When changes are on the horizon in the company and employees have to be let go, there are many different causes. The most common reasons for employee separation are reorganisation, downsizing or differing viewpoints. But company takeovers or closures can also lead to redundancies. Grass & Partner supports you, your employees and your company in these important processes and actions.

Outplacement/new placement

Your benefits as an employer

Change management is an issue for those at the top – reorientation is part of a company’s responsibility. It might sound simple, but in reality this is a difficult process. An outplacement programme can support the employer and compensate the employee. It:

  • Supports the company in its adjustment to changing market conditions and eases this process
  • Shows an awareness of social responsibility on the part of the employer in difficult situations
  • Makes the duration and costs of the separation clear
  • Enhances the image of the company both internally (among remaining employees) and externally
  • Helps the employee who has been let go cope with this difficult situation
  • Supports the reputation and image of the company
  • Minimises possible consequences relating to employment law
  • Helps to stabilise the emotional state of the employee when being given notice
  • Supports the employee in a difficult stage of life with positive discussions and experiences

  • Softens the social impact in the event of a company subdivision being dismantled or a company, subsidiary or national subsidiary facing total closure
