Outplacement To Suit All Budgets

Our clients tell us that one of the biggest challenges they face right now is budget - unsurprising considering the unprecedented trading conditions faced by many. Difficult times often result in challenging decisions – and when forced to make redundancies to cut costs, investing in outplacement support can feel out of sync with the organisational objective.

We understand the requirement to minimise costs at this time – as well as the need to demonstrate value. The right outplacement support delivers benefits – both to the departing employee AND the organisation – that far surpass the financial outlay. Supporting employees to leave well and move forward with confidence and purpose is not only the right thing to do, but offers a wealth of benefits that include:

AN ENHANCED PSYCHOLOGICAL CONTRACT ACROSS THE ORGANISATION

Companies that provide outplacement support as part of their redundancy programme often find that it can lower the ‘emotional temperature’ across their organisation. By fully supporting exiting employees, you demonstrate both to them, and to those who remain, that despite the current challenging circumstances you value them as employees and are committed to their wellbeing.

MAINTAINENCE OF PRODUCTIVITY AND RETENTION

Periods of change can sometimes result in poor productivity - remaining employees are affected by uncertainty and become distracted, worrying about their future and that of the organisation. A well-timed support programme can provide a reassuring and focused place for addressing worries, so time at work can remain positive and productive.

PROTECTION OF REPUTATION

The human impact of Workplace Transition – particularly where there is no support provided - is often underestimated by employers but with the growth of social media and online review sites such as Glassdoor it should not be taken lightly - employer reputation is at stake!

REINFORCING ENGAGEMENT AT A DIFFICULT TIME

Properly supporting employees as they move through outplacement demonstrates that, despite everything, their service is valued and that supporting them into their next role – or stage of life is important to you as an organisation. This tangible evidence that their employer cares and values all employees sends a powerful message to those who remain

We offer a range of outplacement programmes that can quickly deliver benefits to a large number of employees – regardless of geographical location – and to suit your budget.

At this time, we have introduced some additional low-cost options that offer flexibility and support, whilst protecting your budget.
