The Changing Outplacement Process: New Methods and Opportunities for Transition Management

Synopsis

With downsizing, layoffs, and other retrenchment measures afflicting both public and private sectors, outplacement consulting has grown from a minor specialty among human resources (HR) firms and practitioners into an important industry. Meyer and Shadle explore changes that have occurred in the outplacement process - as well as its practice - to provide a clearer understanding of what it is and what it offers organizations and their employees. Clearly written and designed to assist management and their HR professionals, the book provides not only an insight into the meaning of job loss and its devastating impact on workers and the organization, but a way to help lessen the blow to both.
