Outplacement Consulting with ARTS

In outplacement support, employees affected by staff reductions work out new perspectives together with neutral, external experts and coaches. This is also a protected space for processing the various emotions in the separation process. Especially if the requirements of the previous job have changed considerably, it may not be enough to diligently write applications for a new job. In this case, outplacement counselling helps to develop a new career perspective including an application strategy.

Outplacement training for managers

Seminar "Employer Interview Techniques"

Annual reviews, salary negotiations and disciplinary meetings are stressful for many managers. Finding the right tone and words, and responding appropriately and sensitively to emotions, can be challenging. 

Knowing the basics of communication and being well prepared can help you approach feedback meetings in a more relaxed way.

Seminar "Employee Exit Interviews"

The aim of a separation should always be for managers and former employees to be able to look each other in the eye later on. To achieve this, the way in which employees are treated during the separation process and the way in which they are bid farewell is crucial.

If the process is characterised by fairness and appreciation, anger and negative consequences on both sides will be minimised.

Leadership Coaching

Leadership style is one of the success factors for a productive corporate culture. Appraisals are often discussed in management development seminars, but in day-to-day management it is difficult to implement the desired leadership behaviour.

This is where executive coaching comes in as the most effective tool for advising managers.

Frequently asked questions about outplacement consulting


What is outplacement?

Outplacement counselling is a professional service offered by companies to help departing employees to find a new job or a new career. This type of support is often offered in the context of redundancy, reorganisation or other work-related separation processes. The aim of outplacement counselling is to make the transition as smooth and positive as possible for those affected.

The key aspects of outplacement services are:

  1. Career counselling: our HR consultants will help your redundant employees to identify their career goals and skills in order to explore suitable new job opportunities.
  2. Application preparation: Our experienced recruiters can help you prepare strong CVs, cover letters and other application documents that highlight the candidate's strengths and qualifications.
  3. Interview preparation: ARTS trainers and coaches help you prepare for interviews to increase the chances of successful hiring of your current employees.
  4. Networking strategies: We advise your colleagues on how to use professional networks and platforms such as LinkedIn to tap into hidden job markets and connect with potential employers.
  5. Psychological support: We focus on providing your employees with emotional support and counselling to reduce the stress of job loss and to help them look positively to the future.

Outplacement counselling not only demonstrates a company's social responsibility to its employees, but also enhances the company's image by showing that it supports its employees even in difficult times. This service promotes a positive perception of the company both internally and externally and can have a positive impact on future recruitment and ret

How is outplacement success measured?

In general, the aim of outplacement counselling is to achieve an 'end without horror', so that all parties involved can look to the future with renewed strength after a professional separation. One criterion for success is therefore the avoidance of protracted and exhausting legal disputes. For employees, the most important success is, of course, to find a new job as soon as possible - one that may even be more fulfilling than the previous one? Ideally, the separation should be perceived as fair by all parties, so that the rating on employer review sites such as kununu or Glassdoor is positive and the separation process does not have a negative impact on your employer brand.
