Randstad Sourceright Introduces Career Transition Services
Outplacement and Redeployment Support Helps Companies Protect their Employer Brands, Maintain Employee Productivity and Mitigate Risk

ATLANTA, December 4, 2014Randstad Sourceright, a global talent leader, today announced the launch of its Career Transition Services line of business in the U.S. The service is designed to provide transitioning employees with the support they need to continue their  careers in the event of corporate restructuring, downsizing or other operational factors. By helping departing employees find their next great career opportunities quickly, organizations can reap significant benefits in terms of brand reputation, employee productivity and risk mitigation.

Whether through internal redeployment or outplacement services that connect them with best- fit job opportunities externally, Randstad leverages its unrivaled experience putting 600,000 people to work globally each day to deliver a complete service built upon three pillars:
  • Expertise: Companies and their transitioning employees gain support from the best career coaches and job placement experts in the industry.
  • Technology: Via Randstad Sourceright’s Career Advantage platform, employees can access leading job search tools, career coaching, interview preparation, resume review and live web-based communities to facilitate the outplacement process.
  • Relationships: The company’s vast network and direct access to job opportunities help to connect talent with hiring employers and accelerate placement time.
By providing all levels of transitioning talent with assistance, companies can be seen as employers of choice committed to supporting the workforce through the entire employee- relationship lifecycle. This can, in turn, improve morale and boost performance among current employees and protect a company’s employer brand. As effective outplacement puts people back to work quickly, Randstad Sourceright also helps companies reduce the risk of termination lawsuits and can help minimize future unemployment insurance tax burdens.

“Workforce reductions are never easy, but the way companies handle these situations can have a lasting impact on both the employees who are let go and those who remain with the organization,” said Karen Turner, president, Career Transition Services, for Randstad Sourceright. “Through our Career Transition Services business, we help employers navigate this difficult event, providing unrivaled expertise and a candidate-centric approach that leverages  our proven recruiting methodology and jobs network. We don’t just help individuals find a job, but a meaningful position in line with career goals and objectives.”
