Divorce IS Your Business
The Family Transition Company was founded to reduce the impact of divorce on the UK economy and the thousands of employees that go through divorce each year.
Between them, the founders have more than 60 years of personal and professional experience of divorce. They recognize the need to facilitate change in attitude towards, and support for employees going through divorce.
We believe that the divorce process can be executed better, without destroying a person and their family emotionally and financially. Divorce doesn’t just hurt families – it hurts companies too!
Research shows that divorce costs individuals, companies and the taxpayer over £50 billion a year through lost productivity, increased medical and legal costs, and increased need for benefits. A company with as few as 10,000 employees can lose as much as £25 million a year through lost productivity, absenteeism, presenteeism, resignations, recruitment and retraining costs, distractions and errors. Even a small company with 100 employees on an average salary of £25,000 stand to lose £230,000 a year. Can you afford to lose that every year?
Employers may offer discounts on legal services or provide access to mental health counsellors through employee assistance programmes. BUT, divorce isn’t a mental health crisis, it’s not even a legal crisis. It’s a life crisis, and The Family Transition Company can help both employers and employees have a more positive experience.
Studies show than an employee can lose 40% of the their productivity when going through a divorce for an average of 2 years. 10% of divorcing people either quit their job or are asked to leave.
Divorce, second only to death, is the most stressful and complicated event in life and it can be contagious. The negative energy can spread until it becomes toxic, negatively impacting your people’s productivity through absenteesim, presenteeism, and resignations.
When this happens, your HR team are left to tackle a complex issue they are not trained to manage. The Family Transition Company can provide resources and tools to help your team successfully navigate the fall-out of divorce in the workplace.
Divorce is the most expensive operating cost you don’t know you have. Let us help you and your employees get back on track.
