Customizing your HR solutions

Outplacement

Since 1995, CMA has provided customized outplacement services that meet organizations’ specific needs and minimize risk, from notification to separation. The CMA advantage is that we are more than a traditional outplacement company; we are a complete HR services firm. As a result, we understand the current state of employment and deliver focused, realistic career-transition solutions based on information gleaned from interactions with CEOs, CFOs, HR leaders and hiring managers. We continually integrate their feedback to update our methods, techniques and tips so that we always provide the best career advice for today’s job market.

Our approach is attuned to the needs of the affected individual or group. No number is too small or too large because of our global affiliation with Lincolnshire International. Whether related to a corporate restructuring, temporary downsizing or termination for performance reasons, we help employees minimize transition time and maximize their chances for finding a good fit with their next employer.

CMA’s career transition programs are designed to accommodate the differing transition needs of employees at different organizational levels. Thus, we provide distinct levels of service, although any service level may be delivered to any individual.

Kennebec Savings Bank has used many services provided by CMA. Executive recruitment, career counseling for employees, AAP support and Human Resources consultation. I am pleased with the quality of their work and I don’t hesitate to recommend their services to other HR professionals. CMA is Maine’s “home Town” team when it comes to providing professional HR services.

CMA is my go to HR advisor when we need extra hands, eyes or minds to work on an employment related situation or project. I work with CMA in a highly collaborative partnership – we look at our organization’s vision and strategic plan, create a plan that is aligned and customized. I trust the team and am very satisfied with the work and results!

CMA is a fabulous trainer: knowledgeable, energetic, and practical! They delivered communication skills training to 30 of our hotel department managers, and the feedback we received was terrific. We certainly will request them back again.
