Client: Financial Services Firm

The Context

As in-person banking was losing traffic due to the popularity of online banking, a full-service, growing financial services firm decided to close some brick-and-mortar branches. Despite the closures, many other internal positions still needed to be filled. Rather than lose strong talent with a good cultural fit, the organization’s goal was to retain those impacted by branch closures in a different capacity. They turned to Bravanti, a trusted career transition services partner, to assist them in reaching their goal.

Our Approach

  • Coaching employees to embrace new roles within the organization and envision how a different opportunity would look and work for them
  • Coaching individuals to gain confidence, knowledge, presentation skills through sophisticated tools, guiding them to understand internal interview effectiveness
  • Guidance on navigating the internal job posting system mechanics and processes for optimal job matches and opportunities
  • Partnering with individuals to create effective resumes that successfully passed through internal talent systems
  • Partnering with the HR team to align employees‘ skills with position openings

  • Reduced costs – Client cut the time and money spent looking to fill and onboard critical positions and  Career Coaching reduced unemployment costs by retaining these employees.
