Business Manager Avocado
Avocado offers life & business coaching services since december 2019, it has now over 50 life coaching specialists and over 200 individual coaching sessions. Also, the legal consults and psychotherapy services are available starting June 15.
The need for such a service was existing for a while on the Romanian market, following already tested and validated models on international scale, and was accentuated by the Covid pandemic.
We chose Avocado because it is a new tool on the market, it has a future and is of big help during those times. For us, it was important to give this instrument to a whole team in order to support common objectives, team ones, besides the individual ones. Coaches are professionals, with experience and that can handle well the online environment. It is a very good and suited instrument for the teams working remotely or for teams in the country

Avocado.red is supported by the 18 years expertize of BestJobs.
The current situation brought and brings changes at the work market level. People need guidance and, probably, after the crisis, companies will need new benefits to attract and keep their talents. Building a platform that brings consultants and experts closer to people is one through which BestJobs expands its impact, with the desire to serve and avoid changes on the work market
Avocado.red start-up focuses for now on the Romanian market and also has a few international specialists that can be accessed on the platform. Its future plans also include expansion at European level.
