Our broad national span and personalized approach allows us to continually partner with a variety of organizations. tailoring each program to our client’s specific needs.

While start times will vary depending on each employee’s specific situation, we recommend starting the program as soon as possible. Clients currently on working notice have the added benefits of returning to their place of employment as well as their established networks in-between their scheduled sessions. Beginning the program early builds confidence in what is typically a time fraught with “unknowns”, decreasing stress and enabling your employee to transfer knowledge more effectively.

We offer three levels of recommended outplacement programs to best align with your employee’s unique needs. These include Foundational Level, Professional Level and Executive Level. By separating programs into established levels, it allows you the employer to quickly determine the depth and length of support your employee requires. We can then begin the customization process from there.

We can provide employers with an Employee Engagement Letter, upon request. This letter, which can be given directly to the employee upon termination, details the program you have selected for them, the benefits of engagement and the contact details for getting started.
