How To Handle Redundancy...

Navigating redundancy can be tough, but research shows it also opens doors to new opportunities and growth.

Here are a few evidence-based tips on how to cope with redundancy:

Embrace the Change:
The British Psychological Society found that people who view job loss as an opportunity for growth rather than a setback are more likely to find success in their next roles. Take this time to reassess your career path and explore new avenues.

Stay Active and Connected:
The Mental Health Foundation UK suggests that physical activity can improve mental health by reducing anxiety, depression, and negative mood. Furthermore, maintaining and strengthening professional connections can provide valuable emotional support and job leads during this period of transition. Remember, you're not alone - there are others who've been in your shoes and can provide support and advice. LinkedIn, professional forums, and industry events can serve as excellent platforms for staying connected.

Continue Learning:
Stanford research emphasises lifelong learning for career resilience. Whether it's enhancing your current skill set or learning something entirely new, investing in yourself always pays off.

Practice Mindfulness:
Mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) techniques, backed by countless studies, can help cope with the stress of job loss. Mindfulness brings your attention to the present, reducing anxiety about the future.

Remember, it's okay to ask for help when you need it and to lean on your network during this time. Please share if you come across opportunities or resources that could help someone in transition.
