At Renovo, we understand that the needs of senior employees are often far more complex and diverse than those of lower level staff and that the outplacement support they receive should differ accordingly. With this in mind, we created the Renovo Executive Outplacement Support Programme, an enhanced package delivering support through additional channels that provides senior level employees with everything they need to move forward following redundancy. Here’s an overview of what benefits such a programme can deliver above a standard outplacement package.
Increased self-valuation and assessment
Whilst all of our clients have access to their own personal career coach for the duration of their programme, we recognise that often there may be fewer options open to senior executives. For individuals with great experience looking for specific roles, securing their next position can take more time, which is why we extend the length of time senior executives have access to their coaches. This allows greater time for individuals to consider their personal values and how they align with their short and long term goals. Ultimately, such self-assessment often leads to the discovery of new career directions and opportunities that high achieving individuals can pursue at a greater personal value.
More comprehensive profiling
Often, senior executives may find that psychometric profiling forms a key factor within an interview process. Invariably, those candidates who are unsure of what such profiling may indicate about their character or working styles are much less capable to emphasise their key selling points. We provide our senior clients with access to a broad range of advanced tools and services, each of which may be beneficial to them as individuals as well as potential employees. For example, the Wave Professional Styles Report explores an individual’s motives, talents and preferences in various critical work areas and provides detailed feedback from a qualified psychologist. This allows executives to pinpoint any significant areas for improvement in preparation for new job roles, and may even indicate the types of roles where they are most likely to find success.
Tangible job search support
Without a doubt, individuals who have carried out interviews themselves and made their own hiring/firing decisions will have stronger opinions on what makes a strong CV or what interview techniques are more likely to be successful. However, executive career support can help to put such knowledge into practice, or may help individuals to understand how their own practices differ from others’. Tangible support entails teaching executives how to exploit their industry networks for additional job opportunities, and how to align their needs with recruiters and connect with executive search specialists to learn of roles before they are widely advertised. Additionally, we can help senior executives to profile their ‘digital footprints’ and understand how these may enhance or hinder their career potential, before teaching them how to identify what actions will improve their online reputation.
Enhanced career journey
Standing out as a senior executive can be a difficult process. Typically, roles are fiercely competitive, and many organisations will choose to use professional organisations to select from a smaller pool of qualified candidates. Because of this, we provide senior candidates with the opportunity to access a more proactive placement service that draws on its extensive network across the UK to promote each individual’s talents. Approaches are always discreet yet proactive, and enable individuals to access senior positions before they are publicised. This can help them to secure an off-market position that is the right fit for them in terms of position, culture and future progression.
