Montreal-based Swift Human Resources Helps Companies Downsize

Swift Human Resources, based in Montreal, is offering a unique Career Transition Services Program for employers who are faced with having to lay-off employees.
Feb. 19, 2009 - PRLog -- Financial experts are stating that the present downturn in the economy is the worst seen in over 60 years. As a result of this recession, many employers are now facing the task of stream-lining their operations for greater profitability, which means that, unfortunately, they will have to reduce their staffing complement.

Letting go of people is serious business. One Montreal company, Swift Human Resources, is offering a specialized Career Transition Services Program for employers who are dedicated to helping their employees find meaningful employment in other companies and industries.

Faye Swift, president of Swift HR, who has been in the human resources industry for over ten years, states, “Every day I hear of companies that are downsizing or simply shutting their doors. Many employers, who have viewed their employees as if they were family, must make the difficult decision to lay-off staff members. The main question for these employers is how to help their employees make a successful transition to another company or industry or how to help them view and actualize opportunities in new careers. We also provide employers with answers to their questions about legal requirements, how to tell an employee he or she is laid off, exit interview techniques the management of existing staff and change management.”

Swift HR’s Career Transition program enables employees to: evaluate their career choices; identify their existing capabilities; obtain job search skills and knowledge of the current market; and receive support and resources in order to help them get back into the workforce in a quick and efficient manner.

Swift continues, “Making a transition can be very stressful for employees. As well as dealing with uncertainty, they face the challenge of finding a new employer, the fear of not knowing what other fields are offering, and the confusion involved when assessing if one has the necessary skills to enter a new work environment. We see our role as supportive to both employers and employees in these critical times. As human resources specialists, we provide workshops, one-on-one counselling or a combination of both, in addition to providing access to the many job-search resources and tools that are currently available on and offline.”
