Is there a corporate responsibility to help redundant workers find a new job? According to former PM Kevin Rudd, Telstra has a big job on their hands.

    The challenge has moved on from simply providing support to displaced workers to now ensuring that the diverse needs of impacted employees are catered for.

    Mature age workers, with over 20 years tenure in an organisation have a unique set of needs in relation to adapting to change and making a successful transition. Redundancy impacts on their identity, their health, their financial plans and their realistic career options going forward.

    Fortunately many organisations are adopting this approach. Sageco has been delivering our Envisage program to many organisations who inevitably face challenging times and need to make tough decisions. If the right approach is taken and tailored support provided, it can often turn into a good news story for the company AND the employee.

    It is not just redundant Telstra workers who need support, it is all people who have been made redundant, Redundancy impacts on their identity, their health, their financial plans and their realistic career options going forward.
