Career Transition and Outplacement

Organizational changes that impact employees can be hard. Choosing a career transition provider should not be. We offer high-touch transition support that helps organizations protect their brand and minimize risk, while giving individuals the tools they need to move forward. We are proudly Canadian-owned and provide support across Canada and in 30 countries worldwide through our longstanding partnerships.

Career Transition Services

Our rigorous approach ensures that every transition goes smoothly. Whether you are engaging in a large-scale downsizing or transitioning one individual, we are dedicated to being your partner with planning assistance, notification training, and onsite notification-day support. Most importantly, your people will benefit from a program built for today’s workforce that includes one-to-one coaching, workshops, networking, and powerful technology.

Individualized support from a dedicated career coach

All individuals work one-on-one with a dedicated career coach. We believe this personal connection is crucial for helping your people unlock their potential.

Skills essential for today’s job market

Our workshops, networking groups, and on-demand webinars reskill employees and set them up for success. Special sessions on topics like entrepreneurship help explore more career options.

More progress with smart technology

We use technology to help individuals take their search further, not to replace in-person support. With iCareerManager, the latest job leads, resources, and industry insights are available 24/7.

Effective solutions for large-scale restructuring

Large-scale change requires strategic and tactical solutions. We customize our approach to your context and deploy our services efficiently across Canada and the world.

Visibility into the impact of your investment

We provide monthly reports on all individuals working with us, helping you track the outcomes of your investment.

Executive Transition Services

Executive transition comes with a unique set of needs. Our customized solutions are powered by a team of expert executive coaches. Executives get access to business coaching, cutting-edge technology, networking opportunities, and specialists. Our elite program supports executives in navigating personal transition, preparing for a competitive search, and moving towards their goals.

Targeted support from an executive perspective

We carefully match executives with coaches who have similar executive experience, and our executive seminars ensure a focus on the unique challenges of their transition.

Customized services ensure a productive search

Our approach is not cookie-cutter. We build an individualized plan for every executive based on their goals, getting them where they want to be.

Exclusive opportunities to expand their network

Our Executive Networking Group and the Women’s Executive Forum create regular opportunities to build connections and gain insights. All executive clients also have access to our broad network of executive alumni.

Deeper insights into career options

Another corporate role in the same industry may not always be the right next step. We help executives evaluate more options: other industries, entrepreneurship, consulting, or board-level work.

Retirement Readiness

Life’s Next Chapter, our retirement and lifestyle planning service, helps individuals and their partners prepare for the next stage of their lives. We know that retirement can be a difficult career decision, so we help individuals explore options that fit their circumstances and develop an action plan for a fulfilling lifestyle.

Building a bridge for a smooth transition

Transitioning from full-time employment may involve continuing some work like serving on boards, working part-time, or volunteering. Our program helps evaluate these options in the context of overall goals.

Establishing a rewarding lifestyle

We encourage individuals to take a multidimensional look at their retirement plans, including health, relationships, leisure activities, and personal development.

Preserving financial flexibility

We provide tools to review finances and prepare for working with a financial planner. Drafting a thoughtful plan can give individuals the freedom they want in retirement.
