These services are provided mainly via the employer to people whose roles have been, or are being made, redundant – although they can also be accessed by individuals directly. The support is delivered by HR specialists and comprises a raft of measures to enable individuals to find an alternative role or career path as quickly as possible.
Kate Allen, Managing Director at Allen Associates, explained: “This is an incredibly challenging time for many of our clients who are facing some very tough decisions as part of their restructuring. We know that making roles redundant is a last resort for the businesses that we work with and that they will want to do the right thing by their people, whenever they can.
“One way that employers can show their support for staff is by offering them outplacement services as part of their severance package. Delivered by HR professionals, these services comprise a tailored programme of coaching, practical online tools, and advice to help bridge the gap between their current role and their future aspirations. For some this may be about securing a new role at a similar level while for others it may provide an opportunity for a change of career, to start their own business or even retire.
“We are delighted to be partnering with specialist HR Consultants at SYLO |Beyond HR who have a proven track record of delivering a range of flexible support services to individuals and organisations, supporting people and businesses at all stages of their employment lifecycle.”
Sarah Stevens, Director at SYLO |Beyond HR, said: “We are very excited about the launch of this new service. We have been providing this support for a number of years, but it makes perfect sense to collaborate with Allen Associates as bringing our expertise together really provides a comprehensive package of support for employers looking to do the right thing for their employees, and for the individuals themselves.”
Outplacement services vary from individual to individual but typically include skills analysis and re-training, CV writing, interview preparation, confidence building, transitioning guidance and coaching.
