Today is a special day, as it marks RiseSmart’s fifth anniversary.
We started the company in 2007 with one main objective – to help put America back to work. With that goal still first in our minds, we’re placing transitioning workers 59 percent faster than the national average, we’re innovating, and we’re growing.
In a market that has been dominated by traditional, brick-and-mortar business models, we have embraced technology in our next-gen outplacement solutions, Transition Concierge. We’ve injected the power of our proprietary, cloud-based technology, proven methodologies and one-on-one support to turn the outplacement industry on its head and delivered unprecedented results to both employers and their transitioning workers.
Since our inception, we have enjoyed rapid growth in our client base and consistent recognition for our efforts in the form of news media coverage and countless awards. Within a remarkably short amount of time, RiseSmart has become the leading next-generation outplacement solutions provider and the fastest-growing outplacement startup in Silicon Valley.
We have remained laser-focused on providing our customers with the highest quality outplacement solutions available. It’s a commitment that our customers appreciate. RiseSmart serves numerous Fortune 500 companies, as well as small and mid-size organizations in 29 industry segments, including retail, information technology, government contracting, financial services, engineering, news, food, pharmaceuticals and healthcare.
We want to take this occasion to express our gratitude to our dedicated employees for their good work and our valued customers for allowing us to assist them. Even as we look back on five rewarding years, we look forward to all the future will bring.
