Human, Holistic, and Genuinely Helpful!


At CMS we understand the stress and worry that comes with both delivering difficult news, and with receiving it.
Since 1981, CMS has been built on the foundation of providing compassionate, professional support that is human, holistic and genuinely helpful to the HR Managers we support, as well as to new job seekers. We believe that everyone is entitled to outplacement and career transition help no matter their level, and we maintain reasonable fees to ensure our services are accessible to most organizations.
We understand that providing outplacement support is not a legal requirement. To that end, we are committed to demonstrating just how fundamental it can be to one's future success by ensuring the consistent delivery of practical and effective tools, personalized coaching as well as financial counselling support to our job seekers.
CMS has developed a reputation for integrity, accountability, reliability and compassion - and we welcome the opportunity to demonstrate how we can support your HR team and your employees through unavoidable organizational changes.

Our Mission

Once an employee has absorbed the shock of no longer being employed, their mind generally turns to the challenge of replacing their income.  For most people, having to navigate today’s fast-moving job market by themselves is a lonely and frustrating prospect.  

Therefore, the goals of our outplacement programs are to provide practical, modern tools, and meaningful, strategic solutions through personalized coaching and program customization to help one achieve their career objectives, and keep their time between jobs to the minimum.

Every CMS team member feels personally responsible for the work we do for our job search candidates and the HR Managers who introduce them to us. We are all fully aware that our candidates’ success is also our success and reputation and we passionately work to protect both.


Professional, Compassionate, and Meaningful Career Transition Support.

We look forward to helping you
