Other Key Considerations

  • An average net reduction in total severance cost of 30%
  • Quick break-even on investment (typically with first layoff).
  • Smoothing out of cash flow for severance payments.
  • TMS handles 95%+ of administration for displaced employees allowing HR to focus on other value-added initiatives.
  • A resource-rich custom portal provides for a smooth transition for employees.
  • Strong employee advocacy by TMS results in almost no future contact needed with HR by displaced employees.


  • This severance cost savings strategy is used by many Fortune 500 companies, but still widely underutilized and misunderstood.
  • Many companies have not reviewed their severance benefit program in a number of years.
  • Flexibility in plan design can provide for either reduced, same, or increased employee severance benefits, with all resulting in employer savings.
