Career Transitions

Constant change, the new normal

Telecoms, Media and Technology is synonymous with change. From start-ups to multi-national conglomerates, events such as M&A, outsourcing, market pressures and advances in technology often result in the need to reorganise. With change being so commonplace it’s no wonder that restructuring and redundancy is a fact of life.

As your business needs change, your team must develop and evolve too. There may be occasions however whereby a redundancy situation is unavoidable. In these circumstances, mecscomms can provide support to your business and those directly affected. We can also help remaining team members inadvertently impacted by an organisational restructure.

When an individual’s journey within your organisation must conclude and a redundancy situation is imminent mecscomms offer a bespoke outplacement service. We’ll help your existing team transition into new roles or departing staff to settle outside your organisation, allowing you to focus on moving forward with your business.

Supporting colleagues during difficult times

For many people a period of change can be difficult. This is particularly true if they have played an important part in the growth of your business. Staff welfare, maintaining morale and providing compassionate support to those affected by change is important during times of transformation. To help deal with these challenging scenarios mecscomms has devised a career transition and outplacement consultancy service to help individuals and companies embrace, adapt and grow in response to change.
