What is outplacement 2.0?

What is outplacement 2.0 by Tony de Bree

Hi, how are you?

Like many people in traditional large organizations since the beginning of the Covid-19 crisis, prior to me leaving ABN Amro at the end of 2011, I was required to go through a traditional outplacement program in ‘preparation for the labourmarket’ as HR saw it.

It was actually a waste of valuable time and money for ABN Amro, but also for me personally. Why? Because even then the chance for someone like me (50plus)  to find a new similar job with a comparable salary was practically nil.

Traditional outplacement is a waste of time, especially now if you are 50plus.

And that is even more the case during the beginning of the Covid-19 crisis in my home country The Netherlands and in many other countries in Europe and in the world.

I knew it probably would be, so since the year 2000 I had been working on what I had called my online plan-b, my personal future-proofing right-skillingplan.

More: ‘Corporate Skills Are Irrelevant For Entrepreneurship’, ‘What Is The A La Carte Learningmodel?’ 

And that really helped me, including since the beginning of the Covid-19 crisis. I call that approach “Outplacement 2.0”.

What is outplacement 2.0?

Outplacement 2.0 are innovative on-demand services that help a former or already fired employee in the transition to successful self-employment or in finding a new job at corporates, but especially at startups, scale-ups and SMEs. It combines tailor-made blended learning programs for “right-skilling talent” with tailor-made activities for “talent repositioning”.
