• Outplacement

    Outplacement is a powerful means of managing a difficult change in your organisation. As outplacement specialists, we have worked with a variety of organisations to help them and their employees move through and past the difficult time or redundancy.

     

    Initial Needs Assessment

    Our outplacement and career transition services begin with a no cost, no obligation needs assessment, working with you to understand your current situation, culture, key challenges, success criteria and level of support required.

    You can then choose support for your employees as well as your organisation:

    Outplacement Project Management
