GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., May 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Despite a steadily recovering economy, employee turnover remains a challenge that many companies may still face. Terminations, layoffs and business re-organizations will inevitably shuffle some employees out the door. Helping to make that process efficient for all parties is Vertical Media Solutions (https://www.vmsolu.com/), a respected provider of resume and CV writing services. The company's outplacement and career transition services assist HR departments in the tough task of finding suitable new placements for terminated and laid-off employees.
"Reputation matters more than ever in the business world, thanks in part to the growth of social media. Poorly handled layoffs or seemingly unfair terminations can cast an organization in a harsh light that's tough to escape," explains Joel Marotti, senior managing partner of Vertical Media Solutions. "Outplacement services can mitigate the fallout from reductions in the workforce, improving the morale of remaining workers and preserving a positive corporate image."
According to the Wall Street Journal's analysis of the most recent jobs report, unemployment numbers have hit a 10-year low, which is mostly good news; however, if one does become unemployed, a tight labor market could make it harder to quickly find a new job. That's because, in a manner of speaking, the chairs are already full. When the market is tight, employers can generally be more discriminating in their hiring, too. Rapidly emerging technological advances (AI, automation, etc.) may only make the road tougher for job seekers.
Outplacement and career transition services from Vertical Media Solutions include recruiting, career coaching and resume writing for displaced employees. The mission is not simply to find a new job for former employees, but to find a position that's a great match and helps individuals move their careers forward. Many HR departments take on the task of transitioning employees internally, but they may lack the resources, time and expertise to achieve ideal outcomes.
Small businesses and global enterprises alike can benefit from professional outplacement services. "Doing right" by former employees enhances a company's image and demonstrates a strong sense of corporate responsibility. Employees who survive a round of layoffs often suffer stress and other negative emotions. Knowing that in the event their job ends they will be well taken care of provides invaluable peace of mind. Vertical Media Solutions' clients have seen morale, retention and productivity increase after deploying outplacement and career transition services. And despite misconceptions, outplacements services are helpful not only for large layoffs, but also when letting just one or two workers go.
From a financial perspective, outplacement services are good for the bottom line. Traditionally, these services have fallen on the shoulders of HR departments, stretching their resources to the limit. Getting former employees into new positions quickly reduces insurance and other severance expenses. Vertical Media Solutions' services also provide a corporate tax write-off.
For 10 years, Vertical Media Solutions has been providing professional-level resume/CV and career counseling expertise, including interview preparation and LinkedIn profile writing, to individuals around the country. The company's outplacement and career transition services are an extension of the respected services already offered to professionals.
