Our Chicago Outplacement Approach

There is nothing more honourable than giving fired or displaced employees opportunities to continue their careers. RSI helps businesses achieve this obligation by providing them with a full suite of personalized outplacement services. We understand the requirements of the workforce of today and upgrade our offerings accordingly. Our expertise lies in creating systems that will speed up outplacements and allow you to spend more time on core operations.

Just because a worker leaves your organization, doesn’t mean that they should be left to fend for themselves. Our mission is to help businesses maintain excellent relations with outgoing employees. We provide them with a host of resources and consultation services so that they can focus on landing new jobs.

In order to help your employees with the transition, we offer:

  • Resume Distribution to Hiring Managers and Decision Makers
  • Professional Resume Writing (Creating a Resume from scratch or Modifying a current Resume)
  • The Best Interviewing Techniques
  • Job Search Strategies
  • One on One Career Coaching
  • Linkedin Branding (Creation or Modifying)
  • Private Career Portal

Our Outplacement Services Catering to Every Industry

The only way to your employee’s transition through the changing phases is to come up with strategies and innovations to outclass your rivals at every stage of the business world. Reaction Search International (RSI) provides Outplacement Services to all major and minor industries, including:

Improve Company Morale

Increase your business’s appeal in front of investors, customers, future candidates and current employees. Firing employees in front of their colleagues and leaving them in the lurch may make current employees question your professionalism as an employer. They may feel insecure about their own futures in the company which in turn can affect their motivation to work in its best interests. You don’t want productivity to drop.

Making outplacement services a part of severance not only shows good insight, it demonstrates that you are professional and do whatever you can to ensure that your company progresses.

RSI understands that the “one size fits all” approach does not suit every employer’s requirements. The businesses of today vary in the type of people they hire. Unfortunately, HR departments are grossly understaffed and cannot always spend company time to facilitate displaced employees according to their specific job requirements. Our industry experts help employees and employers the following ways:

  • Developing areas for career advancement
  • Acknowledge various career options including self employment
  • Creating marketing plans
  • Researching potential areas for career advancement
  • Evaluating and helping employees utilize marketable strengths
  • Carrying out individual or group outplacement
  • Counseling for emotional trauma caused by layoffs or displacement
  • Training in negotiating offers or salary packages
  • And more


We strive to make transitions as painless and convenient as possible for both employers as well as employees.
