This Episode: Outplacement Masterclass – with June Hogan

June Hogan is the director of Wildwood Coaching, and joins Lucinda to talk about the topic of outplacement, the practice of ensuring that outgoing employees are given every chance at a successful future outside of the organisation, which can result in positive impact upon company brand, loyalty and retention.

Key Takeaways

  • When dealing with people, it is crucial to remember that everyone is unique, and must be treated as such. It is about finding out who the individual is, and the circumstances that have led them to this point.
  • A redundancy can negatively impact confidence in a huge way. Roles are made redundant rather than individuals, but we form close-knit bonds to the roles we assume.
  • Change itself comes with a fluctuating set of responses. Some dig in their heels and do not embrace change, but then this feeling can shift to one of receptiveness, and a need to be heard.
  • The benefits of outplacement support, and treating outgoing people with support, is that it creates a more positive view of you as an employer to those who remain.
