Our Partners

Our Partners

Although we can provide a comprehensive service from our existing team, we recognise that in some areas you need more detailed expert advice. So, we have teamed up with those organisations we consider to be some of the best in the business for providing additional services in the areas of Health & Safety, Cloud-based HR Systems, Data Protection and Outsourcing Support as part of our Outplacement service.

We create a Project Team with the relevant individuals from within these organisations, and add them to our own SYLO | Beyond HR. experts, take your brief and then ensure we deliver integrated solutions and results, every time.

A brief synopsis of what each of these organisations can provide is covered below. Please contact us on 01844 216290 or enquiries@sylobeyondhr.com if you would like to discuss any of these services further.

Outplacement - Allen Associates

 Helping you to support your redundant staff

If your organisation has had to make the difficult, but necessary decision to let people go, you will almost certainly want to help them prepare for today’s highly competitive jobs market. Outplacement support can make all the difference.

Collaborating with Specialists

We have teamed up with SYLO | Beyond HR. – an award-winning, Oxfordshire-based consultancy – to bring you a range of specialist Outplacement Services and Support.

With so many organisations now looking to restructure their workforces, more and more people are facing redundancy. Outplacement Services can make a real difference to employees who have lost their jobs as well as their employers who, in our experience, almost always want to do the right thing by the individuals affected while reassuring the rest of their workforce that they care.

What is Outplacement?

Outplacement Services provide professional direction and guidance to employees leaving an organisation and who need support in understanding their options as well as practical advice on what to do or where to go next. Organisations that care deeply about their employer brand and invest in their people are often keen to support selected staff members as they transition back into the jobs market at this challenging time.

A Choice of Support Packages

SYLO | Beyond HR’s support packages incorporate a wide variety of activities which are delivered through bespoke, online sessions. They are tailored to suit each person’s individual needs and range from skills analysis, CV writing, interview preparation, confidence-building, and transition support to re-training, self-employment options and even retirement. One-to-one coaching is also available together with specialised assessment tools.

There are different packages available, depending on whether the requirement is for personal support, group support or to include a coaching and mentoring element.

Why invest in Outgoing Employees?

Even in the most challenging conditions, most organisations want to do their utmost to protect their brand reputation and demonstrate that they are socially responsible employers. By providing Outplacement support and services to affected employees, employers / businesses are sending out a strong signal to the individuals as well as the rest of their workforce that they care about their people and are seen to be living their values.

Outplacement provides outgoing employees who may be a particularly low ebb, with a positive focus and much-needed support during what is often a very difficult time.

What our clients think
  • The coaching sessions I had with Sally were hugely empowering, nurturing and constructive. Sally provided a wonderful and safe space in which I could reflect on where I am and where I want to be. She helped me work through and build practical strategies, laying down a personal plan for how to progress and reach my goals. I would recommend SYLO’s services to anyone looking for a tailored and forward-thinking approach to professional and executive coaching.

I have a bird’s eye view of it all.

The SYLO team that I have worked with have been very fast, efficient and extremely professional and I cannot recommend them more highly.
