CROSSWINDS CONSULTANTS OUTPLACEMENT SERVICES

Career Development Coaching and Training Programs

The Crosswinds Approach

"Not only is it the right thing to do, it makes good business sense."

At Crosswinds Consultants, we believe that personal interaction and conversation are the cornerstones of launching a successful job search campaign with displaced workers. Personally connecting and understanding a displaced worker's current situation, evaluating their needs and developing a proactive approach towards their future employment goals are keys to a successful job search campaign. Every job seeker who engages Crosswinds Consultants receives personal one-on-one time with a qualified career consultant.

Emphasis is placed on what clients really need - training on the core areas of a successful job search, preparing resumes and cover letters, strategies and tactics for sourcing new job leads and a team of consultants dedicated to their success.

We acknowledge the traumatic emotional effects associated with being a displaced worker and offer a positive, welcoming and safe environment for job-seekers to launch the next chapter of their career.

At a Cost that is Affordable

Affordability

Crosswinds Consultants understands the financial burden placed on companies during times of layoffs and restructuring.

Our programs are positive, well intentioned and informative for those who are in transition.

Our programs start at $899 per displaced employee. We tailor programs to meet the organization's and individual's needs based on level of employment. We look forward to assisting you and your organization through the transition process.

Doing Right by Your Employees

Crosswinds Consultants believes the fundamental thought that it is the employees that make an organization. As an employer, you and your employees made a commitment to each other. When the difficult decisions have to be made regarding all types of downsizing, companies need to and should do the "right thing." That means, providing solid career transition for all displaced employees. In these times of economic uncertainty it was cited by the New York Times that the average worker is taking 5.5 months to land gainful employment. Once more, demonstrating that outplacement services are more crucial for your former employees than ever.

Without such services, your separated employees would spend more time searching for direction and less time actively pursuing future employment. Losing a job is considered to be one of the three most difficult experiences in one's lifetime. Crosswinds Consultants offers a solution that meets the training and coaching needs of your employees, and also provides a positive environment that gives them hope, guidance and motivation to recover fast and seek new employment opportunities.

A company that provides a solid outplacement service benefits far more than doing the right thing. It creates a culture that people want to be a part of. Outplacement services maintain the morale for your current key employees and create a new connection and relationship with displaced employees after they exit your organization. Finally, Crosswinds Consultants Outplacement Services reduce litigation concerns and cost, because you are actively doing your part as an employer to get your separated employees back into the workforce.

We encourage you to take advantage of the Crosswinds Outplacement Services programs for your employees at all levels of your organization. We will structure a program to meet your needs and a program that creates a launching pad for the future of your employees.
