Offering outplacement support
One of the most difficult challenges an organisation faces is a restructuring that may result in making staff redundant.
You can make things so much easier for those at risk of redundancy by offering outplacement support. This is not only a mark of quality for you as an employer, but it frees up time and energy for your internal HR professionals and line managers.
CV Writing, Interview skills training, mock interviews
Outplacement support also means those leaving the organisation do so with a positive experience (helping the transition and the ongoing reputation). It can also help those remaining in the organisation to feel more positive, when they see their colleagues are treated well.
Over the years, McCrudden Training has produced a whole range of learning and support aimed at staff moving to a new job either within or outside the organisation: interview skills training, mock interviews, helped people write their CV, careers coaching as a one-off, as part of a programme. We’ve even run workshops on how to start your own business when you’ve been made redundant.
