How can I keep my best people on board? This is a question that - especially now - is being asked in virtually every organisation. After all, nothing can be accomplished without good people. The answer to that question is talent development. That’s because employees who are able to develop their skills are more engaged, deliver better performances and remain loyal to your organisation for longer.
There are also employees who are ready for a new phase in their careers. Perhaps they have no choice due to a restructuring or maybe because of their own individual performance. Step like that also requires good guidance. With outstanding results for people and hardly any fuss for companies. We can take care of that appropriate and long-term next step. Our career consultants are highly qualified, widely experienced and are familiar with the local labour market. It goes without saying that we offer an online portal, deliver tailored solutions and arrange everything on behalf of your organisation from A to Z. But it’s our consultants who make the real difference. In their sense of involvement and personal approach. It’s our consultant who inspire the best in people.
“I recently became redundant. I didn’t know what to expect from an outplacement programme. During the intake interview, the consultant really listened to the story of my background and the topics that I consider important. One specific comment from my consultant made a real impression on me. He indicated that from that point forward I would not be alone in my quest. That was exactly what I needed and wanted to hear.”

“After years of permanent employment, my position suddenly become redundant. Together with my consultant, we started sparring about my future options. By getting to work in a structured way with a very committed consultant, I realised after a number of sessions that I wanted to continue my career as an independent entrepreneur. We collaborated on a business plan and I started my own company."
Office Manager, woman, 58 years
"I have been working for the same employer for 39 years. Unfortunately, physical limitations prevented me from carrying out my former role, so I ended up in a track 2 reintegration programme. Given my age and physical limitations, I initially had little confidence in the programme. Together with my consultant, I started drafting my CV and we examined my options. Thanks to the commitment and clear vision of my consultant, I am now working as a planner, despite my age."

"Together with my husband, I moved to the Netherlands at the request of his employer. As a well-educated partner of an expat, I thought I could find a job here quickly. In practice, however, this turned out to be tougher than expected. Through my partner's employer, I was offered a spouse programme. During the meetings with my consultant, it soon became clear that I needed to approach some parts of the application process differently. Without the support of my consultant, I would not have succeeded in securing my current role as an EMEA Marketing & Communications Specialist with a renowned international organisation."

"I have been working for my current employer for more than 25 years in various roles. In order to make the next internal step, it was necessary to follow an executive leadership coaching programme. Initially, I did not agree with the outcome of my assessment. That changed after a number of discussions with my consultant, as a result of which I began to recognise and acknowledge the various elements. We then set to work together and my consultant also acted as a sounding board and sparring partner during the programme. Without her critical remarks, I would never have been able to take this internal next step in the right way."
Supply Chain Manager, man, 53 years
"The global headquarters decided that the location in the Netherlands should be closed. All activities were transferred to Poland. This process took more than two years as it was decided to carry out the closure in phases. In the Social Plan, it was agreed with the trade unions to outsource the outplacement activities to an external party. That external party was Talent4Success.”
"They did a great job and did their utmost to successfully guide the 125 redundant employees to new jobs. Our employees were supported with workshops, outplacement and track 2 reintegration programmes. The workforce was very diverse and consisted of blue collar unskilled to university graduates. Initially, the support was provided on-site, but once the candidates had left the organisation, the support was continued from the local Talent4Success branch."
Site closure, Human Resources Director
"As a global food producer, we were initially looking for an outplacement partner that could take the burden off our organisation. Talent4Success not only proved to be able to meet our needs with a broader range of services, but they were also able to support us on a national and international level."
"With short lines of communication, we now work with one regular Talent4Success contact. She knows exactly which programmes we want to offer our people and also ensures that we are always contacted within 24 hours. And that's just not for the Benelux, but worldwide. In addition to outplacement programmes, Talent4Success now also provides track 2 reintegration programmes, partner programmes for our expats and various coaching programmes."
Global Partnership, Head of People & Performance
"Talent4Success has been our partner for outplacement support for many years. During one of our regular evaluation meetings, we also discussed a long-term sick employee. Due to circumstances, we had forgotten to start a track 2 reintegration programme. It quickly became apparent that Talent4Success also has extensive knowledge and expertise in this area, which gave us the confidence that our employee would be in good hands. Thanks to their effective approach and the confidence in the consultant, the track 2 programme was launched very energetically. Ultimately, she found a suitable next step, which prevented a sanction in the form of an obligation to continue paying wages."
Expansion of existing partnership, Human Resources Manager
"We are a globally operating company. It turned out that the same job profiles were interpreted differently in different countries. Together with Talent4Success, we put together a project team that met with various managers from our organisation. Differences in the interpretation of the function profiles were extensively discussed and recorded."
"Based on the content of these discussions, we worked with Talent4Success to formulate new uniform job profiles. After rolling out these profiles in our worldwide organisation, Talent4Success carried out an assessment for all our employees. This provided an insight into who our high potentials are, which employees may no longer have the right role in the organisation and how we can organise inheritance planning. Finally, with the help of coaching and outplacement programmes, we were able to optimise our organisation."
