Millions of jobs are going to be lost or, to phrase it more accurately, millions of people are going to lose their employment.
Are all of these redundancies, dismissals and un-renewed contracts absolutely necessary? Almost certainly not, and this may be an opportune moment to re-think staffing levels, release certain people and re-balance skills.
Most managers are relatively compassionate people, so why don’t many of them offer outplacement? Possibly because:
- They have never heard of it
- They don’t understand it
- They think it is expensive
- They believe to pay for it will make it look like they have money and could have kept people
- They genuinely have no money
- The people are leaving, so why worry about them?
At its core, our outplacement offering is the Work Horizons membership website. This gives 24/7 access to content for job hunting but a great deal besides. Lockdown has been a time for reflection for many people and they want to find employment which will give a much greater sense of purpose; the first section of the website takes members through the thought processes to establish for themselves what that might be.
