Whether a few people or a major downsizing, the effects of organizational change have a powerful and pervasive impact on your organization’s most valuable resource: your workforce. Today, “work” is a shifting concept, and “employment” encompasses many types of relationships. These changes are demanding but they offer tremendous opportunities for growth and transformation.
The Burke Group’s supportive career transition division manages all aspects of large or small downsizing projects including consulting, planning, implementation and follow-up. This can include the rapid establishment of Career Centres to accommodate large numbers of people. We provide the tools and techniques that are needed by both the employee and the employer.
Our career consultants work with individuals, providing the tools and techniques to allow them to refocus their careers, develop a personal marketing package and reach their potential.
The benefits of Career Transition / Outplacement services far outweigh the cost of implementing a quality internal program. Career Transition services provide benefit to both the employee and the organization. While financial benefits assist the employee during their transition, outplacement services enable them to make the transition more quickly and successfully. The organization saves in terms of resources, and legal, organizational and morale problems which can arise if career transition services are not provided or handled poorly.
In addition, pre-termination involvement with the organization ensures consistency in implementation of terminations, input in construction of the severance packaging, assistance in drafting a separation announcement and communication piece, and as a dignified departure for the affected employee with continued support.
Retaining key employees and achieving the results you’re looking for require that you nurture the talent in your organization and increase retention, productivity and performance. Our programs help organizations achieve business objectives by enabling your employees to enhance the key skills and behaviors of career success.
