In uncertain situations, you need a stable partner. As an experienced partner of human resources management and supervisory matters, we help companies carry out different kinds of adjustment measures.
We make sure that companies have enough time to support their remaining staff. We implement the whole process successfully and help organisations achieve a new beginning.
As a change security partner, we ensure that the Co-operation Act and legislation concerning change security are followed and that the staff feel seen.
Our services in situations of change
We support companies to move on from the situation of change. In practice, we help the company to ensure that the persons leaving the company can move on and that the employees remaining at the company know the expectations concerning them. We also support the supervisors and HR professionals at the company.
Support before and during cooperation negotiations
Cooperation negotiations involve a lot of legal technical details. We will make sure that what is prescribed by law is realised. At the same time, we also remember the human side of the situation.
We will help you to take into account both the legal requirements and the needs related to dealing with staff.
If necessary, we will also draw up a communication plan for the cooperation negotiations to ensure that communications will be consistent during the situation of change. Cooperation negotiations are always not only about people but also about money. A good plan makes it possible to minimise the company’s financial risks.
Support in lay-off situations
When employment relationships are terminated, the situation is difficult for both the supervisor and the staff involved.
Supervisor coaching ensures that the supervisor has the skills to handle the lay-off situation respectably.
Staff coaching is used to support those affected by the change in facing the difficult situation.
Support after lay-off situations
For the company, the situation of change does not end when the cooperation negotiations end. In the case of employees laid off permanently or temporarily, the conditions defined by law must be reviewed and applied in practice. In addition to the support measures required by law, additional support may be provided to those laid off to help them find new employment more quickly.
Rapid employment of laid-off employees reduces the financial disadvantages for the company. With our outplacement service, people who have been laid off will find employment and find a new direction in their career effectively through coaching, training and employment promotion measures.
People staying in the company after the changes may also need support even afterwards. Whether it be supporting supervisors or supporting experts, we will help you.
Overall coordination of change programmes
We offer turnkey change situation services for companies. This means that we assume overall planning responsibility for the situation of change. We do this taking into account the needs and wishes of the company, also making sure that all the aforementioned areas related to the change are taken into account properly.
Our customers' experiences with the service
"We feel that the best support we can give in the situation is to guide departing employees forward in their careers and support them in re-employment."
"Even though the group of those who were let go was quite challenging due to their different backgrounds, Sarasen's coach succeeded in his job excellently."
Individuals and work life are at the heart of our change security service
The end of an employment relationship after cooperation negotiations affects each person laid off differently. It is both fair and profitable to ensure that situations of change are handled as well as possible. In a well-managed situation of change, the persons laid off and dismissed can turn their focus from the change to the future.
When the company invests in promoting the employment of its laid-off employees, by organising things such as training or coaching and offering new job opportunities, the persons leaving the company regard the company in a more positive light. This means that the company’s reputation as a responsible employer is maintained.
The services and solutions offered by Saranen are based on a work-life-oriented approach and we provide the people we coach with individual support that mirrors our approach. This will help them advance in their careers.

How we have helped individuals in adjustment situations
After being in the same job for so long and not thinking about job-seeking, Saranen’s career coaching was definitely useful. Without the career coaching, I would not have known how to start looking for a job. I’m glad I went along!
At first, we went through my career and pondered the opportunities it could bring. The pandemic and the resulting unemployment put me in low spirits, but my coach helped me successfully see my potential. The most important thing is to find someone to talk to, so you can think together about what you should do.
The coaching gave me a lot of self-confidence, and the career coach taught me to bring out my best qualities. The professional and supportive approach was exactly what I needed after being laid off. The coach gave me tremendous strength and energy so that I could deal with the disappointment of losing my job and start looking forward in my career.
