The British Heart Foundation Group Outplacement Project

Driven by the impact of Covid-19, coupled with an existing desire to create a leaner organization, The British Heart Foundation (BHF) was entering a consultation process that would sadly result in a significant reduction in headcount. They wanted to look after their leavers with compassionate and expert outplacement support but also needed a service appropriate to their not-for-profit budgetary constraints.

We listened carefully to BHF’s needs and provided an initial proposal that included a cost structure that was sensitive to the not-for-profit status of the organization. We then completed BHF’s competitive tender process, which included providing references from previous clients who had similar needs to give BHF reassurances that Connor was the best partner for their project.

Once awarded the tender, we worked closely together with BHF’s HR as a combined project team to carefully plan the most appropriate career transition support, taking into consideration the number of people impacted and what the right style and format of delivery would be.
