If you are purchasing career transition programs of less than six months duration, chances are that services are running out before impacted employees have successfully transitioned. The average job search duration in the U.S. today is 27 weeks and typically, organizations purchase programs that are of a much shorter duration. We can offer a delivery option that addresses this problem. Our clients think so too, as they’ve switched to our more robust option for their impacted employees and now enjoy a better return on their outplacement investment.
Individualized consulting, with a personally assigned senior career coach and fully integrated technology tools and resources, (available anywhere, anytime) are the most valued components of career transition services. The use of office space has declined precipitously in the last decade and fewer than 10% of your associates will use an office when one is included in the program. We’ll help you configure services that address the needs of those in career transition today – which includes uncompromising high quality coaching and access to technology tools and resources until successful transition. You will only pay for an office when an office is required.
At AJO, we partner with clients to custom design services for non-standard situations. We have several creative options up our sleeves where traditional career transition configurations just don’t work. This includes services that allow individuals to continue working where a facility is closing over a period of time or geographically distributed employees that would have participated in a workshop if they were in the same location.
