Outplacement services have become increasingly popular in recent years, especially for employers who have to lay off workers. Many employers have decreased the incidence of litigation and increased outgoing employee morale and their opinion of the company by offering outplacement services as a benefit, ensuring that separating employees have access to career services such as coaching and resume writing.
Coaching and other career development services are also available for employees who wish to develop leadership skills, improve communication, and plan their long-term career goals. Sisu-Ursu provides customized services that give your employees the one-on-one assistance they need.
Diane Ursu was inspired by her five years of workforce development experience to start Sisu-Ursu. She transitioned into employment services after moving to Metro Detroit following five years of adventurous living in Michigan's northernmost peninsula, the Keweenaw.
"Sisu" expresses the Finnish spirit of "having guts"—moving forward with perseverance and tenacity. It is precisely the spirit and attitude one needs to advance in a career, find a new job, start a business, or embark on any other life-changing experience, whether business or personal. One of the greatest compliments anyone has paid her is, "You've got sisu!"
A United States Army Veteran, Ursu earned her Master of Business Administration from Northwood University and a is Global Career Development Facilitator (GCDF). She also earned a Bachelor of Science in Organizational Management from Spring Arbor University and an Associate of Applied Science in Diagnostic Medical Sonography (Ultrasound) from Baker College of Owosso.
