What makes PerforMAX so different from any other outplacement

from the corporate environment to consulting to entrepreneurial roles.

all size companies. And we have an acute ability to relate to each
individual on a one-on-one basis so that they can get our maximum
What if I only want to use some of the services offered?

What type of employee should take advantage of outplacement services?
We firmly believe that all employees that are displaced for any
number of reasons should have the opportunity to avail themselves to
outplacement services. This may include the obvious examples of
employees impacted by downsizing and layoff initiatives but could also
consist of retirees and in some cases voluntary leaves. (See the next
question for ways an employee may benefit from these services).
How can my former employees benefit from your services?
In addition to the typical outplacement services offered for
displaced employees, there are many other reasons why individuals
(retirees and other former employees) may benefit from our type of
services. The psychological impact of transitioning from one job to
another is often difficult to absorb. This takes time and one
frequently needs a sounding board during this important period. In the
case of a retiree, the mere fact of getting use to not working is often,
at times, a very difficult transition to make. Dealing with potential
financial difficulties and planning for the future is another factor to
consider. And then, for displaced employees, there are countless other
areas to explore including types of roles to consider, companies to
seek, preparing for interviews and working on a host of other areas that
may not have been a high priority for the past 10 or even 20 years.
Are there any specific types of positions that you are not experienced
to work with?
Not really. We have worked with virtually every type of
organizational culture and every level of employee from non-supervisory
levels to all levels of leaders including first line supervisors, middle
managers, directors, vice presidents, directors and C-suite. We also
relate quite well to various size organizations and have interacted
effectively with small and large organizations.
Many companies offer programs and services over the internet as well as
counseling services over the telephone. Do you offer these services as

needs in the best possible way so that they can get on with their lives
in the most sensible and practical manner.
