With the increased rates of downsizing, rightsizing, redundancies and layoffs, particularly during the 1980’s and 1990’s, businesses increasingly found a need for some form of assistance in reducing the trauma of redundancy for both departing employees and those who remain. Indeed, research shows that losing one’s job is one of the most stressful experiences a person can face other than death and divorce.

The ‘HR Work’, offers ongoing support, as it is often the case that after the individual has not been able to find a new job after searching for a number of weeks that they need the most help. Many companies will stop providing support after an allotted time although the ‘HR Work’ provides support for as long as the individual needs it.
