Just because you are looking for great value you don’t need to compromise on quality. We don’t “sheep dip” people – we treat them as individuals. Our group outplacement programmes are always designed so that people share a learning journey but never feel they are just part of a crowd. Our workshops, for example, are kept to a size where the facilitator has the ability to address individual needs and concerns. And by factoring in 1-2-1 time we make sure even the most sensitive issues can be discussed in a professional and confidential environment.
All our workshop leaders are practising career consultants so are fully up to speed on the latest trends in the employment market. Our materials are continuously updated and can be quickly tailored to reflect different levels of staff, specific job or industry groups and the nuances of regional job markets.
Chiumento has nearly 20 years’ experience supporting employers through large-scale outplacement programmes. Past projects have included everything from closing call centres to disbanding IT teams and the closure of port installations.
Whatever the level or type of staff involved, we have the experience and agility to build the perfect programme. We are also experts in supporting HR through what can be emotionally charged, pressurised and time critical projects. Our team includes several HR professionals who’ve managed these projects from the client side – so you’ll always feel you are secure and supported.
Our workshops are all led by practising career consultants rather than trainers – ensuring latest advice on the realities of the career market. We recommend delivery in group sizes of about 12 – which we find offers great value while still allowing the consultant to deal with individual needs.
All our workshops are designed in a modular format so that we can deliver in a way that suits the audience and the organisation. In the past we’ve accommodated everything from part time working to 24 hour “continental shift” patterns.
