Redundancy ... where to turn for help as an employee or employer?
With news of UK redundancies in October 2020 being double last year's rate and the following months looking much the same, we've been busy at the Meaningful Recruitment base offering our help to those in need.
An estimated 842 British employers told the government of plans to cut jobs putting circa 51,000 jobs at risk - that's more than any month on record before the pandemic outbreak and 2.5 times the level of the previous year (data sourced from BBC News). It's a stressful time for everyone involved - for employees affected directly, employers making difficult decisions, families, loved ones and work colleagues who remain in their positions losing their team members.
Clients that we've worked with through these challenging times have shared that their mental health has suffered, stress levels have been very high and career confidence hit an all time low. We've helped them through our 1-2-1 services and Outplacement Support Services to build up their confidence and remain positive in their new job search.
The Outplacement Services we provide are designed to help individuals and organisations thrive through these times of transition. We help our customers become more career confident by providing clarity and focus through carefully structured and supportive frameworks. Specialist experience is given in Individual 1-2-1 coaching sessions focusing on areas such as:-
CV and LinkedIn advice,
Professional CV Writing Services,
LinkedIn Profile Packages,
Job Search Advice,
Career Change Support,
Interview Coaching for both Virtual Interviews and Face To Face Interview,
Access to free e-learning courses to develop new skills.
Our Power Hour packages for people looking for CV help or LinkedIn profile updates have been of great comfort and highly valued by our clients. These services provide an immediate solution which in turn boosts morale and confidence. Clients have reported that they feel proud of what they've achieved during their career and at peace knowing that all the keywords are in their new documents and profiles so they are selected in AI job searches and Applicant Tracking Systems.
For those having trouble keeping on track or lacking motivation to aim for new work goals our Accountability Partner Scheme has helped to meet this need. Sticking to new career goals during these times of change has been hard for many and some clients have needed help to keep committed. The Accountability Partner Scheme is designed to help you keep your Professional and Business Goals on track. We help our customers to keep career momentum, increase productivity and assume the role as a soundboard when help is needed to make goals and dreams become a reality.
Here at Meaningful Recruitment we have over 20 years of experience supporting clients going through redundancy and career changes. Each journey is unique and each journey is supported in a caring and empathetic manner with positive results.
