The Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) pre-planned the smooth career transition and exit of all employees, thus ensuring that they remained focused on high performance, Games-time delivery at the same time as considering their future career plans. ODA’s Career Transition and Outplacement Programme included tools such as an outplacement service, talent marketing events, CV writing and interviewing workshops, on-site transition coaches and one-to-one support. Key to the success were upfront exit dates, allowing individuals to plan for their departure, and support from the Senior Management Team which encouraged buy-in from employees and contributed to low attrition rates.
