The new website – connectmycareer.org.uk – explains how the charity’s outplacement service can help employers to support staff facing redundancy. It helps to update staff job search skills, enabling them to understand their career strengths and identify new career opportunities. In doing so, staff keep control of their careers and can quickly find new employment opportunities to apply for.
Outplacement offers a number of tangible benefits to businesses. Firstly, it reduces the pain and stress of redundancy by helping staff focus on career planning and finding new employment. Secondly, it helps employees update job search skills they may not have used for years. Thirdly, it helps employers show they care what happens to staff following redundancy, thus helping protect their professional reputation.
