Outplacement:

In an increasingly challenging climate, many organisations are facing the reality of significant change in order to maintain a competitive advantage. The prospect of talent rationalisation is often a consequence of this change. Issuing employee redundancies can be extremely stressful and traumatic for both the company and employees. This requires special skills and thorough planning to ensure a smooth and successful outcome. 

HERO'S career transition and outplacement solution can assist organisations, to ensure the downsizing experience is handled sensitively and professionally, while achieving your overall objectives. We will customise an outplacement solution for your business to minimise employee hardship while reducing corporate and personal exposure. We also search for other employment opportunities and locate new jobs for employees who are made redundant. Importantly, Hero also provides practical career advice and emotional support along with career coaching, resume preparation, interview preparation, profiling on social media platforms, routes to market and salary benchmarking.
