Zero Cost Career Planning, Job Search, and Interview Support for the Unemployed

SAN DIEGO, CA, April 25, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ — We may not think about unemployment a lot during good economic times, but the problem is bigger than most people think.

Each month, according to the US Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics, there are over five million total separations. Layoffs and discharges alone run around 1.7 million per month and the average duration of unemployment is slightly over 20 weeks. The emotional and economic strain on those affected can be devastating.

Making a Difference in Peoples’ Lives

Helping people get and stay employed is socially and economically beneficial; and not just for the unemployed. Employers, and society as a whole also benefit. Employers, for example, save money on unemployment compensation costs, and society benefits from a more stable workforce and economy.

Outplacement and transition services, which are designed to help displaced employees get reemployed, have been around for a long time. While valuable, they tend to be an underused and episodic benefit triggered by employer-initiated reductions in staff. They are also fairly expensive. This leaves a huge number of unemployed to fend for themselves.

A New Approach – Bringing Outplacement to the Masses

A new form of outplacement called ultra-outplacement, overcomes these limitations. It brings outplacement to the masses at little or no cost. By eliminating cost as a barrier, there are literally hundreds of uses for outplacement and transition services. It can even augment traditional outplacement programs that have coverage gaps due to eligibility or cost constraints.

Ultra-Outplacement – Defining Characteristics

• Ultra-ownership — Can be provided directly through employers or any HR service provider
• Ultra-coverage — 100% workforce coverage regardless of position, reason for separation, or any other factor
• Ultra-applicability — Use any time, for anyone, and for any purpose … 100’s of uses
• Ultra-control — The organization decides who, what, when, where, why, and how it’s used
• Ultra-flexibility — Self- and full-service, generic, branded, custom capabilities
• Ultra-easy — Cloud/web-based, on-demand 24/7/365, subscription option
• Ultra-low cost — Lowest cost model (can even be zero cost for self-service plans)

Offering zero cost ultra-outplacement services has become a “no-brainer” decision for any organization whose mission includes helping people get and stay employed.

This is good news for the unemployed. Now, any employer or HR service provider, including payroll companies, PEOs, benefits firms, staffing firms, military veteran support organizations, social service agencies, and the like, can provide outplacement and transition services to those in need. The unemployed, employers, those supported by HR service providers, and society as a whole, are the beneficiaries.
