Career Transition/ Outplacement

Transitioning employees to the next steps in their careers

Job loss is one of the top 10 most stressful life events. The immediate impact on the employee and family can be very real and the long-term impact of extended job loss can be even more significant.

Given the serious impact of job loss and the rapidly changing environment of job search, progressive organisations of all sizes provide impacted employees with Career Transition services and Outplacement.

Career Transition/Outplacement Coaching empowers your organisation’s transitioning employees to take the next steps in their careers. At the same time, these Career Transition services protect your company’s reputation and brand and show that you care about your employees.

We recognise that your people are your most important investment. They’re your brand advocates and your source for attracting new talent. This is why it is important to choose a reputable and experienced Career Transition/Outplacement partner who has a proven track record of working with organisations going through change such as downsizing, plant and office closures. No matter what your needs may be, our people-focused approach ensures positive outcomes for your brand and for your departing and remaining employees.
