Remote outplacement – Coronavirus COVID-19

Glide Outplacement has the technical capability to provide effective and productive remote career transition support, wherever your location, if preferred.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) – adapting to change

This is particularly relevant as the international Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis unfolds.

The potential impact on the health of individuals, as well as the impact on business, is of course at the forefront of everyone’s concerns.

Traditional outplacement firms require clients to be within a certain geographical radius of their offices.

However our approach is driven by clients’ requirements and individuals’ career transition and job search needs.

We offer the flexibility of both traditional and remote outplacement and coaching options.

Flexible remote outplacement options

We’re equipped to support people wherever their location, across Australia and New Zealand.

Our outplacement consultants can meet people on or off-site, in cities and regional locations such as Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth and Canberra.

The benefit for businesses and employees is minimal disruption to their day.

Business continuity

With the current Coronavirus situation, we can still support career transitions if the government or employers put in place self-isolation, quarantine or travel restrictions.

Glide Outplacement has implemented a range of business continuity plans and infectious disease management protocols to prepare for the possible impacts of the virus.

This will ensure we can continue to provide the same level of service we currently provide as a remote support option, if clients prefer.

Remote outplacement tools

We’ve reviewed and extended our tech capabilities to ensure we can continue to provide a high quality, reliable service during the COVID-19 outbreak.

Remote working tools we use enables us to deliver a full service outplacement offering include:

• Video conferencing
• Cloud storage
• Communication
• Phone
• Email
• Online resources.

Updated emotional counselling

We have also adapted our training programs to take into account social isolation as a result of remote working, and have tailored our support to mitigate this.

Moving forward

While the situation in Australia is currently under control (as at 14 April 2021), it is worth bearing in mind that in a forecast of the worst-case scenario, the Coronavirus outbreak could last many more months.

Our focus throughout will remain on providing high-quality, outcomes-based outplacement services, delivered by a long-established Australian company you can trust.

Supporting people, either following redundancy or who are at a professional crossroads, will continue to be our priority.
