CORPORATE WORKSHOPS FOR DOWNSIZING COMPANIES
When you announce your reduction in force, you want to immediately let it be known that your company will be providing outplacement assistance. Mir Garvy assists employees affected by downsizing or outsourcing—and has done so for Fortune 500 and Fortune 100 companies, as well as for mid-sized and small start-up companies positioning themselves for private equity placements, executive team changes, and mergers and acquisitions.
Downsizing or Outsourcing?
It takes a special kind of speaker to navigate the emotional climate of a room full of professionals who’ve recently learned they are being made redundant. As a speaker, Mir has been called “generous,” “articulate,” and “extremely knowledgeable.” She helps alleviate worry and frustration through the act of preparing for the job search. Questions are answered, fears are relieved, and next steps are outlined. Help your workers survive—and even thrive—during this transition, foster good will, and protect your brand and reputation, both within your organization and in your community by offering one of the following workshops.
Half- or Full-Day Resume Workshop
Bring Mir in to present this highly acclaimed workshop to help your employees who’ve been affected by a layoff. This workshop for up to 20 people blends classroom-style instruction, interactive dialogue, and hands-on breakout sessions. The full-day workshop includes one-on-one consulting with Mir in the afternoon, which ensures attendees will have a nearly complete, well-written, keyword-optimized resume by the end of the day.
Half- or Full-Day LinkedIn Workshop
In this workshop, Mir covers everything your employees need to know about LinkedIn and its importance in their upcoming job search. Designed for up to 20 people, the workshop is a deep dive into LinkedIn, and covers topics like how to write your LinkedIn profile, how to find hidden jobs on LinkedIn, and how to network more effectively. The full-day workshop includes one-on-one consulting with Mir in the afternoon and, for an extra fee, Mir will bring a professional photographer, who can take LinkedIn headshots on site.

The ROI on Corporate Workshops
According to Entrepreneur.com, investing in outplacement services to support your employees who’re affected by a reduction in force makes sense on a number of levels. By investing in your impacted employees’ career transition, you are placing them on confident paths to new careers, and helping them network smarter, navigate today’s online job search, and feel more prepared for interviews. Not only that, you’re also minimizing your company’s exposure to costly legal action, ongoing unemployment fees, and potentially damaging employee reviews that will hurt your brand. The ROI is real for the companies that have hired Mir in the past. Here’s just one example:
“Mir provided an excellent resume workshop for GSK US Finance employees. She was able to provide us with tools we could use to ensure our resumes successfully make it through applicant tracking systems when seeking external job opportunities while also standing out to human resources staff and hiring managers. Mir also provided invaluable insights on the current job market and hiring practice. She worked individually with each employee during and after the workshop as well. The workshop was extremely helpful for our team as we are in the midst of a reorganization where employees will be losing their jobs at GSK. I personally found her insights helpful, not only in writing my resume, but also in preparing for job interviews.”
