How can employers find out whether or not an outplacement provider of assistance for redundant employees is suitable?

There are many outplacement providers and employers should spend time researching them. The ability to provide face-to-face support to the redundant employee is essential. Other factors that employers should investigate are the consultant's skills, qualifications and experience, how many new clients the consultant takes on each week and the length of the support programme. Employers could speak to past users and staff of the service provider to find out how suitable it is.
