SMP Solutions have been providing quality Outplacement and Career Transition solutions for many years. However, in these challenging times, many of your professional and long serving employees might be facing redundancy for the first time or doing jobs that, due to the Covid crisis, might not be needed for some while, if ever again. Regardless of seniority or length of service, more than ever, many people who are unfortunate casualties of redundancy, will need to completely re-evaluate their careers and lives in order to work through what to do next and need proven strategies to make it happen!
Why a 'One Size Fits All' Standard Approach is no Longer Ideal
The more standard Outplacement offering of CV writing, Job Search strategies, Job applications, LinkedIn profile and Interview Skills (which we also offer) is absolutely fine for departing employees who are looking to transition into similar jobs but it's definitely not ideal or the best use of your organisations budget, for all departing employees for the reasons highlighted above. The changing world calls for different, flexible solutions, especially tailored to the level of staff or employee length of service. .
What Makes This Course Different?
The 'Winning Through Redundancy' course has been specifically developed for forward thinking employers to support your professional employees to re-evaluate their careers and lives, as a result of redundancy and work through what to do next. They will learn how to turn threat of redundancy into a bright new future, following a proven, practical and empowering process that has helped to transform the careers and lives of 1000's of people, following redundancy.
Regardless of the reason, length of service or seniority, employees affected by redundancy are often lost in a 'career transition maze', not knowing which way to turn. As a result, without the right emotional and practical support, many people adopt a 'scattergun' approach without any real focus or succumb to 'transition paralysis', as they struggle with the 'emotional roller coaster ride'.
Following the success of his internationally acclaimed book, 'Winning Through Redundancy', SMP Solutions Managing Director, Steve Preston, a leading Career Coach and Career Transition Specialist, has repurposed and brought his inspirational book to life, to address these issues. Therefore, for consistency of branding, the course content has been created under Steve's Author Personal Brand, as The Career Catalyst.
Please note this course version is only available for employers, for Outplacement support options. The 'Welcome' video, when employees start the course, emphasises the course has been funded by their employer. Also, that such support it isn't a mandatory requirement, so the course should be valued by the departing employee as a real benefit from their employer to help them successfully transition their career.
Motivational Blended Learning Approach
The course is not theory but specifically designed to be a motivational, engaging, highly practical, empowering and invaluable career transition tool. The course consists of powerful digital content, using a blend of video, audio, textual and a wide range of empowering, highly practical downloadable activities from Steve's impressive toolkit.
Due to the way the course has been developed, there is a natural flow and Steve acts as both Career Coach and 'Course Guide' to help the user work through each module and lesson and get the best from the course.
Flexible Options & Pricing
Importantly, the course lends itself to being supplemented by bespoke Career Coaching options, which can be tailored to meet the needs of your budget. The group coaching option is the most affordable to maximise your budget, if you have enough people for your own cohort. Alternatively you you can add 121 personal coaching, with various bespoke options, depending on seniority and length of service or fund the 'course only' option.

You might also want to consider purchasing bulk supplies of Steve's 'Winning Through Redundancy' paperback book, as the ideal supplement to work in tandem with the course or in it's own right as a parting gift for loyal or valued employees.
