Companies facing workforce reductions need to be cognizant of the fact that even if a position is eliminated, the employee may still be a vital asset.

RiseSmart, the leader in next-generation outplacement solutions, stresses the importance of providing corporations with both outplacement and inplacement solutions in order to avoid losing talented employees during a workforce reduction. In addition to its flagship cloud-based outplacement solution, Transition Concierge, RiseSmart also offers a full-service inplacement solution, Redeployment Concierge, which helps transitioning employees find and fill open positions within their current companies.
Large corporations enduring layoffs in some departments often are experiencing growth in other areas. Redeployment Concierge helps by connecting the employees whose positions are being eliminated with open positions that match their skills and experience in other divisions of the organization. This reduces recruitment and training costs, as well as severance fees, unemployment insurance taxes and other unemployment-related expenses.
“There is a significant demand for this solution in the marketplace today,” said Sanjay Sathe, founder and CEO of RiseSmart. “Companies facing workforce reductions need to be cognizant of the fact that even if a position is eliminated, the employee may still be a vital asset. By taking advantage of Redeployment Concierge, companies dramatically reduce the possibility of losing talent while maintaining a positive employer brand and improving company morale.”
With Redeployment Concierge, employers utilize RiseSmart’s intelligent search engine to match available openings with employee skills, certifications, experience, education and location. Through this solution employees are given the opportunity to search for new positions within the company that match their skill sets and experience using RiseSmart’s semantic job-matching platform. This sophisticated inplacement solution helps both employers and employees.
Redeployment Concierge is a full-service inplacement solution, complete with:
- Access to the online portal to update My Profile, a career profile for job matching and resume development; My Jobs, a list of available jobs within the organization that fit an employee’s skill set; and ReHire ME! webinar training.
- Dedicated support from RiseSmart’s Transition Specialists. They develop tailored internal job search strategies, coach participants on networking opportunities with internal hiring managers and recruiters, teach each employee how to market themselves within the organization, conduct mock interviews, provide assistance with social networking tools as well as general advice.
- Professional resumes and cover letters written by a Certified Professional Resume Writer (CPRW) and a LinkedIn Bio for each employee.
- Internal job leads delivered directly to transitioning employees, and auto-alerts sent to internal recruiters when interest is signaled by transitioning employees.
Redeployment Concierge can be used in conjunction with RiseSmart’s next-generation outplacement solution, Transition Concierge. The combination gives employees whose positions are eliminated the option to relocate within the company or seek a new employer. Employees choosing to apply externally can be secure in the knowledge that with RiseSmart they will find new positions 59% faster than the national average.
