FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla and CHAPEL HILL, N.C., October 3, 2005 — Spherion Corporation, a staffing, recruiting and workforce solutions provider, and Career Partners International (CPI), a global human resources consulting firm, have formed an alliance to enhance delivery of outplacement services. Through the alliance, Spherion will expand its geographic coverage in local markets, and CPI will strengthen its virtual delivery capabilities, providing clients of both organizations with greater flexibility in the delivery of career transition services.
“This alliance extends and strengthens our delivery capabilities, allowing us to provide even better service to our clients,” said Rochelle Moulton, vice president of Spherion’s human capital consulting practice. “We aim to give our clients maximum flexibility and our alliance with CPI ensures that our clients will receive superior career transition and outplacement service in any delivery mode they choose.”
Robert Caldwell, chairman of the board of Career Partners International, called the strategic alliance an exciting opportunity for both companies. “By combining the power of Spherion’s virtual career transition capabilities and resources with the face-to-face coaching and office services that Career Partners International is noted for, each company stands to benefit significantly from the synergies that will develop,” he said.
“We are very excited by the prospect of supporting Spherion’s clients who want a combination of virtual career transition resources and in-person coaching and counseling for their departing employees,” Caldwell said. “The real winners will be our clients and their outplacement candidates we serve who now have greater flexibility in their service delivery. At a time of industry consolidation, we see this as a major development within the human resources community."
