Outplacement Transition Program for Public Sector Employees

We understand that you are reaching out so that you have the information, tools, and the support necessary to make the best possible career decisions.

Changes of Government will always impact the function of existing employees. As part of these changes, the Treasury Board is mandated to provide support for individuals displaced during the transition. You may be desiring to evolve into a different role within the public sector, or explore options within the NGO, NFP/Charitable or private sectors. CareerJoy is on the Master Standing Offer (SA # E60ZT-120001/001/ZT) and we can help you. This is the first step toward reaching your own career and leadership goals.

In order to provide more information about how our firm and services can assist you in this transition, we are pleased to offer the following information sessions:

This program provides one-on-one customized coaching sessions, as well as a number of optional assignments and assessments. We recognize some clients have more limited time and need a higher level, structured process, and others want to dive deeply into a self-directed discovery process.
