Right Management introduces outplacement services

RightChoice was developed by Right Management after rigorous market research. This included a global satisfaction survey by International Communications Research of more than 21,000 outplacement candidates in 19 countries, and interviews with client organisations in numerous different industries. The research provided key insights into the drivers of satisfaction and criteria for success for sponsoring organisations and outplacement candidates and RightChoice was designed based on these findings.

According to President and Chief Operating Officer of Right Management Douglas J Mathews, “Right Management have established new industry standards by designing the most innovative, compassionate, and results-driven service that demonstrates an unprecedented commitment to partnership, value, and social responsibility — creating a competitive advantage for organisations and individuals in transition.”

The features which makes RightChoice unique are its commitment to stay connected with candidates right through the  transition to success — whether it’s securing a new job, starting a business, or exploring work/life options — a first-ever pledge in the outplacement industry.  Not only does it promises results-based accountability but also elevates and aligns Right Management’s dedication to social responsibility with the sponsoring organisations while focusing on outcomes, and not the process.

It also offers choices about how services are accessed and delivered, enabling personalised approaches to the transition goals of both organisations and their former employees. “Anytime, anywhere access” offers candidates more choices about when, where, and how they receive services — meeting them where they are, and not pushing them into a “canned” programme.

Apart from providing faster outplacement engagements to ensure candidates’ transitions are smoother, RightChoice provides personalised support from career and job-resource consultants whose expert guidance ensures that candidates identify the best possible career paths for themselves — and pursue these successfully.

The ongoing, worldwide satisfaction studies validate that RightChoice results and helps in providing tailor made solutions to the communities and markets where sponsoring companies do business, and where their separated employees pursue their careers.

According to Matthews, “RightChoice is the most personalised approach to outplacement available today, distinguished from all others by Right Management’s results-based accountability and continuing investment in candidates’ transition success”.

“Since 86 per cent of outplacement candidates remain in their same communities after they have been separated, organisations want to do the right thing for their former employees and ensure positive relationships are maintained should they want to hire them back in the future.  With RightChoice organisations can increase separated employees’ opportunities to find the best new jobs or next careers the fastest with the least disruption,” added Matthews.

It has become more essential than ever for organisations to maintain their reputations and brands for consumers, investors, current and future employees.  “The talent shortage has made it more important for organisations to stand out from their competitors.  Corporate image and reputation are critical differentiators in competing for qualified employees.  With RightChoice, an organisation’s sincere concern for their separated employees’ careers is both visible and tangible,” added Matthews.
