Today John is following up on Wednesday’s blog post, When Outplacement Becomes A Guilt Payment.  In today’s podcast, John argues that companies which invest heavily in hiring the right people but then scrimp on outplacement costs, are making a big mistake.  They are hurting their recruiting brand.

The secret is not the amount of money spent on outplacement, but the quality of the firm — their industry-specific experience and their commitment to the departing executive’s future success.
