Career Transition


A constant state of change is now normal for many organisations.  There is a continuous need to evolve the skills and organisational structure of the workforce.  The world’s most successful organisations understand the value of helping their employees evolve with them. 

By enhancing internal mobility, aiding better navigation of the internal job market and helping employees understand their values and aspirations, organisations, and their employees, can reap significant rewards.

Successful employee redeployment not only reduces the financial burden of redundancy and recruitment costs, but also, importantly, builds a stronger and more valuable culture through reduced churn, skills and knowledge retention and a more committed and engaged workforce.

Our Redeployment Programmes enable employees to navigate the process with ease, whether that be creating a winning CV, mastering application forms, preparing for interview or working on their personal brand. Our programmes can include 1-2-1 coaching, group workshops and digital support, all tailored to meet your specific needs.

We help empower your employees to ensure they are clear on what transferrable skills they have and can use, understand what behaviours are critical for their new role, and what success looks like for you and for them. With this in place, an existing employee is set up for success and can hit the ground running in a new role.



What are Redeployment Services?


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

Redeployment services allow individuals to understand and accept the change – and the rollercoaster of emotions that they may experience, fully assess the options available to them and move forward with confidence to a new role.


What does redeployment support include?


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 learning rooms on a wide range of subjects
  • A robust CV review
  • Full access to the interactive tools and resources within our market-leading career hub 'SnapDragon'
  • Group learning rooms on a wide range of subjects
  • An unrivalled schedule of virtual career workshops
  • Practical e-learning across a range of subjects especially designed for those experiencing changes in their career


Why should I offer Redeployment support?


Any organisation who values their reputation will be keen to ensure that those affected by career changes are fully supported to move forward with confidence and emotional resilience. Justifying the cost of redeployment support can be tough to position with key stakeholders, especially if budgets are tight. 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 
  • Key talent feeling invested in and valued 
  • Maintaining productivity and retention – both during and after change 
  • Protecting your reputation and employer brand 


What is Working Transitions' approach to Redeployment?


Our redeployment solutions have been designed to provide maximum flexibility and personalised support – whilst respecting your budget. 

Our team can talk you through costs and help to design a service that delivers the best results for you and your people.


How can I ensure Redeployment Support across all levels?


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.


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


No, we have no minimum numbers required for support. 


Can you provide Redeployment support to individuals overseas?


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. 


How will I gauge the success of our Redeployment Programme?


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.
