Individual Outplacement

Helping your senior executives, managers and professionals make their next move

Our individual outplacement support services help you sensitively handle the departure of one or more individuals so that you can maintain staff motivation, loyalty and business as usual throughout, bringing crucial stability at a time of change.

If you have a large number of employees leaving your organisation, group outplacement may suit you better.

Flexible, bespoke outplacement support

Unlike other outplacement providers, all of our individual outplacement support is delivered on an ‘as long as it takes’ basis, meaning your people will be looked after until they have secured their next opportunity. This means they can take the time to find the right next opportunity for them, or even take some time out before actively pursuing their next opportunity, with the assurances that their Connor consultant will still be there to support them. They can set the pace, taking away any added stress that can come from thinking they will be told their time is up.

Connor’s offer is unrivalled in the market. Whatever level your employee is at in your organisation, all of our individual outplacement support includes bespoke consultant-led support, access to our online resources and a comprehensive wellbeing and Employee Assistance Programme platform, until your leavers discover their next opportunity – plus 3 months’ onboarding. Working directly with their own personally matched, peer-level consultant, the service is always flexible, local and accessible as we come to meet your leavers wherever they prefer.

This gives people the confidence to move on positively, leaving your organisation as brand ambassadors, and helps to maintain business as usual with a smooth handover of information and reassurance for your retained employees.

"We want to give best-in-class services to the people we are responsible for. When it comes to people leaving, this means choosing Connor to provide outplacement.”

Tools to ensure success

Whatever level your individuals are, the Connor service includes access to a range of practical job search materials, as well as our acclaimed online Connor career centre. This provides them with access to competitive career intelligence, giving your leavers the inside track when it comes to their job search and helping ensure a successful transition.

We also know that sometimes, life’s demands can get in the way of us performing at our best so we also ensure everyone we work with has access to our comprehensive wellbeing and Employee Assistance programme, to support with some of the wider practicalities that can indirectly affect your job search success.

Why Connor?

We partner with you. With Connor, you’ll have a peer-level consultant working shoulder to shoulder with you for as long as it takes you to find your next opportunity – whatever that may be. Even after you secure your next opportunity, we stay with you for a further 90 days to help you settle in and achieve success.

We value individuality and recognise that each person is different. That’s why every single person receives tailored, bespoke support from Connor.
