Full-Service Outplacement Programs
Every job search is extremely personal, and is highly competitive.
The moment an employee is told their services are no longer required, their mind immediately turns to the problem of replacing their income. For most people, having to navigate today’s fast-moving job market by themselves is a lonely and frustrating prospect. To that end, the goal of our outplacement programs is to provide meaningful, practical and personalized assistance to keep one’s time between jobs to the minimum. The professionalism and the innate compassion of our qualified, experienced team sets us apart – and our practical tools and resources make all the difference in the success of one’s search.
Ultimately, at CMS we are in the ‘helping business’ and every member of our team feels personally responsible for the work we do for our candidates and the HR Managers who introduce them to us. We are all fully aware that our candidates’ success is also our success and reputation and we work vehemently to protect both.
We offer a variety of program service levels to provide you with choice and to meet any number of organizational needs and budgets. All of our program options ensure the provision of quality resources and support.
Our Full-Service Outplacement Program can be Defined by THREE PILLARS of Support, ensuring a Holistic Approach to Career Transition:
1. Personalized Program Coaching; to create a sense of empowerment, confidence and optimism for the future. Each program is managed by a dedicated, proactive and qualified program coach who works one-on-one with our job search candidates via phone or video conferencing. Access to CMS program coaches is unlimited for the duration of their program. Programs can be stopped and restarted according to individual circumstances ensuring zero program time lost. In addition, we are always happy to provide post program support providing direction regarding job search topics such as reference letters, networking, obtaining testimonials, working with search firms, handling offer negotiations etc., even after a candidate has completed their program. ‘Once a CMS job search candidate, always a CMS job search candidate’.
2. Practical job Search Assistance Tools and Strategies; to create the biggest pool of potential job opportunities. All CMS job search candidates have 12-month access to CMS’s proprietary Canadian Career Management System©; our interactive website for the latest CMS program materials, exercises and instructions. Program Coaches will guide their candidates through the course material according to customized plans developed for each person.
3. Professional Financial Counselling; to relieve the stress caused by the sudden lack of employment and subsequent loss of income. Personalized Financial counselling is provided to each program participant by an independent Certified Financial Planning Professional (CFP). Our CFP is not affiliated with any bank or financial institution ensuring objective, friendly and practical advice.
Program customization is implemented at the beginning of the process through discussion with ones personal program coach where current life circumstances, existing skills-sets, future goals and market conditions are taken into consideration. These discussions may result in planning around retirement, entrepreneurship, retraining, lateral or vertical job shifts.
