We support you when you are making redundancies

Businesses change and evolve, hard decisions are made and redundancies are part of reshaping organisations.

Redundancies are hard for everyone concerned. A lot of sleepless nights.

If you are having to make redundancies in your business, we can help you.

Redundancies can be handled well, employees can feel valued, and they can feel supported.

We can help you:

  • Communicate the business changes and tell employees their job are at risk

  • Support employees to move on, to prepare for life after redundancy and feel good about their next chapter

Just the Start Workshops by Another Door

Our ‘Just the Start’ workshops support employees who have been put at risk of losing their job. The workshop is designed to support employees through the redundancy process, encouraging open discussions in a safe environment, inspiration to start to think differently about it and practical help to start to move on.

Workshops that support your people to move on

Redundancy is not linear. You don’t get made redundant, dust off CV and go get another job. You go through many emotions, thoughts, worries, ideas, and the Another Door philosophy supports all the twists and turns involved. It provokes thinking, it encourages brave decisions, it’s optimistic but keeps it very real – we know this stuff isn’t easy.

We support and encourage people to have:

-      a fresh perspective on the future

-      clarity on what to do next

-      tools and techniques to use to move on

-      ideas for next move

-      support and know how to help take action needed

People leave knowing they have choices, they have options and that they can do whatever they want to. People leave with a little bounce in their step. We create hope. We provoke ideas, We encourage action.

What people say about our workshops

“Honestly, I wasn’t really in the mood but I went to the workshop and so glad I did. I came out of the workshop full of ideas and bouncing”

“Really enjoyed the workshop. Wasn’t sure what to expect but it was great. I have so much hope for my future”

“Earlier this year the business informed us that they would be closing down. I had never been made redundant before and nor had the majority of my colleagues. It was a very difficult and emotional time for us all, but we were lucky enough that the business wanted to make sure we had all the support we needed to get us through the process - that’s where Eleanor and Amanda’s workshop came in. They delivered sessions to all staff over the course of a week and a half and the feedback from staff was absolutely fantastic!!”

“Eleanor and Amanda made us feel at ease talking about how we felt and how to approach our worries and challenges moving forward. They made us see the positives around redundancy and that the feelings we were having were not unusual and we were not alone. They built up our confidence, there were tears but also a lot of laughs!”


“The support and advice that Another Door gave us was golden, not just within the sessions, but the online support network they offer after the sessions had finished was so helpful too.”

“I would urge any company that is issuing redundancies to bring in Eleanor and Amanda to help support their staff. They turned what could have been a very lonely and uncomfortable time, into a truly inspiring and supportive end to my time at in my role.”

“Amanda & Eleanor attended my workplace recently after being told by my employers that they had decided to close the business, thus activating mass redundancy for 100+ employees.  I was a little apprehensive about attending a workshop of this nature as I had the misconception that I had probably 'heard it' all before but I was pleasantly surprised at how they delivered engaging content through a relaxed, yet professional manner. They were both so supportive and offered great advice on how to gain that all important confidence back that I would need as I entered the daunting job market again. “

“I know the workshops were really well received at my company, and the fact that a lot of people who attended them are much better off is a testament to them both. For those reasons, I would have no hesitation in recommending this workshop to others who are going through the unfortunate situation of redundancy.”
