The ‘Outplacement for Managers Experience’

is unique to the Irish marketplace and has been the key reason why we are the trusted partner by employers to help those impacted in a ‘personalised, professional and pragmatic way’ to find a new role that meets their needs. Most importantly, Harmonics 1:1 Outplacement programmes are not limited to 1, 3 or 6 months. This is a critical factor in the current changed economic environment when it will take longer to find a new role. A high percentage of individuals on every programme will not find a new job within 1 or 2 months, hence the importance of coaching support which is not timebound.

Our Approach is Personalised

During what is a time of forced change and uncertainty, the Harmonics Outplacement for Managers Experience’ starts with an initial introductory phone call from Joyce Jackson our Programme Manager to put people at ease.  A trained coach herself, Joyce builds a personal connection and provides a safe space for people who may wish to offload their immediate emotional, career and financial concerns.

Our Goal is to Understand Immediate Needs

When people face future job uncertainty, we know from neuroscience that the brain fills with cortisol which creates fear and anxiety. People are worried and need support in three key areas – career – what to do next and where to find a job?; financial – how long will my money last?; emotional – how is this impacting me emotionally? Harmonics have the expertise within our Outplacement Coaching Team to provide support in all three areas.

Please call us to find out more on the many specific 1:1 Programmes available.

3 Factors when considering a 1:1 Outplacement Partner

  1. Not Timebound – On average, 4 out of 10 people availing of a 1 Month Outplacement Programme with a Global Provider, do not find a job before the Programme Support ends. This leaves them dissatisfied and not supported to find their next role. At Harmonics, our Programmes are not timebound – it’s about the end result.
  2. A Real Person to speak with – People who lose their jobs want to speak to a Career Coach who is experienced and understands their situation. Unlike, Global Outplacement firms we DO NOT send an anonymised intro e-mail from a Digital Assistant offering access to a suite of technology options. The ‘1:1 Harmonics Outplacement Experience’ starts with an initial introductory phone call from Joyce Jackson, our Programme Coach Manager to reassure and select the right coach fit.
  3. Sensitive to each situation – We know each person losing their job has unique needs, hence we lead with the personal touch. This is different to Global Outplacement firms who send a link to a global technology platform with support if requested from a careers’ advisor. Consistent feedback from our clients is we understand and deal with each personal situation

Working with Bernie was truly life changing for me. I began my professional relationship with her after taking some time out of work to care for family. I had modest ambitions to start my own business, no idea where to start, and a fear that it was not possible to "have it all". Bernie brought out the best in me. She brought to the fore, potential and confidence that were already there, but I had hidden them away for a number of years. Now, less than 6 months later my new business is up and running, and I have my first client. Turns out, it may be possible to have it all, and to constantly better your fulfilment in life! Rather than changing my life for me, Bernie taught me how to change my own, which has been so powerful. I would highly recommend Bernie as a coach

Engaging with a coach requires trust, honesty and an open-mind, particularly when you are in the middle of change, and everything is a bit raw. I had the pleasure of working with Liam, whom I immediately felt comfortable with, and we quickly developed an open, and honest rapport. Liam asked the tough questions that I had probably avoided, but this meant I maintained an open mind, understood my strengths and the areas I need to work on. Whatever stage you are at in your career, or the challenges you face I would highly recommend Harmonics and Liam in particular.

I had the opportunity and pleasure to participate in the Self-Marketing Programme offered by Harmonics and hosted by Mary Roche. One of the Harmonics values is "constantly learning and bringing new ideas to the table", and I could not agree more with this. This workshop has truly been eye-opening, and now I know I am going in the right direction. Thanks to all the Harmonics team, and more specially to Mary Roche. Your professionalism and excellent coaching has made this possible. I have become more self-aware of who I am, what my skills are, how to understand their value and transferability, what makes me unique.

