“I wanted to say thank you very much for what has clearly been another very successful Leadership Programme. It was very obvious how much the group got out of the programme and this is really the type of experience that I believe makes a difference here at UL. The success of this is really down to your skills and experience as facilitators, and your ability to challenge the group’s thinking. Thank you for all the effort and energy you put into this and we look forward to working again together very soon.”

"Having researched the market, we partnered with Harmonics for our inplacement/outplacement programme following a major restructure. We chose Harmonics because it was clear from our initial interaction with them that they intuitively understood and were aligned with our values and leadership standard. It was evident that they are very focused on the human being at the heart of significant organisational change and the impact on them personally. This was extremely important to us. The quality of their products and team of staff is excellent. Their flexibility and ‘can do’ approach was very welcome during an uncertain and continually evolving time in our organisation. Feedback from our employees has been universally positive and we were delighted with the service."

“We chose Harmonics as our Outplacement Partner Firm in a recent tender process. Our decision has been very much vindicated by their quality response to our specific needs. Peer testimonals have encouraged greater engagement in the Outplacement Programme. The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. We went from a Global Outplacement provider where we felt more like a number to an Indigenous Irish firm with global reach who truly listened and helped each step of the way. Three words I would use to describe Harmonics would be ‘Personable, Professional and Passionate’. This partnership has demonstrated to our people that we are committed to supporting them at their greatest time of need. Thank you Team Harmonics.”

Working with Bernie was truly life changing for me. I began my professional relationship with her after taking some time out of work to care for family. I had modest ambitions to start my own business, no idea where to start, and a fear that it was not possible to "have it all". Bernie brought out the best in me. She brought to the fore, potential and confidence that were already there, but I had hidden them away for a number of years. Now, less than 6 months later my new business is up and running, and I have my first client. Turns out, it may be possible to have it all, and to constantly better your fulfilment in life! Rather than changing my life for me, Bernie taught me how to change my own, which has been so powerful. I would highly recommend Bernie as a coach

I contacted John Fitzgerald at Harmonics as I wanted him to help me “Shake Down” my career and assist me in deciding on my next step. At the end of our second meeting I had the most career clarity that I ever had – it was time to leave. I left my comfortable role and joined a fantastic business five months later. I now have a role where I have complete ownership of this part of our overall business. The business is growing so my issues are now about how I maximise that growth. The knowledge and skills that I had developed are allowing me to make a big difference to this business and shape the future direction.

Melissa has extensive knowledge of current employer markets along with fully understanding clients requirements within their respective fields. She assisted me in gaining my Supply chain role with one of the leading Nutritional companies in Ireland. She has excellent people skills along with knowledge of company expectations versus her clients skillset. Melissa is consistent as she has placed some of my ex work colleagues in similar positions over the last few years. I would recommend Melissa to any employer/employment person(s) seeking the right fit for purpose.

Lee-Ann helped me in the recruitment process for a new job opportunity in Ireland. As I'm from Brazil, there were obviously some challenges due to the distance. Nevertheless Lee-Ann always conducted the whole process with a very kind, professional and efficient manner - all my doubts were quick answered, all open points efficiently solved on time. During the whole process I always feel well supported, and at the end I got the position. I strongly recommend Lee-Ann as recruiter - one of the best I ever seen, her work is superb in every aspect.

In early 2019, I decided I wanted a career change – up until then I had been with large multinational companies in various technical, sales and management roles. I had some idea that I wanted to join or form a start-up, but the options seemed vast and somewhat daunting. The process I followed with Fiachra allowed me to methodically look at where I was, where my strengths were, what my key drivers for my career were and we put together a plan to explore the most attractive options. There is no doubt in my mind that the outcome is much better having had Fiachra as a coach and I am now very happily in an exciting role with a fast-moving start-up. What was a potentially very stressful period was made much less stressful for myself and family by working with Fiachra. I would highly recommend Fiachra and Harmonics.

