Letting employees go is never an easy task. You realize that you’ll have a direct impact on their livelihood and their families. Yet, there are times when it’s necessary to reduce headcount. How you conduct your reduction in force and the outplacement support you provide can have a significant positive impact on these employees and boost the morale, productivity and trust of continuing employees.

Kokopella offers services to help you plan your reduction, your managers prepare for the announcement, and provide in-depth, customized outplacement services for employees, emphasizing strategies that will help them shorten their search, and land in another great job faster:

Strategic RIF Planning: prior to implementation we collaborate with your HR Team to plan a smooth Reduction In Force.

Manager Notification Training: a seminar designed to help managers prepare to deliver notifications with sensitivity and respect. The content of this program is coordinated with Human Resources to reinforce and support their messaging.

Outplacement Services: delivered for 1 or 2 employees or for large groups of employees, designed to fit your budget and tailored to employees’ very specific needs.

Human Resources Support Seminar: a program designed just for HR to help better manage the stresses they endure throughout the reduction planning and delivery.

Our goal is to help you plan your reduction and provide outplacement services to create the best outcome for your company and separating and continuing employees.