"I chose the outplacement support provided by Harmonics after the company announced the redundancy. I am glad that I made the right decision. At the beginning of the program, I received a warm welcome from Joyce Jackson who introduced the program and asked me about my background. A big thanks to her for facilitating all the arrangements. During the program, I had access to the Harmonics online career centre and participated in one-to-one career coaching with Neil Doherty. It was a great pleasure to work with Neil. He is very professional and supportive. He taught me many useful lessons and helped me to realise my strengths and overcome my weaknesses. With his help, not only have I secured a new job now but also formed a proper mindset on my future career development. Overall, it was a great experience. I highly recommend Harmonics to everyone. "

"I have just completed the Harmonics Career Stocktake Program facilitated by Bernadette Butler over the last number of weeks. I can honestly say it has been one of the most informative and enjoyable programs of learning I have completed in 41 years of working in industry. This program has really helped me to understand and focus on where I want to take my career next, while also taking me on a valuable and worthwhile journey of self-discovery. Bernie helped to hone my CV and LinkedIn presence, while also working through the exercises within the structured program with a sense of drive and, also great fun. The journey has brought me to a point of great certainty on where I want to go next, and what I can do, and what I can achieve. I would sincerely like to thank Bernie for her engagement, drive, perspective and professionalism in the facilitation and delivery of the program, the great personnel advice offered, and the sense of fun throughout the delivery. I would highly recommend Bernadette Butler as a career coach and, also recommend the Harmonics Career Stocktake Program"

"Having taken voluntary redundancy I didn't anticipate the need for any outplacement support as I felt completely at peace with my decision. What came as a surprise to me however was the complete swirl in my mind when faced with the conundrum of "what next?". Thankfully Mary, my appointed career coach came to the rescue and I honestly cannot thank her enough. I felt completely at ease in her presence from the get-go and felt like my story and journey mattered. She helped me navigate my way out of the swirl to a place where I now have complete clarity on next steps. As part of our programme Mary recommended a 1:1 with Liam, Harmonics Market Intelligence Specialist, and that was another significant part of the journey for me I have to say. Both Liam and Mary were a joy to work with and such incredible professionals and experts in their respective fields. I feel extremely grateful to have had time with them and I really cannot recommend the Harmonics team and service enough."

After taking redundancy from my previous job that I had been in for the previous 14 years I was very fortunate to work with Harmonics. Not having been in the jobs market for such a long time, I was in the position of having to create a CV and learn how to market myself again to potential employers. I was very hesitant at first around what the Coaching Programme would be like and whether or not the sessions would be worth my while. I am delighted I went ahead with them and found my Harmonics coach, Pat Kennedy, excellent in putting me at ease with the process while also challenging me in a positive way to think about how I want to move forward with my next career steps. Working with Pat, I went from being unsure of my next steps to feeling confident in what I can uniquely offer to a new company. The sessions with Pat where we worked on my career goals and future career path were invaluable to help me focus and set a path forward. I now have a CV and LinkedIn profile that properly highlight my skills, experience and achievements. The walkthrough the interview process and knowing how best to highlight my skills in interviews and put my best foot forward, improved my confidence and I have brought that into real world situations. I couldn’t recommend Harmonics and the career coaching programme any more highly as I would have found it a struggle to know where to start and I certainly wouldn’t be in the confident place that I am in now.

“Over the past 6 years I have been extremely fortunate to have several opportunities to work with the expert team at Harmonics, successfully achieving a number of professional goals including career development, financial planning for the future and more recently, applying for and securing a new role in the most challenging of recruitment environments, the COVID pandemic. Liam Croke was a trusted support in expertly guiding me through the headache of financial planning while always patiently translating the complicated foreign language that is finance! Neil Doherty was a supportive and encouraging mentor during a recent mid-career planning phase, again guiding me through the often daunting modern recruitment process in this current online environment. Always there with a helpful tip or words of encouragement, Neil always had the right response to any query! The Harmonics Online Career Centre is a treasure trove of information and advice, helpful articles, videos and guides on all topics career-related, an excellent resource. I would highly recommend the Harmonics experience!”
