Outplacement & Redundancy Support Services Case Study - Event Management/Media Firm - Osborne
Outplacement & Redundancy Support Services Case Study – Event Management/Media Firm

The Background:

Due to an internal restructure within an Event Management/Media Firm, 12 individuals faced redundancy. This group were a mixture of senior managers and support staff. They reached out to Osborne for assistance with the affected individuals who were facing redundancy.

The Actions:

The package offered by Osborne based on the company’s decision were 3 Group Workshop sessions which were then followed up with up to 3 individual 1:1 consultations. We felt this was the best approach as it allowed us to cover the more general support topics in the group workshops while allowing a deeper dive into the individuals during their 1:1 consultations.

The 3 Group Workshops had covered the following:

  • Workshop 1 – Introduction to Osborne & the Outplacement Programme and CV Tips & Advice
  • Workshop 2 – Tips & Advice on Job Searching and creating/updating their LinkedIn profile
  • Workshop 3 – Tips on how to prepare for an Interview

After this, the Individual Consultations covered specific topics that enabled the individuals to go on a deeper journey of their career and their plans for the future:

  • CV Review
  • Interview Preparation/Coaching
  • Introduction to Relevant Specialist Recruitment Consultant
  • Supported through the Transition of leaving the firm
  • Networking Skills
  • Complimentary PC skills testing
  • Topics as required for the individual


The Results:

Following the programme, 8 individuals were equipped for their next steps. 2 individuals opted for the workshop and not the individual consultations while 2 individuals did not engage with the process.
