what is risesmart new zealand and how does it work?

RiseSmart New Zealand’s innovative and award-winning outplacement solutions are now fully available to New Zealand organisations. With virtual and blended solutions, RiseSmart New Zealand provides expert career transition solutions to guide and inspire people through organisational and demographic change.

RiseSmart’s personalised services and revolutionary technology dramatically accelerate the process of career transition and delivery of successful outcomes - at least 40% faster than the national average.

Recognising that an “employee relationship economy” is on the rise, RiseSmart focuses on beginning-to-beginning solutions, providing a world of opportunity for employers and employees to achieve successful transitions faster than ever.

National Director Aus / NZ leads RiseSmart New Zealand – Alison Monroe – already known to many New Zealand organisations in her capacity as the former CEO of Sageco – career and mature age transition solutions. Randstad acquired Sageco in January 2017.

Monroe, along with RiseSmart’s head of executive practice, Nan Dow, look forward to strengthening their connections with long-time clients and engaging other progressive organisations under the RiseSmart banner – starting mid-August with a series of client wisdom circles.

RiseSmart, a Randstad company, strengthens Randstad’s comprehensive suite of HR services and talent solutions for the New Zealand market.

RiseSmart’s approach is not simply about sourcing new jobs but creating careers. Organisations can rest assured that we will take care of their employees because we specialise in transitions: into, within, or out of organisations.

Our holistic approach for all ages and stages helps every employee go from a new beginning to a fresh start, whatever the trigger for change. By providing our unique and highly-effective combination of technology and human touch, our customers can uphold and protect their employer's brand through times of enormous change and transformation.
