									Outplacement Services are in Great Demand as Redundancy Support Becomes
the Big Issue for Corporate and Not-For-Profit Sectors

With local government and the corporate sector making redundancies across
the UK and the support for Regional Development Agencies dwindling due to
swingeing cuts, employers and employees could be forgiven for thinking
they have nowhere to turn for outplacement and redundancy support but one
Nottingham company has seen it all before...

Nottingham, UK, August 05, 2010 -- The Changekey Partnership have worked
stoically over the last 18 years to provide support to HR managers and
those faced with impending redundancy. Jeff Priestley, senior partner at
The Changekey Partnership recently commented: "We've seen a distinctive
rise in enquiries from both highly skilled employees in niche management
positions and also HR managers faced with aiding the transition of large
groups of staff, from positions they've likely held for years, to the
prospect of returning to the job market."

Historically the cost of outplacement services has been prohibitive to
many companies, allowing them to offer support only to senior management
and executives and often the reduction of personnel staff within
companies has meant that the resources required to assist the leaver are
not available. Even the task of preparing a simple CV, which by nature is
very time consuming, adds an additional burden to the often untrained and
overworked staff, resulting in increased workload and associated stress.
It’s at this time that professional, cost effective help is required.

Jeff Priestley further commented: "The consequences to organisations that
don't support those being made redundant can be dire. Let's face it,
those employees who keep their jobs 'the survivors' are often expected to
pick up extra work without additional pay and I often hear comments from
these employees such as 'I may have may have survived but do they really
care?' which can lead to the loss of highly skilled and essential staff
at a critical time. He further stated: "Employers need to listen and take
action early on in the redundancy cycle to prevent this lowering of moral
- since recent research has shown that employers, who help their
redundant staff get back into employment as soon as possible, maintain a
positive company image, whilst demonstrating to the remaining workforce
that they care." Jeff asserted: "A solution to maintaining positive
survivor morale is to do as much as practically possible to help
redundant staff in their transition into new employment, resulting in
those remaining feeling confident and more secure."

The Changekey Partnership provide career coaching and practical Job
Search Support, either stand-alone or through specific redundancy
programmes. The outplacement services, redundancy guidance and careers
advice they provide is completely flexible and can be tailored to suit
all budgets and requirements.
