Evelyn Liston is the director of GrowingPeople and has worked with value-led organisations for more than 15 years. I have been able to use my experience and knowledge of career management in supporting employees and organisations in these sectors.
We are a relatively small company which is free from the overhead costs often associated with outplacement companies. As a result, we are able to offer a flexible, personalised, and cost-effective service to our customers.
We have considerable experience of working with individuals and organisations in the charity and the not-for-profit sector, and with companies with strong ethical principles and we understand and are empathetic to some of the challenges you are currently experiencing.
All organisations including those in the not for profit sector recognise the changing requirements of the economy caused by technological advancement and other factors. In response organisations need to be constantly changing and employees are required to adapt and learn new skills and adopt to different working patterns.
Employees are likely to have several careers in their lifetime - and career change will be the norm. Demographic changes have occurred, as well, meaning people are living healthier longer lives working well beyond normal retirement making career change ever more likely.
