Career Transition & Outplacement
Job loss hits hard for most people, whether they expect it, welcome it or dread it. It is a reality many do not want, and it can be very difficult to cope with, no matter the age or the experience.
Employers and employees need more than just technical advice and guidance, they deserve a good deal of empathy, care, and moral support.
For Human Resources and Company Executives
Planning employee departures is both administratively and emotionally difficult. Timing, ensuring everyone is on message and in the right place, is essential for a smooth job termination process. We take some of that added pressure away by offering key advice to the employer, assuring an error and incident free job termination process. We work with senior management to manage downsizing and provide in office, on-site support to departing employees, ensuring the employee understands what has happened, is treated with dignity and consideration, and rapidly begins the transition process.

Leading and managing people is a challenging responsibility: selecting the right individuals, providing proper alignment and feedback, handling conflict and tense relationships, stretching employee potential, introducing change, building succession, etc…
To be successful at managing and developing talent, one must act with clarity and sensitivity and devote the necessary time to addressing key HR issues. Good leaders are conscious of this and work constantly at improving their relational skills and their ability to deal effectively with people.
At times, they need external guidance, either to validate their views and intuition on a given situation or person, or to be accompanied by an experienced expert or facilitator.
Our consultants can help you with any facet of talent management, such as managerial assessment, team-synergy, leadership development, change management, succession planning, assisting you on specific initiatives and processes.
