Providing professional, compassionate and efficient support to our HR clients is paramount to the reputation we have developed since 1981. 

The role of human resources is integral to making organizational changes as efficient and as effective as possible. However, the effects of implementing difficult decisions, especially when it comes to laying off staff can be profound on HR team members.  

The goal at CMS is to alleviate the stress that our HR colleagues often endure during difficult situations, by ensuring fast, efficient and responsive support when it’s needed most.  By sharing our vast experience and skills, we develop customized solutions that fit needs and budgets and compassionately coach our HR clients through the planning and delivery of difficult news.

By providing a central point of contact, we ensure efficient and responsive support to our HR clients and streamline the management of single or multiple meetings nationwide at short notice.

CMS has been built on the belief that everyone, no matter their level, deserves job search help. Therefore, our business model demands low overheads and the efficient use of technology in order to provide fair prices that most companies are happy to afford.  

We have earned a reputation for accountability and integrity.  We never issue invoices for programs not engaged, and our HR clients receive a high-level Employee Progress Report monthly, so that they can be confident that programs are being utilized and dollars are being well spent; all while protecting the privacy of our job seekers. 

At CMS, we are all fully aware that our candidates’ success is also our success and reputation. To that end, we do not lock our corporate clients into annual contracts. To us, every job you give us is ‘the first job’ – and we make absolutely sure that you will always be happy to give us the next one!

Consultations are always complimentary  – we are happy to help!
