Outplacement for internationals

Outplacement is a service designed to assist employees who are transitioning out of their current employment and seeking new career opportunities. It provides guidance, resources, and expertise to help individuals successfully navigate this transitional phase. In most cases an outplacement program is offered by employers when an employee is unable to stay with the organisation, for example because of economic reasons of reorganisation.

Outplacement tailored to include the challenges of internationals

For international individuals facing outplacement, the experience can be different from that of a Dutch person. We recognize that cultural factors and language barriers can add complexity to the outplacement process. That’s why we offer tailored support specifically designed to address the challenges faced by international professionals.

What our coaches can assist you with

Our outplacement services are designed to guide and support you through this transition, ensuring a smooth and successful career transition. Our experienced coaches can assist you with:

How outplacement is financed

In the Netherlands outplacement is usually financed by the employer. There is also a transitievergoeding (transitional budget) every employee has a right to if their contract is ended/discontinued by their employer without fault of their own. Click below to see our most frequently asked questions regarding outplacement services (page is in Dutch).
