Outplacement and Restructuring Services

Workforce Reduction Strategies

Company Downsizing by an Outplacement Agency 

When you are forced to make tough financial decisions to downsize employees, any additional support that you provide your team adds value to your brand and brand image. Gratuity and other UAE labor law benefits as the end of service benefits, may not necessarily be considered as outplacement support since they are required by law. 


Outplacement Services is a rapidly growing component of a severance agreement that is intended to help employees find work quickly and depending on circumstances and external support, following a layoff or job loss. 

Outplacement can be very effective as it shows a great deal of involvement from the employer.

What is Outplacement?

​Outplacement is a program of supporting employees to make a transition into the next phase of their careers. This mainly occurs when a company due to various circumstances from restructuring to downsizing is forced to make changes to minimize the employee overhead costs. Ever since COVID-19 and the subsequent lockdown and work from home, many companies have found their sales figures and profits dramatically get affected. To ensure company continuity, outplacement has become essential.


Many laid-off employees can be unfamiliar with current job searching techniques if they haven't sought employment for a long time, training in job searching is also provided.

We help you develop resumes and cover letters and even advise jobs for individuals. We provide job leads and follow-up counseling and advice.

Outplacement is not only about directly finding new employment. For employees who may have been laid off, it is also a need and opportunity for psychological support and career counseling.​
