We’ve all found 2020 challenging and as a result, we are likely to see businesses making redundancies for some time to come.
Thankfully there are various Government schemes that businesses can take advantage of to support during turbulent times. One such scheme we are able to assist with is the Skills Support for Redundancy program.
Skills Support for Redundancy is funded by the European Social Fund and Education and Skills Funding Agency to provide training and skills to employees facing redundancy. This will benefit the employee by giving them key skills, formal qualifications, interview advice, CV writing, job applications, and more. By providing employees with the opportunity to upskill, businesses will gain from an enthused and engaged workforce and the support of our training division through the difficult process of redundancy at no cost to the company.
“Although this has been a challenging time, one of the positives has been having Siamo Training on-site to support the workforce. We initially underestimated the importance of having such an asset and quickly witnessed how this allowed workers to not only heighten their current skill set but develop new ones.” – Client quote.
David Bacon, Siamo Training said: “This funded service is one business should not miss! By upskilling and supporting employees through a stressful time we are able to build confidence and ease concerns about being made redundant, this can be particularly important for businesses that will need to complete and fulfill operations up until those employees’ contracts come to an end. It is also vitally important to ensure that employees feel valued by the business and are able to go forward with confidence.”
