Are Layoffs Coming? We Can Help

By August 1, 2023August 7th, 2023No Comments

The last few years have caused some upheaval for non-profit organizations as they navigated through operational changes with COVID-19 and were challenged to find new ways to serve their clients.

Nonprofits continue to face uncertainties due to fluctuations in economic conditions such as inflation and consumer uncertainty. According to RNL, Giving USA: The Annual Report on Philanthropy reported that for only the third time in 40 years, contributions declined in 2022. The largest source of giving in 2022 came from individuals and represented 64% of total giving which represented a 6.4% decline over 2021.

So, while the past year has seen more hires in the nonprofit sector, the drop in contributions could signal layoffs in the not-too-distant future.

501 offers members complimentary reemployment coaching packages, through NextJob, to help your laid off employees land jobs much more quickly.

Especially for nonprofits, layoffs can be costly, impacting their people, their culture, their community and their finances. Unfortunately, in several studies, laid-off workers rated their job search skills at a “D+” and while the level of job openings still exceeds the number of job seekers, they are still taking, on average, approximately 23 weeks to land new jobs.

How We Can Help

501 has partnered with NextJob to provide the right help to get your employees back to work 65% faster than they could on their own.

This service is complimentary for 501 members and NextJob has designed different job search packages with three powerful elements of the right help in mind; career coaching, online job search learning tools, and web-based job clubs.


By helping your employees land new jobs, members can:

Manage Employment and Unemployment Claims – You can avoid angry employment claims by helping workers look to their next employer instead of back at their last one. By returning your employees to work faster, you can shorten unemployment claims and impact your bottom line.

Protect Your Brand and Community Goodwill – Providing outplacement assistance communicates powerfully to local communities whose members are often important stakeholders and supporters for a nonprofit organization. Surveys indicate that 95% of employees feel better about employers who provide our outplacement services.

Preserve Morale and Reduce Stress – You can maintain the morale and productivity of your remaining workforce and decrease stress for your management in a difficult time.
