Having onsite redundancy support when notifying employees of their job loss is something we strongly recommend. Once you’ve decided that redundancies are necessary, and which employees will be leaving, the emotions can hit you hard.

Having the support of an outplacement provider with you on the day you notify employees is incredibly valuable. Not only can they provide support to you when faced with what is a difficult task, they can also help support your employees on their journey forwards.

Let’s look at thespecific benefits having onsite redundancy support can provide to you and your team.

 

What Does Onsite Redundancy Support Provide?

 
Once the decisions have been made regarding upcoming redundancies at your workplace, it’s time to pick up the phone and call an outplacement provider. Engaging with a professional outplacement service provider early on in the process is vital. They understand what both you and your employees are, and will go through and are there to support you.
 
  • It can be hard to predict how employees will behave when you give them the news of their upcoming redundancy. Having the knowledge that someone independent is onsite to guage the person’s reaction to the job loss, identify those at risk and ensure they are effectively supported can be a huge relief.
  • Having the outplacement provider there from the beginning of their redundancy helps the employee to build a productive relationship with them quickly. This not only helps with the processing of the news, but can also increase the level of employee uptake in the outplacement programs.
  • Providing this guidance and support early helps to position the employer favourably in the eyes of the employees and can send a clear message that you are still invested in their future, despite the redundancy.
  • Impacted employees can be met with individually after they’ve received notification, to be informed about what outplacement support there is available for them and what the next steps are. The outplacement provider can also help the employee walk through and manage their emotions which will help to avoid any outbursts in the office that could affect other employees.
  • It’s emotionally challenging to tell someone their job no longer exists. Often this task can lead to sleepless nights and plenty of stress. Having an outplacement provider onsite with you gives you the emotional support you need.
