Outplacement is a highly effective way of dealing with redundancy situations and separation from trusted employees. It is a highly useful tool to add real value to departing employees in a cost effective manner.

BackupHR™ works in tandem with their sister company Workagain. Their outplacement programmes leverage their many years of practical experience in this arena. Above all, it shows every entrant to the jobs market how to maximise on their career chances, and how to stand out from the crowd.

The service can be delivered in three ways:

  1. A completely integrated, on-line three week course delivering one on one and group sessions for all levels of employee.
  2. One on one, highly effective for Senior Managers looking to develop a new career.
