Outplacement Services

The market has shifted. Revenues are down. Tough decisions need to be made.

Deciding that you need to terminate an employee is never easy, career transitions are never easy—for anyone.

Anyone who's ever been in the position of terminating an employee knows it's more than a business decision. It's personal and all too human. Good bosses want the transition to be as smooth and painless as possible for their employee.

They want them to land on their feet in a position where they will thrive. But these same bosses must also be certain that the process is executed flawlessly. 

We understand this delicate balancing act. You are looking for a defensible outplacement process that will meet the needs of your employees and your board.

 Contact us. We’ll provide you with that process.

 We can sit with you at the table during the termination if you prefer or wait in the wings. Once the news is delivered, we’ll take care of the rest. Your employee will be in kind but professional hands.
