Ohio, (May, 2009) — Sanford Rose Associates-Cleveland East
is proud to announce its partnership with national Sanford Rose
Associates offices expanding outplacement and career transition
services to companies Ohio, Pennsylvania, Kentucky, Indiana and
Like many professionals, the changing economy has Ginni Garner,
managing director of Sanford Rose Associates-Cleveland East noticing
a change in her business. As an executive search and recruitment
professional, Garner spent the last 15 years helping companies
find, recruit and hire talent. Today’s economy presents
a different challenge. Client companies have shifted their focus
from hiring and growth to cost-cutting and stability. Companies
are now in a situation where they are facing staff reductions
the lay offs and spiraling economy has been alarming, it has allowed
my firm and other SRA Managing Directors to examine how we could
increase our outplacement service offerings to provide value to
companies and individuals in the mid-west,” says Garner.
“We are utilizing our years of candidate coaching, resume
writing and interviewing to help displaced employees.”
Outplacement or career transition services make good business
sense. First, companies can reduce their exposure to litigation.
A former employee is less likely to search for a reason to sue
if they are treated well when they leave the company. Second,
companies will preserve positive community relations. Employees
are more likely to talk favorably about a former employer if they
are participating in an Outplacement program or given career assistance.
In addition, employees often continue relationships with former
colleagues. Positive communication will influence current employee
engagement and retention.
“As my colleagues and I surveyed the market and spoke with
executives who used outplacement in the past, we noticed a high
cost and minimal personal attention given to the displaced employee,”
notes Garner. “Our typical outplacement program costs half
the price of some of the larger firms and focuses on assisting
displaced employees one-on-one, an approach that allows us to
focus in their individual career experience and transition. Our
basic package consists of six hours of coaching. We work with
people face-to-face, over the phone and via online webinars.
SRA outplacement consultants coach and mentor displaced employees
through a career evaluation, job search skills, packaging/branding,
interviewing and offer negotiation.
With the job market changing daily, the high volume of job losses
has created a huge demand for outplacement, and Ginni Garner and
Sanford Rose Associates-Cleveland East team of consultants is
here to help small businesses effectively right-size their workforce.
