Testimonials

HPI has truly been an invaluable partner for us. I would highly recommend their services. Over the years, they have guided our HR team with best practices and supported hundreds of our employees through mergers, acquisitions and various reductions in force. While many of our employees have benefited from their 1:1 services, those who participated in group discussions consistently provided feedback that they left feeling as though they had received individualized assistance. HPI provides support during one of the most difficult transitions a company and employee can face. They foster a supportive environment in which employees can work through a wide spectrum of emotions and help channel those feelings into positive, career advancing action plans.

I was first introduced to High Potential-Inc. nearly six years ago when proactively seeking out an executive coaching relationship for myself. After meeting with Bob Wilson and Phil Staffa for brief introductions, I was immediately impressed. I have developed a strong relationship with most of the leaders and executive coaches in the Chicago office over the past several years. Each and every one of the team members is outstanding. Just last year I worked with Mike Farrell through an unfortunately large reduction in force that outplaced nearly 700 individuals. However, I am proud to say that I received nothing but compliments of the staff, coaches, mentors and program leaders. If I knew of anyone going through a career transition, needing assistance with outplacement, or searching for a top of the line executive coach, High Potential would be the first place I would refer them to!

After many years of seeing my company downsize and reduce staff, it wasn’t a complete shock when it happened to me. But, even though I had taken steps to prepare for that day, it was still emotionally disruptive. Fortunately, Mike Farrell, Phil Staff and the HPI team were there to help. Their support and guidance helped me quickly move on and focus on defining and achieving my next career step.

If something happens to you in your job, I highly recommend HIP outplacement and transition services.

As the Executive Vice President and CHRO of a global organization with over 60,000 employees, I have come to rely on High Potential, Inc. as a true partner when handling career transition issues. Whether we were closing a plant with hundreds of employees or conducting a reduction of a corporate department at our headquarters location, HPI could be counted on to deliver empathetic and cost effective service to every employee, manager and executive. HPI’s consistent, high quality service and responsiveness always allowed my management team and me to view them as an extension of our human resource and employee relations effort. I would definitely recommend HPI to any organization wanting to assist their managers and employees through a career transition issues.

As a senior Human Resources executive in a declining industry, I called upon HPI to assist with more than a dozen facility closures and innumerable organizational restructurings.

HPI’s counselors are particularly skilled at engaging employees, from unskilled entry-level hourly to senior plant management, preparing them to re-enter the job market for the first time in years — decades in some instances.
Employees consistently offered rave reviews of their experiences with HPI. Further, as the vendor manager, without fail, I found the HPI team to be responsive, accommodating, and true business partners. Moreover, I came to count on them as an extension of my own team.

As a Company, I have always received quick responses to my requests and my employees have as well. HPI has provided comprehensive guidance and job search training to hundreds of employees and I am always confident the employees are in great hands to find their next career.
