Cutting-edge companies around the world recognize helping their people plan and achieve their career goals – which may ultimately include leaving the company through an outplacement strategy – yields greater loyalty, productivity and employee engagement while at the same time building a strong employment brand and alumni network.

According to Patty McCord, former chief talent office at Netflix, “Careers are journeys. Nobody’s going to want to do the same thing for 60 years.” She went on to say, “What if we created companies that were great places to be from? Then, everyone who leaves you becomes an ambassador for not only your product, but who you are and how you operate.” Increasingly, companies are looking to their alumni base to play a pivotal role in helping address the talent gap. A recent Deloitte study found that millennials, already the largest constituency in the workforce, look at corporate mission and social responsibility as key elements of their employment decisions. The people we want to hire are paying attention to how we treat former employees and their stories matter. By offering former employees the ability to safely and effectively transition from our companies, we dont just reap the benefits of lower unemployment insurance premiums in the future or flattering coverage in the press. We create brand ambassadors that tell our stories on social sites, in water cooler conversations and to others evaluating our companies as potential next steps in their careers. The question isn’t whether or not our alumni are telling our story. They are. The question is whether or not the story being told is building or berating our increasingly-important employment brand?
