PROVIDE PROGRAMS TO
YOUR EMPLOYEES QUICKLY AND EASILY
What Services Can You Offer Your Separated Employees?
Here’s what you can (and should) expect an outplacement provider to offer your separated workers:
- Professional resume writing and cover letter writing
- Personal, one-on-one career transition consultations
- Help establishing an online presence for job search
- Optimization of resumes for automated resume screening process
- Online resume and cover letter posting
- Personalized salary reports
- Individual job seeker support with 1:1 career coach time (as opposed to group seminars)
- 24/7 remote online job search support
With Quest, your impacted workers will receive all of the services listed above and more.
Sometimes an outplacement firm will provide departing employees with office space and office equipment for job search. Although useful in the past, these services are costly and unnecessary in today’s world.
In today’s job market, most of the job search process (and hiring process) is done completely online.
Modern outplacement companies now focus more on the internet side of the job search. The best providers will offer personal, one-on-one career coaching to your impacted workers in lieu of office space and equipment.
It’s important to look into exactly what services a provider offers before entering into a contract with them.
What Do Outplacement Services Cost?
It is surprisingly difficult to find accurate information on how much outplacement services cost. Most companies don’t publish their prices online.
The reason for this is that their pricing can vary by customer, and can involve haggling with a salesperson, like the old-school approach to purchasing a car from a car dealer.
Quest is different. We are transparent and upfront about how much our outplacement services cost.
Our programs range from $995 to $2,495 per exiting employee and range in duration from 3 to 6 months.
We will never haggle with you on pricing, and your company will only be charged for those individuals who register for services.
If an individual does not register for services, your company will not be charged for that individual.
Challenges Facing Job Seekers
Automated resume screening is now used as a first pass for screening out job candidates, quickly eliminating those who don’t fit the bill.
With automated resume screening software, a job seeker’s resume isn’t even looked at by a human resources or a hiring manager before it’s eliminated from consideration.
Moreover, the internet has removed the job seeker’s need for office space and equipment. Now, the advantage goes to the job seeker who receives personal, one-on-one career coaching assistance over the internet.
Job seekers who aren’t prepared for automated resume screening or who don’t receive the benefits of one-on-one career consulting will struggle with their job search.
Did You Know?
A Journal of Employment Counseling study found that the longer outplacement services are provided after a layoff, the more likely a job seeker’s new salary will be higher than their previous salary. All of our programs offer a minimum of 3 months of support.
Career Transition Support Approach – The Old vs The New
In the past, outplacement services provided job seekers with office space, computers, telephones, printers, and other equipment to assist them in their job search.
Group seminars also played a vital role in the past.
But things have changed….
To give separated employees maximum value and support, providers must constantly adapt to modern job search and hiring processes.
Now that most job searches are done online, career transition services have shifted away from providing office space and onsite group classes. The focus is now on online support and personal career consultations.
The best outplacement companies also provide resume writing services. Not all firms are able to offer this level of personalized support, with some requiring job seekers to write their own resumes through use of an online tool.
Our Approach to Career Transition Support
We are an established firm that has specialized in providing affordable employee outplacement services for over 20 years.
At Quest, we have developed a hybrid approach to assistance that combines one-on-one outplacement consultant support with virtual tools to provide location-independent services.
Our approach enables us to provide comprehensive programs that include one-on-one career coaching support at a more affordable price point than those offered by traditional brick-and-mortar based higher-overhead agencies like Drake Beam Morin (DBM) and Lee Hecht Harrison (LHH).
We offer 4 programs starting at $995 USD per exiting employee.
The DiscoveryQuest™ Career Mapping Process
We have two program options—the DiscoveryQuest 3 program and the DiscoveryQuest 6 program—to address the needs of exiting professionals, managers, and executives.
The DiscoveryQuest 3 program is recommended for managers and professionals. The DiscoveryQuest 6 program is recommended for directors, VPs, and C-Suite executives.
Both programs feature our new DiscoveryQuest™ Career Mapping Process, a comprehensive process that incorporates a high-touch personalized approach which includes:
- In-depth review of a job seeker’s existing resume as well as their responses to questions about their target position
- A phone call with a Career Transition Consultant to discuss career goals and determine a career strategy plan
- Development of a personalized discovery document that includes questions customized to the job seeker’s specific target position
- Creation of a custom resume that includes new content gained from the DiscoveryQuest™ process
