It Doesn’t Cost a Fortune
Typically, outplacement has only been given to senior people, mainly due to cost. Membership of the Work Horizons online site allows all levels of the organisation to be supported. To quote one manager, this is the ‘democratisation of outplacement’. Perhaps it is better described as universal support but the point is a valid one.
Naturally, the nature of the help can include 1:1 coaching, team coaching, workshops, CV writing and health advice, but at its core is the membership which is affordable enough to be given to everyone.
If the company is going into receivership, it is another matter but if there is life and a future it could be a key feature of the redundancy programme. Remember, the survivors are watching and want their friends and colleagues to also see a way forward.
