What will a CPI Twin Cities participant experience?

Your employee works with a coach—not just worksheets, a web page, or a group lecture.

Faced with the concerns that typically accompany a layoff, transitioning employees at every level deserve a one-on-one coach to guide them through crucial decisions—whether to pursue the same career, retrain, relocate, retire, or start a business. With proven techniques, wide-ranging corporate experience, and a pulse on the local job market, CPI consultants provide personalized coaching that puts participants miles ahead of self-administered or online outplacement programs.
Participants receive powerful resources at their fingertips.
Face-to-face career coaching is central in our transition programs. CPI also provides participants with an array of relevant resources, including an extensive proprietary online career portal, live workshops, webinars, and weekly networking events.
Programs are customized for corporate and individual needs.
CPI’s outplacement programs are highly individualized for senior executives, directors and individual contributors. Group transition workshops can also be structured to incorporate individual coaching. Remote programs are also a highly engaging solution, combining CPI’s robust online career portal with one-on-one coaching. Our goal for every transition engagement is to meet the needs of both the organization and individual participants.
Candidates who work with CPI Twin Cities quickly experience a difference. Participants receive genuine concern and a desire to help them succeed along with best-in-class services.
In 2016 we were recognized with Career Partner International’s Leadership Excellence in Global Outplacement Award for the highest customer satisfaction among hundreds of CPI firms, with an average score of 96.4%. Every CPI outplacement program is highly individualized to ensure candidates have what they need for their search.
