RiseSmart helps companies retain talent with redeployment solutions for the modern workforce

Recent U.S. labor market trends, as reported by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, show that employee quits to layoff ratio has significantly risen over the last eight years – to pre-recession levels. The trend points to rising worker confidence and increased pressure for organizations to retain their existing talent. As a result, more companies are looking for ways to create a flexible and engaging workplace. In response to this need, RiseSmart provides a solution to companies looking to retain talent and align their skills with corporate strategy.

SAN JOSE, Calif., February 21, 2017 —RiseSmart, the leading provider of contemporary career transition services, today added RiseSmart Redeployment™ to its growing suite of career transition solutions that include outplacement and training services. RiseSmart Redeployment is an HR solution that facilitates the organized movement of talent from one role or business area to a different, suitable position within the organization. This new solution from RiseSmart helps organizations retain top employees and valuable company knowledge, reduce costs, and enhance their employer brand.

RiseSmart Redeployment combines advanced, proprietary job search and career management software with services from a dedicated team of three experts in coaching, branding and job sourcing for every participant. When used on its own, or in conjunction with other RiseSmart career transition services, organizations can effectively manage their workforce during periods of transition surrounding restructuring, mergers and acquisitions or layoff.

By leveraging RiseSmart’s expertise and technology, employees can identity key contacts and open positions within the company essential to landing new roles. By combining its outplacement and redeployment services across one platform, RiseSmart accelerates the transition of top talent into jobs perfectly matched for them based on their skills, experience, and desired interests.

“If talent can’t move within your company, it will move outside your company,” said Sanjay Sathe, president and CEO of RiseSmart. “The average U.S. employer spends about $4,000 and 52 days to hire a new worker, when they could already have talented employees who are not only qualified and readily available, but also trained and familiar with company information. RiseSmart Redeployment enables the retention of individual talent by reassigning workers to open roles. It’s a win-win for both employees and employers.”

RiseSmart customers have already successfully used the solution. For example, a $55 billion global manufacturing organization with 125,000 employees restructured certain divisions while other divisions were actively hiring. By providing each impacted employee with a RiseSmart certified resume writer, a coach with relevant industry experience and access to RiseSmart technology, their employees were able to find a well-matched job within the organization in less than six weeks, on average. Accelerating the time it takes to land a new role and retaining valuable employees allowed this RiseSmart customer to optimize productivity, eliminate hiring costs, and minimize the disruption to their workforce.

“RiseSmart customers and prospects have been requesting redeployment services for some time, as have many customers of other Randstad operating companies. Adopters of our redeployment services ended up retaining their most talented employees by providing opportunities for them to transition to open positions elsewhere in the company. As a result, those customers have maintained their reputation as a great place to work and kept hiring and onboarding costs down,” says Ian Dawson, RiseSmart chief sales officer.

RiseSmart Redeployment is available now. Pricing varies according to level and program duration. For more information, visit www.RiseSmart.com.
