Associate Transitions Portal
To assist U.S. Cellular® associates who were directly impacted by the company’s agreement to sell its Chicago, St. Louis, central Illinois and three other Midwest markets to Sprint, we collaborated with U.S. Cellular to develop a custom “Associate Transitions Portal” (ATP) website―just one part of a larger strategic plan to assist the 765 associates impacted by the business deal.
The password-protected portal provided a robust “workbook” of resources designed to support transitioning associates throughout their entire job search process, from initial company research through negotiation strategies. The site also provided helpful guidance around managing change, career direction, self-assessment, resume and cover letter tips, interviewing guidelines and social networking. Associates were also able to post their resumes, search opportunities from local partner corporations interested in hiring professionals with their skill sets, read career news and receive updates on hiring events in their various markets.
