Downsizing? 

Retrenching?

Restructuring?

Assist affected employees with this guide to career transition.

The effective and speedy transition of a separated employee to a desired outcome depends on many things. Well-defined goals and realistic objectives are essential and their achievement is largely dependent upon the approach of the individual and his/her interaction with our trained consultant. Based on our book entitled "A Bend In The Road - A Guide To Career Transition", ours are comprehensive programmes commencing at the ‘pick-up stage’ of retrenchment, working through the career progression process and culminating in the achievement of defined objectives. Focusing on the career transition phases of Separation, Preparation, Communication and Negotiation, we offer:

Up to eight individuals take part in our 2-4 day Group Outplacement Programmes, during which time discussions are held and exercises are completed, relating to the career transition phases. In addition to group exercises which allow for an element of synergy and support, 'one-on-one' time is set aside for each participant, to assist them with personal issues and address concerns that arise during this phase of transition. Email us for more information.

 

Our Consolidated Outplacement Programmes are made up of four meetings, held between one of our consultants and the separated employee, offering extensive email and telephonic support throughout the duration of the programme.  Programmes can also be packed into 2 days, depending on each participants' personal circumstances. 

Email us for more information.

 

Our Extended Programmes are designed for more senior members of staff and deal with the same phases of career transition as the above programmes, but in a more complex and personalised manner. Email us for more information.

 

A BEND IN THE ROAD - A GUIDE TO CAREER TRANSITION

 

The effective and speedy transition of a retrenched Employee to a desired outcome depends on many things; well-defined goals and realistic objectives are essential, with their achievement being largely dependent upon the approach of the individual.

 

After many years' experience gained in assisting retrenched employees through the DMA Group's career transition programmes, Derek and Ross Mengel have realised that unemployed individuals don't have the time or inclination to become embroiled in exhaustive dissertations on job search. Through this book they have attempted to provide the reader with a summary of the concepts they see as most pertinent, commencing at the 'pick-up stage' of retrenchment, focusing on the career transition phases of Separation, Preparation, Communication and Negotiation, and culminating in the acceptance of a new and satisfying challenge.

 

Based on the premise that retrenchment is not the "end" of the road but, indeed, a "bend" in the road, an opportunity for exciting new beginnings and the realisation of a fulfilling career, this guide to career transition provides practical advice to readers on how to re-establish themselves, through a journey of discovery and accomplishment.
