During these unsettling times, it is important for us at CMS to ensure that the former employees you have entrusted us to help, feel that they are maintaining some level of control over their futures – by continuing to plan for their careers and implement effective job search strategies.  
Please know that CMS Program Coaches are connecting with your former employees through tele and/or video conferencing.  There will be no delay in the progress of their job search programs due to the lack of face to face meetings.  

As usual all program components are delivered to your former employees via our interactive, online program.  Customized résumés, company lists, letters and other resources are being delivered via email.
 
Being without work is generally a stressful time for most people, and this unprecedented time in our history increases this level of unease for job seekers. CMS’ Certified Program Coaches are well aware of this and are addressing the impact it may have on the lives of their clients.
Altering the sails of business in these unpredictable times.
During these unpredictable times, it can be difficult to navigate your employee base especially as we get used to the idea of social distancing. However, as we are all aware, businesses must operate as normal as far as it is possible.  
 
Unfortunately, sometimes part of operating a business, means making changes to your staff.  These may be changes that you are suspending for the time being, but if you must proceed with an unfortunate layoff, we hope the above strategies can give you some comfort in our approach to assisting your former employees.   
 
In addition:
CMS Group workshops will now be available online via webinar or live video conference, avoiding any delay in providing participants with essential job search tools and techniques.   
CMS’ Virtual Outplacement service is running as it normally does without affect.  

 If we can help you or your employees in any way as we all get used to this temporary reality, please connect with me directly.
 
Sincerely,
 
Louise Hack
