The economic impact of coronavirus and the subsequent lockdown is deep, wide-ranging and no respecter of history or reputation.
We have worked closely, providing support services such as outplacement workshops, with a number of clients who have had to implement redundancies and there is no doubt that a professional and considered approach to assisting those affected find new roles pays dividends in terms of the whole process, the employer’s reputation and morale of remaining staff.
- Redundancy affects all of the workforce not just those leaving
- Redundancies handled badly can make it more difficult to recruit when business improves
- Many employees will have long service and little or no recent experience in preparing CVs and applying for jobs.
- Very often graphic designers produce the worst CVs
- Job seekers need to understand:
- Transferable skills and what makes them attractive to employers
- How to prepare a good CV
- How to prepare and ace an interview
Our redundancy/outplacement support service is provided on a not for profit basis. The service can support a few individuals up to entire staffs.
