As a specialist career transition provider, we recognise the increased uncertainty and challenge that Covid-19 is likely to cause the individuals we are currently supporting. In response, we have made the decision to extend the duration of all live outplacement programmes with immediate effect.
Of course, it’s impossible to determine the medium and long-term effects of Covid-19 on the economy and job market. In the short term, however, we instinctively feel it’s likely to impact the time it takes the people to get back to work, especially in sectors which have been significantly impacted by the crisis such as Retail, Hospitality and Travel.
With this in mind, we have made the decision to increase the length of access to some key components of support for a minimum of six months at no additional cost. The key components include unlimited access to Renovo’s Career Transition Portal - Workfriend and a series of 8 online Workshops which are available across all platforms including Mobile App. Individuals will also have a further six months access to a 24/7 Helpline operated by BACP trained counsellors to cover emotional and wellbeing support issues should it be required.
The extension for all existing participants is just one of several measures we have taken as business in response to the Covid-19 crisis. From here we will continue to monitor the situation and where appropriate make further adaptations to our outplacement solutions to ensure our clients and their employees feel supported during this difficult and uncertain time.
