Outplacement - 4 myths busted

After 25 years in the industry you might expect that our view would be different. Our evidence of how beneficial this type of service can be to employers is based on feedback from over 1000 organisations and around 750,000 individuals that we’ve worked with during this time.

Despite over 40 years of legislation, the percentage of females in ‘top’ roles – both in parliament and in business - still shows a gaping chasm.
