Cupertino, CA (PRWEB) June 28, 2012
In our modern, volatile economy we can no longer expect permanent employment with any one employer. Today's average worker has multiple jobs and often multiple careers as well. Layoffs, terminations, and pink slips are so universal that they are now euphemistically called downsizing or rightsizing. But whatever the label, the process is no easier to deal with—not for the employee whose services are being terminated nor for the executives who initiate the termination. Now author and career transition expert Barbara Safani works with author/publisher Mitchell Levy of THiNKaha® Books to bring you #SUCCESSFUL CORPORATE LEARNING tweet Book04: Career Transition Training and Services That Work in Today’s Environment, a direct-to-action book that shows you how to best to deal with corporate downsizing.
Fortunately, as Safani and Levy share, there is a silver lining to all this turbulence, and that is that the concept of career transition is here to stay. Career transition is the process by which the terminating organization assists terminated employees with making the shift and often helps in the search for new employment. While the benefits to the employee are apparent, what is less clear are the benefits to the company effecting the downsizing. Career transition helps displaced employees understand the business reasons for tough corporate decisions. By keeping such displaced, often disgruntled, employees focused on their own future, it shifts attention away from personal negatives like depression and greater ills like expensive lawsuits. Strategic and compassionate career transition services have therefore become part of today's corporate environment.
The authors’ hands-on practical wisdom is apparent throughout the book. For example, aha #46 in the book advises, “No one makes a career of changing jobs. Most are uncomfortable with the job search process and ill-prepared for the journey ahead.” Or consider aha #13, which highlights the benefits of career transition: “Studies reveal companies offering transition services achieve gains in engagement, recruitment cycle, cost per hire, and referrals.”
Human resource heavyweights are vocal about the value of this new book. Ariel Boverman, who sits on the board of the Human Resources Association of New York, calls it a “must read for anyone in Human Resources as well as Management.” Jennifer Paterson, Director of HR at FOJP Service Corporation, says the book is “Chockfull of clear, concise, and powerful information about the value and importance of career transition services.”
#SUCCESSFUL CORPORATE LEARNING tweet Book04 will be a valuable addition to the bookshelf of every proactive, concerned and enlightened executive. Order your copy today.
