Outplacement

Managing a company means making the right decisions not the easy ones. Particularly in today’s economic climate, it is important to monitor your competitiveness, sustainability and profitability and develop your strategy accordingly. New strategy can bring positive changes and new opportunities but sometimes can mean that employees who have been loyal and worked hard for you no longer have a part to play. It is important that redundancy strategies are thought through and employees given the respect and opportunities they deserve.

Outplacement

ERKO Coaching can help support you and your staff through a process of change and restructure in different ways.

Career Transition

Many of your staff will never have faced redundancy before. As well as needing support with coming to terms with the loss of their job and staying positive, they will need practical help in making decisions about the next step in their career.

ERKO Coaching are experts in helping people develop strategies for getting back into employment in their ideal role as quickly as possible. We can tailor packages for the needs of your individual employees. Packages would generally help with the following areas:

  • Understanding & Managing Change
  • Evaluating values, career drivers and motivators, skills and competencies
  • Identifying & Analysing Future Career Options
  • Coaching in Advanced Job Search Skills
  • Individuals will receive practical help in writing a high impact professional resume, accessing the hidden job market and using LinkedIn for marketing and job search

All our outplacement coaching packages include face to face coaching and additional text, phone call and email support and run for a number of sessions and\\/or period of time.

Redundancy Support

ERKO Coaching can provide one or more psychologists on the premises where staff redundancies are being announced. Staff who require this service on the day can simply go to see our counsellor and talk to them as necessary. Our psychologist will assess their current emotional state and make further recommendations which could include a short period of counselling to help them through their change of circumstance.

We can also provide workshops on a range of topics associated with outplacement, such as change management, stress management, job search skills and interview skills at any point during your restructure process.
