Over the past 18 months, RiseSmart's cloud-based outplacement solution, Transition Concierge, has emerged as the fastest-growing solution in the U.S. outplacement market, and has earned industry-wide praise as it has changed the way companies manage and measure their employee transition programs.
RiseSmart's platform utilizes aggregation technology, semantic search and human filtering to provide the best match of jobseekers with open positions. The solution delivers highly personalized job leads as well as other job search tools to eligible employees. Transitioning workers receive one-on-one consultation and support during every step of the job-finding process.
“It’s an honor to again be named a finalist by Golden Bridge Awards,” said Sanjay Sathe, founder and CEO of RiseSmart. “The recognition that RiseSmart continues to earn is proof that our business model works. We’re proud to be placing transitioning workers into new positions in an average of 18 weeks – less than half than the national average of nearly 39 weeks.”
