How and why staff leave your organisation is just as important as how and why they join in the first place. The kindness and generosity and you show when parting ways could become part of your personal, professional and brand legacy – so it makes sense to invest in getting it right.

Make redundancy a positive experience with outplacement support

Redundancy is one farewell scenario in which it is particularly important for team members to leave your business feeling inspired and empowered.

Outplacement services can help achieve this by providing those in redundant roles with the advice, tools, confidence and encouragement to progress with the next chapter of their working lives.
