Outplacement / Career Transition
In today’s economy, layoffs are a complicated yet frequent occurrence. For the employer, careful planning and flawless implementation are required to prevent erosion of the business, as well as the organization’s standing in the community. For displaced employees, high levels of unemployment leave many feeling that they have few options for alternative employment or that their careers have been derailed. For remaining employees, uncertainty levels can rise significantly and productivity levels may decline considerably. The bottom line: these situations can leave many individuals, whether leaving or staying, with a sense of frustration, fear and anxiety.

Our career consultants, experienced in virtually every industry, provide transition candidates with the type of support that helps them ease their anxieties and gain a better foothold on their next role or career path. Also, with the best consultant-candidate ratio in the field, candidates receive one-on-one, face-to-face assistance ensuring their programs are personalized to their specific situation. Additional resources, such as our proprietary online career portal, Momentum™, offer candidates 24/7 access to training modules and multiple tools for job search assistance, personal branding, resume writing, company intelligence database searches, networking, and more.
In addition, we assist employers with planning, implementation and post-layoff actions needed to support the organization’s ongoing business.

Post Termination Stress Counseling for coworkers
Job Loss for either one or multiple members of a team impacts those left behind in different ways and can sometimes present challenging issues that need to be addressed. Our experienced team can assist with this to ensure staff remain engaged and focused in their roles going forward. We help to manage the emotion and provide a pathway forward so those left behind can move on with confidence and commitment.
Redeployment, Transfers and Promotions
Transitioning into new roles, new departments, new careers, or new locations can be exciting and even challenging at times. To help employees transition and on-board to be productive more quickly, we offer multiple resources that help employers communicate changes, retrain workers, prepare employees for new roles, and manage integration within the organization. Our transition programs promote timely assimilation to bolster the employee’s confidence, morale and contributions to the organization’s success.
Spouse / Partner Relocation
Since most households today are supported by two working professionals, promotions or transfers requiring physical relocation could hamper a career. To avoid such a hardship and alleviate the worries of relocating employees so they can focus on their new endeavor, our career consultants located around the world assist trailing spouses and partners in transitioning their careers and adapting to their new environments.
“Retirement” no longer means that a person stops working; rather, it is considered a period of transition where an individual re-focuses and re-balances his or her lifestyle to align with personal circumstances. New Horizons – Mapping Your Life Options®, a special program for the mature workforce, helps employees prepare for this transition by assessing their retirement readiness and strategically planning for a future aligned with their changing lifestyle to bring renewed fulfillment. In working with coaches certified in New Horizons – Mapping your Life Options®, participants create a self-portrait of personal needs that guides them toward becoming fully invested in a new and rewarding lifestyle of their own design.
Before changes can be initiated within the workforce, employers must make strategic plans that ensure and enable the appropriate talent in the organization to achieve its strategic business objectives. Our workforce planning services assist businesses in creating strategies and road maps for changing workforce needs. Our experts help employers assess their workforce landscapes to determine what’s needed to successfully move the organization forward to advance its business success.
