Our proactive approach establishes effective working relationships with all stakeholders in the career transition process, including executives, senior management, HR leaders, and line managers/supervisors. We begin with pre-termination consulting to gain an understanding of business rationale, organizational protocols, expected outcomes and the effects of the process on the organization.

Onsite notification support includes recommendations for handling the notification and communication processes, advice on the handling of behavioral issues and debriefing meetings with management / staff following completion of the separation activities. Following notification, we immediately begin same day/next day follow-up with affected employees to ‘check in,’ clarify next steps and set appointments to begin the transition process. Our focus is on positive steps to move them forward. We offer a variety of program options that are designed to meet a wide range of organizational and individual needs. What sets us apart among all other career transition firms is our Concierge Executive Career Transition program, the Executive Experience allowing for personal, private reflection and counseling time. Based upon employee level, service length and other situational factors, we offer program options from group, one month, to one year. Our programs are results-driven, and success is defined as helping the employee toward meeting his or her career journey, not just finding the ‘next job.’
