RiseSmart Drives Accountability in Outplacement Services with New Transition Concierge(R) Employer Portal

December 8, 2010

RiseSmart, a leading provider of next-generation outplacement and recruitment process outsourcing solutions, today unveiled a first-of-its-kind employer portal for its Transition Concierge® outplacement solution. This new portal puts accountability in outplacement services at the customer’s fingertips.

“One of the major failings of traditional outplacement has been a lack of accountability to employers. The industry has offered a lot of talk about helping laid-off workers find jobs, but when it’s time to back up that talk with hard data, traditional service models often are hard-pressed to do so–if they provide any numbers at all,” said Sanjay Sathe, founder and CEO of RiseSmart. “Our new employer portal makes it easy for an employer to see exactly what they get for their money when they choose Transition Concierge.”

The Transition Concierge employer portal enables corporate customers to:

  • Track the success rate of RiseSmart’s Transition Concierge in placing former employees in new jobs
  • Review the progress of any former employee’s usage of the outplacement services, and to gain visibility into the specific components of the Transition Concierge program in which they are participating
  • Create a priority “hot list” of former employees whom the employer can follow, to increase the chance of re-hiring these employees when the need arises
  • Securely add new employees to the Transition Concierge program
  • Receive on-demand reports of status, progress, and performance of the Transition Concierge program
  • Get help and support at any time from a Transition Concierge account manager

Transition Concierge, RiseSmart's flagship outplacement solution, takes advantage of a blend of technology and personal interaction to optimize time-to-placement for laid-off workers. Powered by proprietary job-matching software, RiseSmart delivers highly personalized job leads, as well as other job search tools, to eligible employees on a weekly basis. Laid-off workers have access to one-on-one assistance from trained Transition Specialists.
