Our success stories
We successfully started our Career Transitions Services with Maple Leaf Foods in Moncton and continued with Co-op Atlantic, two companies restructuring and closing their operations.
Our team was part of the Adjustment Committee created by Maple Leaf, in partnership with the UFCW local 1288P union and local and provincial governments, to support the transition of the approximately 450 affected employees to new employment. Our skilled Employment Counsellors provided employees with new skills training, job search and career development assistance for over 2 years, ensuring a smooth transition to the workforce.
At Co-op Atlantic, over 400 jobs were eliminated while the viable divisions were sold, leaving many longstanding loyal employees, from senior executives to warehouse workers, without employment. With the help of our Career Transition Services, Co-op employees were more equipped to transition into the job market. They received professionally written resumes and cover letters, participated in mock interviews while also attending training on job search strategies, networking and LinkedIn. By coordinating our efforts with the Human Resources Department, we were able to make a difference in these employees’ lives and give them hope for the future.
