For Companies

Companies that embrace change and foster creativity and innovation are the ones most likely to succeed.

Companies are becoming more agile, but with that agility comes change and the need to think about how to continue to invest in their biggest business asset; people.

We can support people across your entire organisation, from individual team members and frontline staff to your senior managers, directors and executives.

Whether you are looking for Outplacement to support people transitioning out of the organisation, Executive Coaching to ensure a smooth transition for a senior person into a new role or to take on new challenges, or Career Coaching to help your middle managers and team members with engagement and wellbeing during times of business transformation, we can help.

Outplacement programmes

Where re-deployment is not an option an Outplacement Service has become an essential choice for many organisations that believe in supporting those employees who are transitioning, whether by choice or involuntarily.

We do not believe there is a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach when it comes to outplacement. Each organisation will have different needs, depending on the seniority of departing staff and the numbers involved.

Our Individual, Executive and Group Outplacement Programmes have been designed to help you to find the right level of support for your people. Within each there are different options available with regards to programme duration, the services included and the fees allowing you to tailor the programmes you offer to your staff so that they fit your requirements and budget.

Benefits of Outplacement

  • Protecting brand and reputation: being seen to do the right thing goes a long way. There is no statutory requirement to provide outplacement but those companies that offer it are sending a positive message about how they treat their departing people
  • Showing you care: people leaving you have contributed to the success of the organisation and giving them outplacement support ensures that they have the best possible chance of finding the right job in as short a timescale as possible
  • Retaining and attracting quality talent: seeing their departing colleagues being treated fairly and given the help they need will increase the loyalty of your remaining employees, helping both to retain the people you need and when recruiting for new talent
  • Protecting your HR team: a good outplacement provider will support your HR team helping to make their frontline role a little easier.
Our personal 1:1 outplacement and career transition programmes are created around each person’s situation and their specific needs. Consultations with their coach can be face-to-face, by telephone or via video call.

Individual Programmes typically offer practical support such as:

  • Writing CVs that work for both online and traditional applications
  • Creating a LinkedIn profile and advising about online personal branding
  • Job search strategy and techniques
  • Coaching and preparation for upcoming interviews
Underlying all the practical work is the foundation of our approach: the personal support of a career coach. Our coaches help people to come to terms with the experience of redundancy, discuss what next and identify longer term options.

Sometimes ‘bite-size’ support to write a CV or LinkedIn profile, or perhaps to prepare for an interview, may be all that is needed.

In addition, our online job search package, i-horizons, is also available with access to job search tools, psychometric assessments and exercises designed to help someone identify their strengths, and help in finding the right career choice for them.

Coaching support can continue beyond a job offer. Our coaches will help to assess the job offer package, work with each individual to develop a plan for the first 90 days and continue to provide guidance and support when it is needed to ensure a successful transition into their new role.

Executive Outplacement provides senior individuals with the opportunity to gain clarity around their next career move, whether that is seeking another executive role or advancement, a change of direction, self-employment or a portfolio of non-executive director, trustee and consultancy roles.

We provide advice and support at every step of the way, determining career and personal goals, identifying unique strengths and future career options, preparing for the job market and supporting each individual through their campaign, for as long as it takes.

Your senior executive will be matched with one of our most experienced director level coaches who understands the complex requirements of senior leaders and the ‘know how’ of top-level recruitment.

Programmes run generally for 6 or 12 months and our guarantee is that we will work with each executive to create a bespoke programme designed specifically around their needs and ensuring the right level of support and coaching to help them transition to the next stage of their career.

We have been providing outplacement support to groups of people, both large and small, for more than 25 years.

Our traditional outplacement programmes are still widely used by organisations looking for support following large-scale site closures or restructurings. Made up of half-day and one-day group workshops that cover the key issues of job search and career transition, they are supported by a range of add-on follow-up services, such as individual 1:1 sessions with our career coaches.

Our digital-led programmes – comprising a range of webinars and virtual 1:1 support delivered via video conferencing and complemented by online resources – have become the ideal choice for organisations looking for a more varied and adaptable approach, especially where people are working remotely or across multiple sites and sometimes in different working patterns and time zones.