We have been working with Harmonics outplacement services since the announcement of the site closure at Aptar in August 2020 and are extremely happy with the responsive service they have provided. We had many challenges with COVID-19 restrictions and found the team at Harmonics to be very responsive, professional and supportive during these difficult times. It is testament to the team at Harmonics that so many of our employees secured employment before and since they finished up with Aptar.

I transitioned out of a busy global role within a large multinational in late 2017. Having spent more than 20 very happy years working with the same company, I found it to be one of the scariest things I had done in my life. So much of my identity and concept of success was tied to my job. As my coach, Fiachra had immense patience with me and helped me figure out what I wanted to do with the next period of my life. The whole process helped me honestly evaluate my strengths, weaknesses and be honest with myself about what I liked doing. Most importantly I felt that I mattered as a person at a time when I needed support. I gained the confidence and belief in myself once again to strike out on the next exciting step of my career, I also feel like I have gained a friend and ally in Fiachra and Harmonics.

I had the opportunity and pleasure to participate in the Self-Marketing Programme offered by Harmonics and hosted by Mary Roche. One of the Harmonics values is "constantly learning and bringing new ideas to the table", and I could not agree more with this. This workshop has truly been eye-opening, and now I know I am going in the right direction. Thanks to all the Harmonics team, and more specially to Mary Roche. Your professionalism and excellent coaching has made this possible. I have become more self-aware of who I am, what my skills are, how to understand their value and transferability, what makes me unique.

Working with Harmonics as part of my outplacement support was fantastic. The Self marketing programme was a great opportunity to review skills and strengths, and tie those in with my future career goals.

Choosing Harmonics to help our employees transition to a new stage in their life was simple. From our first sit down meeting with Harmonics to the organisation and delivery of the Outplacement Support Program the process was easy. Each employee had the freedom to select what was important to them from a range of options which included full day workshop sessions, 1:1 career coaching sessions and financial sessions -> each preparing them for the next stage of their careers, whether it was securing a new job or retirement planning. The passion and interest that Harmonics brought to the process was plain to see and provided our employees with the knowledge and confidence to take their next step. I would highly recommend Harmonics to any organisation who is looking to provide an optimal outplacement support experience to their employees.

After taking redundancy from my previous job that I had been in for the previous 14 years I was very fortunate to work with Harmonics. Not having been in the jobs market for such a long time, I was in the position of having to create a CV and learn how to market myself again to potential employers. I was very hesitant at first around what the Coaching Programme would be like and whether or not the sessions would be worth my while. I am delighted I went ahead with them and found my Harmonics coach, Pat Kennedy, excellent in putting me at ease with the process while also challenging me in a positive way to think about how I want to move forward with my next career steps. Working with Pat, I went from being unsure of my next steps to feeling confident in what I can uniquely offer to a new company. The sessions with Pat where we worked on my career goals and future career path were invaluable to help me focus and set a path forward. I now have a CV and LinkedIn profile that properly highlight my skills, experience and achievements. The walkthrough the interview process and knowing how best to highlight my skills in interviews and put my best foot forward, improved my confidence and I have brought that into real world situations. I couldn’t recommend Harmonics and the career coaching programme any more highly as I would have found it a struggle to know where to start and I certainly wouldn’t be in the confident place that I am in now.

“After the difficult announcement to close our site in Shannon after almost 50 years, our focus was to select an Outplacement Service Provider that we could partner with to provide the high level of support we wanted for our employees. We chose Harmonics because the employee was at the core of their service. There was a lot of understandable concern on site following the closure announcement. One of the first steps we took was to bring Harmonics on site to meet with employees and outline the support and service that would be provided. This was hugely beneficial and helped to raise the morale following the announcement. Employees understood the support that would be provided and their concerns were allayed. The programme with Harmonics ran for over 16 months. The career coaches that we worked with were experts in their fields and they developed strong connections with our employees. We had many long service employees who had reservations initially, Harmonics broke down those barriers and supported in any way possible. As a result of the programme, employees understood their unique capabilities and developed job search skills that they will take forward. Many employees have successfully secured new employment or have returned to education, Harmonics helped employees to explore all options. We ran a Career Centre on site with Harmonics for over 6 months. This support was invaluable to our employees for all aspects of their career search. The background support provided by the Harmonics team ensured that the programme ran smoothly to meet all needs. We were faced with the COVID pandemic early on in the programme, but the Harmonics team quickly adapted to ensure that the quality of service was not impacted. Thank you to John and all the Harmonics team for the wonderful and much appreciated support provided to our employees.”

