If your company is about to downsize, you will likely need to eliminate jobs in order to cut costs and maintain profitability. This can have a negative emotional impact: employees who are laid off tend to suffer from depression, anxiety, insomnia and other problems.
Especially those employees who have invested their whole lives in the company. In turn, this affects company image and brand engagement. This is why exiting employees need to be treated with respect, care and dignity to minimize any trauma associated with downsizing.
TMG’s individual outplacement program is designed to help companies like yours find new jobs for dismissed employees.
TMG offers a complete personalized step-by-step program based on employees’ needs, for a smooth transition into a new job.
An individual outplacement program of at least six months is required to break through conflicting thinking and behavior patterns. This takes place through weekly conversations of 75 minutes by phone, Skype or in person. I am accessible between coaching conversations to answer questions or provide feedback.
This program offers a variety of objectives that will help manage and develop your exiting employees to become more effective and skilled in finding the right job.
Step 1 – Restore confidence of exiting employees
This step enables employees to process emotions of anger and grief in a compassionate way. As a result, your employees will feel supported and motivated to further build on their career and achieve results.
Step 2 – Prepare to be found by recruiters and employers
This step allows employees to build a solid job search by simplifying job search documents (resume, LinkedIn, email). Employees will learn to identify their strengths, talents and enhance their profile in order to ensure recruiters and employers find them.
Step 3 – Find the best opportunities through application strategies
In this step employees evaluate and re-energize their job searches. This will save time and energy and will enable them to search for a more specific job within their field and interests. They will learn to use connections and recruiters in their favor.
