When redundancy is announced for any staff members, it can be a disconcerting stage for them to navigate and this is why our outplacement services are so important.
Lack of knowledge of the jobs market, rusty interview skills, and a poor network can all contribute to a feeling of being ill prepared to re-enter the jobs market; something borne out by the findings of our independent research project, which demonstrated the disparity between how candidates view their level of preparedness, and how headhunters and recruiters view them. We appreciate that you want the best for outgoing staff, and we take care to reflect that requirement with professional outplacement coaching.
A positive approach from any programme is also vital, when those left behind need a sense of calm and order to the proceedings, and those directly affected depart with a sense of positivity about the company, as well as firm strategies in place regarding their next career steps. These are the reasons why every company should have effective career management by introducing outplacement.
How do we
We will prepare clients with up-to-date skills and techniques to enable effective relationships to be built with key decision making through intense personal branding training and coaching. Our network of peer contacts, and headhunters around the globe we will actively represent clients to our network.
Everything we do is personalised. It’s what we have built our brand on. It’s how we ensure that clients are as prepared as possible to be the best candidate they can be. What we don’t offer is a ‘sausage factory’ or ‘conveyor belt’ approach to outplacement!
This added representation element is something that we find clients really like; that additional support in nudging open some doors, as against a very typical experience of outplacement being slightly ‘conveyor belt’ in approach. Everything we do is personalised. It’s what we have built our brand on. It’s how we ensure that clients are as prepared as possible to be the best candidate they can be.
