 3.  Corporate Outplacement programs: 

We offer both individual and seminar outplacement programs that can be tailored to the specific needs of any organization.  Our marketing methods are unique, highly proactive, and can provide you a much more cost-efficient alternative to the higher priced national outplacement firms.  As opposed to major outplacement firms that provide only several hours of counseling time with limited ongoing support, we concentrate our efforts on spending all the time necessary to assist the individual in achieving new employment.  Over 50% of our clients are employed, creating a healthier environment for the job seeker.  We provide four outplacement options to the corporate community.  Following is a brief overview of these options.  More detailed brochures are available on request.

  • A highly supportive marketing/counseling program to provide senior management with up to one year of continuing support. This one-year support program is suggested for executive management where more time is usually needed to deal with the contingencies and more lengthy process often required at this level.  Contact us for pricing information. 

 

  • A three-month spousal transplacement support program provided for the spouse of a transferred employee.  This program is designed to provide the client with basic search tools and provide up to three-months of ongoing emotional and structural support.  Contact us for pricing information.

 

  • We offer both a one and two-day seminar format with an option for ongoing support.  Pricing is based upon the selection of program options.  Price quotes include the cost of all support materials.  Travel expenses (if necessary), cost of lodging and meals are billed as additional expenses.  The cost of the seminar facility would also be at the company's expense.  Pricing varies based upon the number of participants, and we can adapt a program to deal with specific needs or issues.  Contact us for pricing information.
