RiseSmart Transition Management Services is the one offering on the market that provides laid-off managers and executives with the assistance of a RiseSmart Concierge -- an HR professional who conducts their online job search for them.

    RiseSmart bridges the gap between traditional job boards and the personal attention of a career coach by providing a RiseSmart Concierge - a trained HR professional - to help members with their job searches. Through RiseSmart Transition Management Services, the company now makes RiseSmart Concierge service available to corporate clients.

"While many companies going through layoffs are generous in providing office space, the use of computer equipment, and other support services to their affected employees, the element of transition management that is most important to workers is outplacement - finding a new job," says Sanjay Sathe, RiseSmart founder and CEO.

"RiseSmart Transition Management Services is the one offering on the market that provides laid-off managers and executives with the assistance of a RiseSmart Concierge -- an HR professional who conducts their online job search for them."

RiseSmart: A Smarter Approach to Outplacement

Through RiseSmart Transition Management Services, corporate clients can provide RiseSmart Concierge service to transitioning employees at group discounts and/or as a white-labeled offering.

Here's how the service works:

"White-collar workers who are actively seeking employment typically spend between 30 and 40 hours per month searching online," says Dan Davenport, RiseSmart co-founder and chief financial officer. "By effectively conducting online job searches for your transitioning employees, we free them to focus on networking or other concerns during this always-stressful period."

Why Corporate Clients Should Choose RiseSmart

RiseSmart Transition Management Services offer corporate clients a number of important benefits, including:

-- Proactive Assistance to Jobseekers. RiseSmart's customized job-matching program helps transitioning employees find their next job faster.

-- Special Introductory Pricing. Employers can secure a year's worth of RiseSmart service for about $500 per employee -- and even less for large layoffs.

-- Easy Integration. The RiseSmart team can work in conjunction with an existing transition management company or act as a standalone offering.

-- Custom Solutions. RiseSmart service can be integrated with clients' current online transition services. RiseSmart creates branded portals and provides custom reporting for its corporate clients.

RiseSmart has already signed its first two corporate clients and is currently discussing strategic partnerships with major transition management companies, Davenport said.
