Outplacement First has been asked by The Jockey Club to provide our people with support during this period of change. As a result we’re offering employees the opportunity to take part in workshops to help you over the next few months. This might be support for those of you who are directly impacted by the restructure, support in dealing with what is happening even though you aren’t affected or learning about ways to help friends and colleagues during this time and in the days and weeks which follow.
WHY IS MY EMPLOYER PROVIDING THIS SERVICE?
The Jockey Club wants to help you to navigate the upcoming changes. We appreciate that it is a difficult time and want to help you develop an awareness of the physical and emotional impacts that may take place, find ways to navigate through this period and take care of yourself. You don’t have to pay anything and the service is completely confidential.
WHAT WILL THE WORKSHOP COVER?
This workshop will help you develop coping mechanisms and increase your resilience. We hope it will help you to feel more confident and comfortable throughout the period of change. Over the course of the workshop you will discuss how change affects you and your colleagues both physically and mentally and how to help yourself and others.
WILL MY MANAGER BE ATTENDING WITH ME?
No, this workshop is for you and your colleagues to be able to talk openly and in confidence with a change specialist to understand your reaction to what is going on.
Managers will be able to join separate workshops designed to help them with their own challenges.
WILL WHAT I SAY DURING THE WORKSHOP BE CONFIDENTIAL?
Yes, the workshops are to be conducted in complete confidence.
DO I HAVE TO ATTEND?
No, it is entirely voluntary but we think you might find it useful.
WHO ELSE WILL ATTEND?
You will be allocated to a group with 14 of your colleagues. Outplacement First will try to group you based on location so that you know people in your workshop.
WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?
Outplacement First will send you an email in the next day or so inviting you to register for one of the three hour workshops. The sessions start on 6th October and are taking place through to the middle of November.
If you have any questions about this initiative, how it can benefit you or need any more information about any aspect of the service please call 0345 3409849 or email abigail@Outplacementfirst.co.uk. Outplacement First will be delighted to answer any questions you may have.
