Severance Pay and Finding Future Employment

Redundancy & Dismissal -Taking Stock

The first step in making plans for the future is to take stock of where you are now. This can be very difficult if you have spent a long time in the same job, with no real necessity to explore your skill set and how this might relate to finding future employment.

There is an easy way to assess and analyse where you are now - you can carry out a personal SWOT. This tool is often used in the workplace but can easily be adapted for your personal life. SWOT stands for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats. Carrying out a personal SWOT allows you to analyse your strengths and weaknesses and the opportunities and threats within your job. It is important that you are as honest as you can be during this process.

Strengths and weaknesses refer to your personal strengths and weaknesses. One of your strengths might be that you are a great team player. A weakness could be that you are a poor time keeper. Opportunities and threats are about the external environment to you. For example, an opportunity could be that a rival company has tried poaching you.

  • Assess your threats - has the company mentioned redundancy or job losses? Have you been warned about your performance? What was the outcome of your last review? How is the company changing and will this affect you? Is your job on the verge of becoming obsolete? Are you fulfilling all your job description or just the bits you like? Are you less experienced or educated than your colleagues?

After you have carried out the SWOT, the final stage is to make a plan. This plan has to use your strengths and take advantage of the opportunities you have flagged up. The plan will give you an opportunity to work on your weaknesses and neutralise impending threats. Be proactive, learn to blow your ...
