We are delighted to announce that People Central Ltd have been awarded the Ministry of Social Development (MSD) contract to continue to provide subsidised support in 2013 to Hawke’s Bay people at risk of losing their jobs through redundancy.
Our track record in 2012 of getting 80% of participants back into comparable jobs within two months of learning that their job is redundant was a persuasive factor in winning funding for this year, especially in 2012 when the region’s economy and therefore job market was under acute pressure.
This year, we will also be able to deliver to more small employers as the criteria for qualifying for up to 100% subsidised support have been adjusted in employers favour. Please forward this onto any employers facing difficult decisions on staff numbers this year.
Whilst the benefits to displaced staff of re-entering workforce as swiftly and painlessly as possible are obvious, the benefits to employers include reduced legal challenge and grievance, the retention of key staff and their engagement during unsettling periods of uncertainty, maintaining the businesses positive image even in times of staff shrinkage and taking considerable pressure off line managers and others charged with making colleagues and friends redundant.
All employers need to do to access the programmes and funding is give us a call on the number below. We handle all MSD communications to set the process in motion and can begin supporting staff immediately.
Give us a call on 0508 736 753 to get started.
