The benefits of a redundancy buddy

One of the benefits of working with a career coach after redundancy is you have an accountability partner, someone who will hold you to account and keep you moving forward with your goals.

Not everyone has access to a career coach and so finding a buddy who could be a work colleague who is also leaving, or someone from your network in a similar situation, will help you to hold each other to account.

Another benefit of a buddy is you have someone to reach out to, someone who understands what you’re going through and can offer support on those days when you don’t feel like facing the world.

In my experience, individuals will more easily let themselves down with their commitments than they will let someone else down, which is why a buddy can make a big difference in the days, weeks or months after redundancy.
