BW Outplacement Services

Outplacement services help to make the transition experience more positive for employees by shifting their focus on using their skills in future job opportunities. Providing outplacement services with skilled and caring advisors who focus on accelerating the process, enable impacted employees to regain their confidence, focus on the future, and create three important benefits for the employer:

  • It provides an empathetic and compassionate bridge for those affected by layoffs.
  • Positively impacts internal culture and how remaining employees perceive the organizations’ care for fellow employees.
  • Providing services reinforces a positive public relations brand image for the organization.

“Barbara sizes you up instantly, but doesn't judge a book by the muddy water she finds it in.  She knew I was outgoing and mindful as a person, but at the time I dreaded meeting with anyone.  My confidence was shot. So, she started there.   I told her my situation and about 3 mins into my story she said, "What I like to do is get my clients moving as soon as possible."  At this point I'm checking the camera (that is not plugged in) thinking, Does she know I'm still in a robe at 2pm with Oreos stuck to the front lapel? I have met people who are as driven as she is, but not the wonderful balance of caring, firm, and knowledgeable. I don't know what you need. But even if you are not looking for a change, call Barb and get 15 mins.  Everyone could use a "Glenda" guiding them to the yellow brick road.”
