While redundancy represents a difficult time for employees, a supportive approach towards planning their next step can be extremely valuable. Outplacement support at work can help people make a positive transition from their current role, making it easier for them to find suitable employment.
Outplacement services can help individuals find new motivation and embrace challenges while developing a positive view of their employment within your organisation.
Tailored outplacement services help individuals to enhance their employability, giving them practical tools through which to negotiate the jobs market, while also improving their confidence.
Helping your employees through a career transition
Redundancy can often come as a shock to employees while others may welcome it. Some will see it as an opportunity to develop new skills and embrace new challenges, while others may feel a sense of loss that a role they enjoyed is coming to an end. The current employer can help make this transition easier by providing outplacement assistance.
Career outplacement services, sometimes referred to as ‘career transition’, provide employees who are leaving the organisation with support to help them in the job market. They help them to find a new post, increase their confidence, and discover new inspiration.
Redundancy outplacement support can make a key difference for individuals whose employment is being terminated, helping them face the future with confidence. With the right support in place, employees can better compete in the jobs market and find suitable employment sooner.
