Career Transition

Career transitions are inevitable due to changes in organizational and business strategies, mergers and acquisitions, or simply an employee/position mismatch.

Organizations engage Palmer Group to transition employees out of your organization with dignity and coach them through the job search process. Our outplacement programs incorporate the use of guided technology as well as one-on-one attention, combined with local influence and global reach.

Our methods reduce the stress of the transition process and apply effective job search practices that, as a result, land new opportunities faster.

Since 2003, Palmer Group has partnered with client companies, executives and individuals in transition. As part of Career Partners International (CPI), we differentiate ourselves though our continued commitment to a coach-centered approach and high-touch, customized career transition services that address the unique needs of every organization and employee.
