Is your organisation struggling? Do you think you may have to make some positions redundant? We can help you.
It's difficult for managers to know how to plan and manage redundancies and the resulting impact on staff, suppliers and customers. Managers need training and preparation for times of uncertainty.
Would you like help to know how to prepare for redundancies? Do you need help to manage the people aspects of change effectively so you don’t lose all the talent in the organisation? Do you want to know what to do to ensure the emotional impact is reduced – on those who stay, on those who leave and on your clients?
FREE resources for HR Managers and Business Owners anticipating redundancies.
Contact HR Development at Work on 8322 8455 or
for a free tip sheet on how to prepare for and manage outplacement and redundancies.
The tip sheet includes:
questions you need to have answers to before you make any announcements
what you need to do to prepare for redundancies
tips on how to communicate difficult decisions – with a special focus on what to say on the day to individuals most affected (and who to have on standby to help you)
ideas for how you can manage this situation of uncertainty effectively.

The Client’s View

"I found Bridget's course (Next Steps Job Seeker workshop) extremely useful. It was interesting to see and hear the perspective of the interviewer and what they want to hear and see, and that gave me more confidence to be the interviewee. I found the SOAR acronym particularly helpful as it gave me a structure to answer all questions from the interviewer, both easy and difficult, and this made it much easier. The use of the words as a sentence starter was particularly helpful.
I also found my resume writing improved beyond measure. I also saw this from the employer's perspective and understood more fully exactly what they would like to see in a resume.
Bridget was an enthusiastic, patient and knowledgeable tutor."
“Bridget provided outplacement support for a number of people in 2001 when I worked at SA Brewing. Clearly there were some high emotions involved for individuals with this change and they all spoke glowingly of her ability to be supportive, objective and keep them focussed on what they had to do next. They were also quick to comment on Bridget’s genuine concern and how at ease they felt with her. Additionally, Bridget provided career counselling for another individual … She achieved what years of internal coaching had not been able to! I would have no hesitation calling on Bridget’s services again."

Previous outplacement clients said:
“Thank you for your assistance during my recent outplacement counselling sessions. I have no hesitation in saying that the sessions were major factor in my finding suitable employment so quickly. The personal meeting sessions were relaxed and productive. From the first session my confidence was raised…When first provided with the offer of outplacement counselling from my previous employer I had not really decided whether to take up the opportunity. I had a preconceived view of this type of counselling more as a stress or grief management service than as a pro-active employment training exercise…I may not even have contacted (Bridget) if you had not made the initial contact. Needless to say I am now extremely glad you did …”
“The entire program was extremely useful”
