B+P Insight: Why use Career Advisory services when letting go of a person from your organisation?

Why Use Career Advisory Services? Everyone is affected when an organisation is in transition. Managers responsible for termination decisions experience a great deal of anxiety and concern. Displaced employees must come to grips with job loss, an experience that many compare to losing a loved one. Remaining employees, worried that their jobs may be cut next, are forced to pick up the work left behind by those who were terminated. Clients and customers may begin to wonder if the organisation is stable. Much of the responsibility rests on the company to get it right and missteps can often make or break the organisation.

Career Advisory helps people come to terms with the shock of losing their job, and helps them move on quickly and positively to a new role. Career Advisory helps people to choose their next direction and prepare themselves for the job market, and guides them through the process. Turning the redundancy process into a positive move forward is good for the individual, and helps your reputation as an employer among those who have to move on.
