Government Technology Organisation

A major technology overhaul involved several hundred people applying for positions in the new structure. Unsuccessful applicants had the option to redeploy or take voluntary redundancy. If those options were unsuccessful, or not chosen, compulsory redundancy followed.

Background:  A major technology overhaul involved several hundred people applying for positions in the new structure. Unsuccessful applicants had the option to redeploy or take voluntary redundancy. If those options were unsuccessful, or not chosen, compulsory redundancy followed.

Support: Working Transitions designed and created a tailored programme that focused on well-being and stress, and how the transition impacted the employees. Another focus was for the staff to fully understand the amount of support they had available, especially when transitioning through Outplacement.

Part of this programme was to coach the senior management team through the challenging time and reduce the pressure on them. Also, by preparing the staff for significant personal change by building personal resilience, and enable them to be more personally responsible for their future.

Outcome: Union feedback was very positive and senior managers credit the programme with reduced stress, maintained focus and maintenance of business as usual at a difficult time.
