Three Highly Effective Outplacement Service Options
In these unprecedented times, RAI offers three highly effective outplacement service options to meet the needs of all types of businesses throughout the Greater Lehigh Valley, Philadelphia, and beyond, across a wide variety of industries that are faced with downsizing. Our virtual services offer your business all the benefits of outplacement while observing safe social-distancing requirements and meeting the logistical needs of a remote workforce.
RAI outplacement services provide career transition support for those employees impacted by the coronavirus outbreak, as well as other changes. Remote and hybrid services are offered in both group and one-on-one settings. We offer a practical approach to securing new employment, and we use the latest tools and methods to help transition affected employees into new roles.
RAI’s virtual outplacement services are ideal for organizations that:

One of our HR consultants facilitates group meetings on site, with our team of employment and career coaching specialists hosting the event virtually
Hybrid outplacement support includes all of the elements in Option One, with the addition of:

RAI will remain compliant with all state and local COVID-19 restrictions and regulations during the outbreak.
Kudos From RAI Outplacement Clients
“When dealing with layoffs and staff reduction it is the personal side and impacts to families that is the most difficult. You want to work with an organization that becomes an advocate for your former employees as they engage in search for new work. I have worked with RAI Resources on a couple of occasions to provide outplacement services. Their professionalism, compassion and focus on the individual was a significant help to each person as they entered into a very different job market. RAI helped them with resume writing, how to navigate job searching, helping to identify skills sets that fit with the new market and they took time to encourage those that needed to be encouraged. I would highly recommend them for anyone who is looking to provide outplacement services for former employees.”
