Next Steps Outplacement – The First Six Months
In August 2020 ResourceBank joined with Next Steps to offer a flexible outplacement and careers transitioning service to our existing and new clients. 2020 saw us help organisations across a range of sectors support their people affected by rightsizing, Our recruitment expertise means we have been well placed to provide affected people with up to the minute insight into the jobs market which is evolving at pace because of COVID-19.
Our first big project last year was supporting a manufacturing business which was closing one of its UK sites. The level of support the employer wanted to offer was comprehensive as it had a loyal workforce with many people affected having no experience of job search in the 21st century.
A three stage programme of support including workshops and one to one CV surgeries was designed and delivered. Especially challenging was having to switch from on site delivery to virtual within a short time frame – however the feedback was excellent both from the HR team and participants.
As well as workshops and larger projects we also offer individual support. We have successfully supported a cross section of people from engineers through to senior partners working within the legal sector. Most recently we delivered a series of workshops to our first client in the charity sector which has unfortunately been hit hard by the pandemic – we are proud to have worked with the charity Mind and wish them well for the future.