If you are looking for outplacement support for your people please do contact us to discuss your requirements and how we can help. High quality outplacement services will become increasingly crucial for those people facing redundancy in an uncertain job market as organisations embark on business transformation in a post Covid-19 world.

For those companies that care about their people, New Horizons is a perfect fit. We have 25 years’ experience of providing tailored career transition advice and support to staff at all levels.

We provide one-to-one expert coaching to assist individuals or groups of executives to evaluate their skills and strengths, and to encourage whatever revisions might be required in their mindset in order to allow them to take control and manage their own careers and lives.

Coaching

Career coaching provides a uniquely challenging and yet supportive working partnership that benefits the individual and the organisation in which they work. It helps people to decide what they want out of life and their career, and is particularly useful at times of change – in preparation for a promotion, a change of role, direction or responsibilities – perhaps even retirement.

Focusing on strengths, skills, values, needs and aspirations, our career coaches work with people to review their current and future career paths and options. We provide the tools, the resources and the experience that will give people the edge, building the foundations for a successful transition and creating a practical career action plan.

Our coaching programme helps people to challenge their own thinking and assumptions, and elicit new insights. In this way, people become more able to make smarter career decisions based on an in-depth analysis of their career profile and options.

Our experienced coaches can help to:

  • Identify someone’s key strengths and skills
  • Recognise their core values and specific needs
  • Build their confidence and self- esteem
  • Establish a career path
  • Develop the tools and resources they need to be successful
  • Feel supported and motivated in a challenging, competitive job market
  • Navigate through difficult career decisions

Our team can work with you to develop the most appropriate coaching programmes to focus on an individual’s leadership development or career progression, or we can help you in building higher-performing teams of people.

We’ve worked with people across a huge range of industries and sectors including energy, media, insurance, technology, IT, transport, public sector, non-profit, leisure and hospitality.

For those who are new to an organisation, or who are taking on new challenges Executive Coaching enables people to explore new perspectives, overcome obstacles, change thinking that may be holding them back and build confidence and resilience.

Our team of executive coaches support and challenge your senior people in a confidential and safe environment.

The benefits can include:

  • Improving communication, interpersonal and influencing skills
  • Building a leadership ‘brand’, increasing presence and impact
  • Improving personal and working relationships
  • Developing agility, creativity and resilience
  • Increased well-being, motivation and engagement

Executive Coaching brings out the best in your senior managers and leaders, driving their personal performance and that of their teams.

Everyone benefits from working with a career coach at different times during their career. Acquisitions, mergers, restructures and transformational change all create uncertainty for people affecting their engagement and well-being and raising questions about whether they are in the right job.

Career coaching helps people to decide what they want out of their career and their life. It is particularly useful at times of change – promotion, a change of role or direction, new responsibilities or even retirement.

Those who could benefit from career coaching will include:

  • People who are struggling with change or new responsibilities
  • People who are not performing or who are not engaged
  • People who have lost their energy or ‘mojo’
  • People you want to retain but think they may be in the wrong role
  • People who should probably leave you but who don’t have the confidence to have that conversation

Career coaching helps people to assess their professional situations with a greater degree of honesty. We help people to think strategically about their current role and how they are performing, recognising how they may be blocking their own success.

Focusing on key strengths, skills, values, needs and aspirations our coaches work with each individual to help them get clarity on their way forward and develop the right mindset to achieve their goals.

It is never easy when a business is forced to reduce headcount but I know that with the assistance of New Horizons, any employee we put in contact with Isobel and her team get all the support they need while going through the ordeal of losing the security of their job. New Horizons provide a safety net that supports and guides people through an individually tailored programme to secure their next position or do something completely different, as quickly as possible. All feedback I have received has been extremely positive. I’d like to thank New Horizons for the assistance, support and service shown to our employees during this time. In my 30 years of experience, New Horizons provides the best outplacement support of any company I know.
