Career Transition

Career Decisions

Knowing which direction to take in the workplace can be challenging.

For those at a career crossroads, making the right decisions and taking the right path is critical to their personal, and your businesses, success. It can be a daunting and sometimes overwhelming process. The right support to help them make informed choices makes all the difference.
Through Group Career Workshops, Career Direction Surgeries or individual 1-2-1 sessions, we provide employees with the tools and knowledge to conduct an in-depth skills analysis, which alongside personal objectives, can be used to evaluate whether a change of career direction is the right move for them now or in the future. We can help explore the common barriers experienced when considering a change of career direction and how those barriers can be challenged, navigated, and overcome to achieve career satisfaction.

Whether it’s exploring current career options, developing a career plan, preparing for a promotion or a change within the company, career direction coaching can help employees clarify exactly what routes to take and help make the change a reality.

FAQs

Q

What are Career Decision Services?

A

Put simply, career decision services provide both practical and emotional support to individuals affected by organisational change. Career change can be a challenging and emotive time - for the organisation, the team and, most importantly, for the individuals.

Career decision services allow individuals to fully assess the options available to them and move forward with confidence. 

Q

What does career decisions support include?

A

Depending upon the service selected, interventions may include:

  • Individual, tailored career coaching – this could include career planning, the identification of transferable skills, application support, interview skills and many other topics to suit individual needs

  • Group workshops on a wide range of subjects

  • A robust CV review 

  • Full access to the interactive tools and resources within our market-leading career resource hub SnapDragon 

  • An unrivalled schedule of virtual career workshops

  • Practical e-learning across a range of subjects especially designed for those experiencing career transition

Q

Why should I offer Career Decision support?

A

Any organisation who values their reputation will be keen to ensure that those affected by career transition are fully supported to move onto a bright and progressive future. Justifying the cost of support can be tough to position with the board when every penny counts. However, the investment is worthwhile - in almost all cases, the additional benefits far surpass the financial outlay and include:
 

  • An enhanced "psychological contract" across the organisation 

  • Reinforcing engagement at a difficult time 

  • Retaining key talent 

  • Maintaining productivity and retention – both during and after change 

  • Protecting your reputation and employer brand 

Q

What is Working Transitions' approach to Career Decisions Support?

Q

How can I ensure Career Decisions Support across all levels?

A

Our programmes are designed to offer choice and flexibility and individuals can tailor their programme of support according to their own needs whilst working within a pre-agreed budget. We recognise that each person's career path is different and so we offer access to a wide range of services to allow individuals to select the support most relevant to their needs and career goals. 

Q

Do I need to refer a minimum number of individuals for Career Decisions Support?

A

No, we have no minimum numbers required for support. 

Q

Can you provide Career Decisions support to individuals overseas?

A

Yes - as part of the Career Partners International Network, we can guarantee the same high-quality support, with local knowledge and expertise, wherever your participants are in the world. We have successfully partnered to deliver many projects in USA, EMEA and APAC. 

Q

When might organisations find Career Coaching particularly useful?

A

Coaching from our career experts can be particularly useful when: 

  • You need to quickly and effectively integrate new starters 

  • There is a need to accelerate results  

  • Organisational or personal success has created new challenges

  • A gap in skills, confidence or behaviour is identified 

  • An urgent or compelling issue is anticipated (a challenge, stretch goal or opportunity)

  • Leaders are impacted by organisational restructuring

  • Work and life are out of balance, creating unwanted consequences 

 

Q

How will I gauge the success of our Career Decisions Programme?

A

We'll agree key performance indicators at the outset – and will be in regular contact to let you know how things are going. Our project managers are proactive and responsive – if something isn't working, we'll let you know, and we'll make suggestions about how to amend the process to get it just right for your organisation.
