Outplacement Services – Workshops

Most people will experience redundancy voluntarily or involuntarily at least once in their careers. For affected individuals and organisations, it is usually a stressful and difficult event, in which external support is invaluable. Employees whose roles are made redundant often go through a whole range of emotions – shock, disbelief, mistrust and anxiety – perhaps even anger and bitterness. Unless these employees are supported quickly and effectively, these emotions may spread throughout the organisation, damaging ‘survivor’ motivation and trust.Recognising the need for urgency, the objective is to provide individuals the support that can help them secure the new role in the shortest possible time. 

This workshop is designed to enable participants to make sensible decisions and find the resources they need for this career transition and to move on as quickly and as successfully as possible.To identify where their talents and experience can be used to give them the benefits that they deserve, within an organisation that is right for them.
