Desirable Options When an Employee Isn’t Working Out …

This week I spoke with Erin Hamilton, the founder of  MOGL Small Business Services.  MOGL helps the owners of growing, small and medium-sized businesses with business development, operations, and systems.  We spoke about my take on pre-outplacement services. Basically, outplacement is career coaching that is paid for by a former employer when an employee is (or will be) let go. My approach to pre-outplacement is different because it is based on career psychology. It’s also different because of the context in which I’ve offered it.

 

Erin shared a snapshot of our discussion in a “30-second learning” article.

In a future post, I’ll describe my take on Outplacement v2.0 or “Right-Placement” in more detail.

 

In the meantime, please contact me by email, phone, or via direct message on Twitter, Facebook, or LinkedIn if you’d like to discuss outplacement, careers, or other HR-related topics in more detail.

 

More than career coaching, it’s career psychology®.
