Dismissal of an employee

Assistance with dismissal in South Holland, Rotterdam and The Hague

Dismissing an employee is a drastic event, but sometimes unavoidable. When an employee sees their income cut off, and the employer and/or HR professional has to deliver the bad news, it stirs emotions on both sides. These emotions often get in the way of a good resolution when both parties stand up for their interests. But what is a good way to finalize an employee’s resignation? By not taking any chances and getting good advice, more is possible than you think. Panthion’s advisors help employers and employees in South Holland settle the layoff in a humane manner.

When dismissal is inevitable

Both employer and employee will always prefer to avoid dismissal. Because no one is waiting to be told they are no longer needed or to have to communicate this to someone else. Therefore, a layoff is often stared at until it is truly no longer possible, as it often results in high running emotions. A layoff, then, is something that must be processed. It is a grieving process for the employee, but also for the employer. A layoff must have a place before looking forward again.

Resignation employee requested?

Once dismissal is requested, mediation or hiring a lawyer is often the next step. This can result in a protracted conflict, when it is best for both parties to be able to make a fresh start as soon as possible. High-running emotions often get in the way of that realization. With the help of an outside party to guide the termination process, you have the opportunity to part ways in a smooth manner.

Resignation assistance

Because both parties are emotionally involved in the dismissal and inexperienced in the whole dismissal process, the question becomes “do I want the bottom line or just a nice new job? often not asked. Panthion has experienced consultants in Rotterdam and The Hague who can provide advice to both parties. They are familiar with all the rights and obligations surrounding dismissal and know what emotions can be involved. Because they are not emotionally involved as outsiders, they can manage the dismissal process. By taking into account different wishes and interests, they professionally and transparently assist employer and employee in making the right choices during a dismissal.

Added value

Our support saves you time and therefore money. Hours you would otherwise need to master the constantly changing laws and regulations. In addition, the risks when it comes to employment contracts, for example, are not always easy to oversee and can thus become unintentionally costly. We are happy to take these tasks off your hands, leaving you more time to do what you really need to do: business. We also work with an employment lawyer for additional support.

"I liked the outplacement process at Panthion. The practical and goal-oriented approach helped me well in making the right choices in my job search and prepared me well for my job applications. Eventually, this quickly led to a new job. Ultimately, of course, you have to do it yourself, but Panthion helps you get started well, and gets you thinking differently about what is important to you and your career."
"After being laid off last fall after more than 30 years due to a reorganization, I found Panthion willing to help me look for a new job. From the very first meeting, I felt I had made an excellent choice. Positive, realistic and stimulating were the first experiences where Panthion's career counselor put me on the right path. After being inactive in the job market for so long, some help and coaching is very important. In 2 weekly steps, I shaped my plans and prepared for my next step. With clear feedback, encouragement and expert advice, Panthion supported me."
"For many years I have enjoyed working with Panthion/ViaMensa. Outplacement and 2nd track processes for the Safety Region Rotterdam are carried out qualitatively and with good results. In addition, I can always spar with Rik in finding customized solutions for our employees which I find valuable. Honest, reliable and professional, the way I should expect and get!"
"We asked Panthion to fill a position as a temporary underpinning of our team. Panthion presented us with enthusiastic interim professionals within three business days. In the end, our chosen professional was able to start within two weeks. Top notch support!"
"I transferred from a municipality through a one-year mobility shift. Within seven months, Panthion placed me with a new employer. This really should have happened to me years earlier...."
"After a reorganization, our HR team had to be reshaped. Panthion not only successfully redeployed much of our "old" team, but also found three new candidates who will shape our HR team of the future. To the great satisfaction of management and staff."
