We also offer a blend of Outplacement Support, online skills training and Career Advisory sessions for those needing to move on in their career, within and outside the organisation.
As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, many UK businesses need to consider options around their business operations which may include the need to, unfortunately, reduce their employee numbers; always an unpleasant and unsettling experience for all. However, there are some measures you can implement to make the redundancy experience as positive as possible, by offering Outplacement Support to affected employees -enabling them to positively move forward with their careers.
What is Outplacement Support?
Outplacement Support provides help, direction, and guidance to employees in finding new roles. This support can incorporate activities such as, CV review, interview training and preparation, tailored one-to-one Coaching, general job search advice, and an overview of career assessments.
Why should you invest in Outplacement Support?
It’s a common question, ‘why should we invest in helping people who are no longer our employees?’ The reason for this is to demonstrate that your company and brand values are mindful of their employees and have a genuine care for them.
This also maintains your company’s reputation whilst also showing the employees who remain with you, that as a business you will do the best you can for all your employees, even if they must leave. Providing Outplacement Support for your employees is essentially giving them an opportunity in the world of uncertainty, something tangible to focus on that will provide real value.
Outplacement Support enables redundant employees to proceed much better prepared to the next chapter in their careers. We provide them the tools to characterise their interests, passions and direct their following steps which, leads to them becoming recruited again, much sooner than if Outplacement Support was not given.
Employees who lose their jobs will of course be worried about their financial position. Fortunately, Outplacement Support services are complimentary to all employees as this cost is covered by their employer.
By the end of the programme, individuals are trained and prepared to launch themselves into the job market and carry out an effective job search campaign with more confidence.