“Over the past 6 years I have been extremely fortunate to have several opportunities to work with the expert team at Harmonics, successfully achieving a number of professional goals including career development, financial planning for the future and more recently, applying for and securing a new role in the most challenging of recruitment environments, the COVID pandemic. Liam Croke was a trusted support in expertly guiding me through the headache of financial planning while always patiently translating the complicated foreign language that is finance! Neil Doherty was a supportive and encouraging mentor during a recent mid-career planning phase, again guiding me through the often daunting modern recruitment process in this current online environment. Always there with a helpful tip or words of encouragement, Neil always had the right response to any query! The Harmonics Online Career Centre is a treasure trove of information and advice, helpful articles, videos and guides on all topics career-related, an excellent resource. I would highly recommend the Harmonics experience!”

"I had the benefit of using Harmonics as part of my outplacement experience. Despite my reservations about the service prior to beginning, I was blown away by how much it helped me. The coaching was exceptional and I was completely won over in terms of the programme I received. It was tailored precisely for my needs and I explored areas I would never normally have looked at, with regards to my career path, my working methods, and even my personal aspirations. I really cannot recommend Harmonics enough and would encourage everyone to avail of the service. I have accelerated my career on the back of the help, and have an entirely new view on both my career and life goals."

"I chose the outplacement support provided by Harmonics after the company announced the redundancy. I am glad that I made the right decision. At the beginning of the program, I received a warm welcome from Joyce Jackson who introduced the program and asked me about my background. A big thanks to her for facilitating all the arrangements. During the program, I had access to the Harmonics online career centre and participated in one-to-one career coaching with Neil Doherty. It was a great pleasure to work with Neil. He is very professional and supportive. He taught me many useful lessons and helped me to realise my strengths and overcome my weaknesses. With his help, not only have I secured a new job now but also formed a proper mindset on my future career development. Overall, it was a great experience. I highly recommend Harmonics to everyone. "

I strongly recommend Harmonics to any organisation needing support through a Restructuring of operations.”

"I have just completed the Harmonics Career Stocktake Program facilitated by Bernadette Butler over the last number of weeks. I can honestly say it has been one of the most informative and enjoyable programs of learning I have completed in 41 years of working in industry. This program has really helped me to understand and focus on where I want to take my career next, while also taking me on a valuable and worthwhile journey of self-discovery. Bernie helped to hone my CV and LinkedIn presence, while also working through the exercises within the structured program with a sense of drive and, also great fun. The journey has brought me to a point of great certainty on where I want to go next, and what I can do, and what I can achieve. I would sincerely like to thank Bernie for her engagement, drive, perspective and professionalism in the facilitation and delivery of the program, the great personnel advice offered, and the sense of fun throughout the delivery. I would highly recommend Bernadette Butler as a career coach and, also recommend the Harmonics Career Stocktake Program"

"Having taken voluntary redundancy I didn't anticipate the need for any outplacement support as I felt completely at peace with my decision. What came as a surprise to me however was the complete swirl in my mind when faced with the conundrum of "what next?". Thankfully Mary, my appointed career coach came to the rescue and I honestly cannot thank her enough. I felt completely at ease in her presence from the get-go and felt like my story and journey mattered. She helped me navigate my way out of the swirl to a place where I now have complete clarity on next steps. As part of our programme Mary recommended a 1:1 with Liam, Harmonics Market Intelligence Specialist, and that was another significant part of the journey for me I have to say. Both Liam and Mary were a joy to work with and such incredible professionals and experts in their respective fields. I feel extremely grateful to have had time with them and I really cannot recommend the Harmonics team and service enough."
