Career Transition & Outplacement

Help transitioning employees succeed and keep those who stay engaged

Restructuring is never easy

You’ve perfected the art of employee onboarding —but the way you say goodbye is just as important. Getting it right isn't just better for the people leaving—it’s better for the team left behind. It will even boost your reputation in the wider world.

Your people know that organizations are constantly restructuring and transformations happen, often shifting or eliminating roles. If you’re open and let your employees know how you will support them through their career transitions, even redundancies can become opportunities—for them and you.

We help parting colleagues make a fresh start faster. Our career transition services cover personal assessments, coaching, upskilling courses, branding, interview preparation and even onboarding once they land their new job. We tailor it to your people and put it all in one platform.

But the thing that really sets us apart from other outplacement services is our experience in talent acquisition and supporting people with their careers. We work with tens of thousands of companies globally—connections we call on to introduce your leaving employees to the best hiring managers for them.

So, they find new work faster and can serve as an advocate for their former employment experience at your company. Just as importantly, the employees who stay will have a greater sense of job security and loyalty, driving higher productivity and retention.

We make change happen

We use all our connections combined with personalized training and coaching to help every parting employee make their next move faster. And, because all our tools are on one, integrated platform, you can use them in one office or many, wherever you are in the world.

Help everyone, at every level (not just executives)

We offer personalized, one-to-one service for all your employees—from entry level to executives. Our connections to talent teams at tens of thousands of companies means we connect displaced employees to available roles at a breadth and scale that our competitors can’t match.

Cut time to placement to land the dream job

With Korn Ferry career transition services, 92% of laid-off employees found a job better than or equal to the one they left. Placing people faster means better PR too, as parting employees leave feeling positive about the opportunities you’ve given them.

Give one-on-one coaching

We don’t substitute technology and electronic delivery programs for human contact. Our coaches are here to talk with your employees as often as they need — it takes just three clicks for them to book an appointment.

Provide redeployment alternatives

Just because you have removed roles in one part of your business, that does not mean you cannot utilize your employees in other valuable roles at the organization. We help you look at where you might be able to fit in displaced employees, making new and different career opportunities possible.

Help for long as they need us

Our goal is to restore your employees’ well-being — financial, mental and physical wellness, all of which are impacted by a change in career path. We help your employees reskill and upskill, with over 3,000 courses and leadership workshops, so they have the edge in interviews and shine throughout their careers. Employees also get indefinite access to our online career management site for as long as they like, helping to position them for job growth over time.
