Outplacement Case Studies and testimonials
UPC Media, Maidstone
The Development Company provided on-site support for 12 hours per day to ensure staff in this 24/7 TV studio had ample opportunity to gain benefit from the drop in service. We provided workshops, career clinics, psychometric profiling and one to one coaching to 250 staff who were losing their jobs as the site was closing.
Tricia Holmes, HR Manager said It was just the caring service our people needed. Working 9-5 was not an option here as we offer a 24 hour TV channel. The Development Company were just right for the project. Thank you.
(Tricia is now at Chello Broadband).
NRES (National Research Ethics Committee)
We provided one to one coaching to enable an individual to move on from redundancy.
“I’ll kick off with an apology: sorry for not offering you a drink on Friday afternoon – I was so engrossed I forgot and the afternoon positively flew by. I have to say this speaks volumes for your skills – I don’t think I’ve ever attended a training day/event where I haven’t thought about lunch and coffee breaks on every hour on the hour – I am a bit of a caffeine addict, so I must’ve been interested. It was all quite fascinating. After I’d said goodbye to you I walked back to my office feeling 8 feet tall. Thank you so much, especially for coming all this way – hope you had an uneventful trip home.
I can’t wait to get to work on my CV and mind map. I may well seek further advice… You opened my eyes to all sorts of things and I still feel confident two days on – very impressive. I’m still in ‘I’m OK – You’re OK’ mode and I’m working hard to maintain this mind-set. Thanks for all your helpful advice – I now feel that I can face the world. I know that there is the perfect job out there for me – just have to narrow down the range. Someone, somewhere is going to be very lucky to have me!!!”
