Real Coaching
not Real Estate

At many legacy models, skyrocketing real estate costs are driving shorter outplacement packages and squeezing out dedicated coaching.

We believe cubicles have never been less important and great coaching has never been more important. By eschewing real estate costs, we are able to provide MORE of what really matters across the board.

That means, you get biggest bang for your budgeted buck. We guarantee unmatched personalized outplacement support and deliver more coaching, more touch and more tools without breaking your budget.

Custom Programs to Match Your Needs

The Five O’Clock Club offers customized and scalable programs for every level of employment.

We qualify our coaches to work with individuals at four different tiers, starting with Tier 1: Staff and Managers and rising to Tier C: C-Level Executives. Only a handful of our coaches are qualified by us to work with the most senior executives.


tfc_outplacement_customprogramsWe have a short list of coaches that have worked extensively with people with disabilities. We work with the long-term disability programs at some of the major insurance companies. Helping individuals find a new line of work when they have become disabled from their previous line of work is challenging but very rewarding work.

For individuals who require services in a language other than English, TFC matches that individual with a private coach who speaks a common language, including: Spanish, French, Italian, Hebrew, German, Hindi, Urdu, Bangla, Punjabi, Marathi, Chinese Mandarin, Japanese, and Taiwanese.

Along with our traditional outplacement offerings, TFC offers a customizable workshop option for tradespeople. For example, we created a custom workshop series that was applicable for warehouse workers being terminated due to a facility closing. This support consisted of a two-day workshop focused on crafting effective resumes, making the most of online job boards, and interviewing essentials. Our coach-facilitators tailored the working sessions to the specific needs of the warehouse workers. It was extremely well-received.
