Road to Recovery: Human Capital Pain Relief

This current COVID-19 environment has created many opportunities for organizations to find different ways of growing through new thinking and activities, sometimes on a daily basis. When it comes to your most precious asset; your people, the multitude of decisions can sometimes feel overwhelming. Our team is available to partner with your Human Resource department. If you are a company that does not have a formal HR department, we can fulfill that important role for you.

In this article in a series entitled “Pain Relief”, we are sharing some of the practical ways that members of our human capital consultants are partnering with clients during this crisis. If you are interested in some additional support for your organization, reach out to us at

Here are three key areas where you may need support:

1) Consulting support

With our customized approach to a client’s specific needs, we work with you to develop the most effective support package for you. Some of the current needs may be:

  • Return to the office and continued risk assessment
  • Policies and procedures updates related to our current environment
  • Work from home and in-office planning
  • Furlough and layoff guidance
  • Job description updates
  • Employee policy evaluations

2) Fractional/Interim support

HR department staff have been overwhelmed by all of the changes that have needed to be made during the past few months. Many times, simply having another HR expert to share the workload and collaborate on important components of the management of people is invaluable. Additionally, we have a team of individuals at the ready to jump in and take on an interim role within your company.

3) Leadership Coaching support

Being a good manager and leader is most important during challenging times. Our clients appreciate the support provided by our coaches as they develop, communicate, and roll out big decisions that affect the company and its people. Positioning your managers and leaders to thrive, not just survive is the cornerstone of great leadership and success.

If your organization is discussing how to best proceed for the remainder of 2020, we are happy to collaborate with you. Sharing what other successful organizations are doing to navigate the incredibly important task of managing your talent with success may be helpful. Reach out to us at for more details.
