What is outplacement?
Outplacement literally means "to set out" an employee to another company. Although this does not sound particularly positive, the result can be positive by using a professional career choice questionnaire. Because employers do not perform outplacement processes themselves for many reasons, the employer will deploy a specialist for this. An outplacement specialist prepares laid-off employees for careers at a new company.
What does an outplacement process look like?
An outplacement process is usually done during working hours. It starts with an (online) assessment: what can the candidate do and what does the candidate want to do? In this phase of the outplacement, a professional career choice questionnaire is used. Immediately after a career choice questionnaire, the candidate will receive the career choice report. This is often followed up by a conversation with an outplacement specialist.
The outplacement specialist will then explain to the candidate the results of the career choice questionnaire. On many occasions, the questionnaire does not recommend just one suitable profession, but multiple suitable professions. Many organizations use a professional career choice questionnaire, such as The Bridge Career.
