thesisposted on 2022-03-28, 23:52 authored by Penelope A. Faure
Organisational restructuring and redundancy have become a common experience for many employees, including those in managerial and executive roles. In many organisations employees are provided with outplacement services to help them navigate their career transition effectively and find a new role as quickly as possible. Using a mixed methodology, this set of three studies seeks to confirm key factors contributing to a successful career transition. The findings presented here contribute to enhancing the quality of career transition for employees affected by redundancy. The results also suggest ways to support the work of outplacement consultants, by providing guidance on effective strategies to navigate this uncomfortable yet valuable experience.
