For companies

Separation always involves putting distance between yourself and the familiar, and daring to do something new. This is true both for employers and employees.

Our clients are responsible employers, who meet their social responsibilities if redundancies have to be made for any reason. We support your staff in career transition with outplacement or a new placement.

We always work on a needs-oriented basis: cooperating closely with the company, we can develop and offer a programme that is tailored to your companie’s size and individual needs, taking into account the seniority levels and the job market ‘fit’ of the people concerned. Costs and the time frame are determined in advance, but the schedule and number of meetings are organised according to individual’s situation and demands.

All programmes are individually designed, with no limits on the number or the length of the meetings.

Proximity to people is important to us. Three factors allow us to provide effective professional support: individualised advice, our team’s above-average level of commitment, and our many years of experience on both sides of the recruitment process. These capabilities enable us to focus on all aspects of career transition. Our comprehensive advice is tailored to each individual’s personal situation. In this process, we apply supporting modules and up-to-the minute information sheets as a practical introduction to career progression. We thereby help the employee concerned to become aware of realistic possibilities and to proactively create new professional pathways.
