French daily Les Echos has obtained inside information on the outcome of the public tender by the government's job centres Pole Emploi on the outplacement of 70,000 French managers over two years.
So far, outplacement was the territory of the Association for the Employment of Managers (Apec) but the European Union has imposed on Pole Emploi to put the activity out to the open market. The public tender was closed on Friday and the lucky winners should be informed by mail today.
According to information obtained by Les Echos, Apec has been awarded a budget of 10 million Euro, which accounts for 22% of the tender but is restricted to the regions of Greater Paris and Rhone-Alpes.
However, the real winner is outplacement agency Ingeus, which has been awarded a budget of 19 million Euro, 39% of the tender value. Ingeus should be particularly pleased because in last year's public tender by Pole Emploi (finding jobs for 320,000 job seekers), Ingeus was not awarded a single Euro Cent.
Other winners are staffing agency group Adecco with 9.8 million Euro or 21% of the budget, Initiatives with 7.8 million Euro or 17% of the budget and regional player Intra Conseil with 460,000 Euro or 1% of the budget.
The real losers are Human Resources groups Sodie and Altedia who leave with nothing.
Agencies will have ten days to respond to the outcome of the tender and contest it if they so wish.
