Job Loss & Career Transition Support

A job loss can be devastating for an employee. Their adjustment becomes even more difficult when they feel loss, have no future prospects, and/or not sure how to move forward. Being in such a state for a period of time will likely increase one’s sense of anxiety, depression, anger, and overall despair.

Our therapists and job transition specialists can help your employee/member in the following manners:

  • Transition Adjustment Counselling – Help the employee work through and cope with their grief, loss, and transition from the job loss
  • Career/Occupational Assessment – Help the employee explore options for a new career, profession, and/or specific jobs by assessing the employee’s interest and aptitude for different types of tasks and professions.
  • Career/Job Change Preparation – Work with the employee to consider and refine their options for viable new employment or career, make preparations for employment/career change, as well as establish a plan of action on how to best move forward to successfully attain new employment or career.

For an employee who may be losing their job, offering an outplacement service that includes vocational/aptitude assessment, transition adjustment counselling, and career/job change preparation can help the employee to 1) ease the psychological impact of their job loss and 2) transition quicker and more successfully into their new situation. Such gesture of care will also help to mitigate the risks associated with employee termination.

Career/Occupational Assessments

Career/Aptitude assessments can be extremely helpful for your employees/members who may be:

  • unsure whether their existing profession is suitable for them
  • considering a change in profession or career
  • facing a termination of employment

Insight offers a multitude of interest, aptitude, career tendencies, work dynamics, and non-clinical personality assessment tools that can help the employee/member gain a better insight into their professional aptitude, interest, strengths, and limitations. This in turn can allow the employee/member to make a more informed decision when considering a career/profession/employment option or change.
