previous participants, and much more, including eLearning tools and webinar events. 

Our blended approach using technology to bring people together, establish a coach-participant bond, and gets participants back to work on their terms.
