Your company sent office workers home in March in a mad scramble to protect them from COVID19 and to keep your business alive. Now, as you plan the reopening of your office, it is clear that the future success of your business is at stake and the old normal is obsolete. A hybrid workforce and future office is at hand.
It is time to create the hybrid workforce that works for your organization and a new standard for a productive, innovative, less expensive, and safe and newly designed office environment.
Many companies discover that their HR capability limits the organization’s potential to grow profitably. It may be that the outsourced HR model, which met their needs at first, has now become limiting and too costly. Or that your HR practices, policies, and technologies have become outdated.
Whatever the reason, our comprehensive HR audits will improve your ability to recruit, motivate, and retain great talent–with a fantastic return on its investment.
We use a scientifically developed assessment to measure, benchmark, and improve your company’s culture and capability to innovate-and drive business results. The InnovationOne Health Index© identifies your company’s strengths and weaknesses that block the innovation of your employees and external partners. We will work with you to plan and implement strategies to improve your innovation and financial success.
Leadership coaching is extraordinarily helpful to executives (director and above) who are transitioning through a new leadership passage, need to improve some aspects of their leadership style, or making adjustments to their operating norms and mechanisms.
Effective recruiting enables a company’s top and bottom line. We provide recruiting audits and retained searches for executives and technology experts. Our recruiting audits will rapidly build your ability to source, screen, and hire extraordinary talent.
We have executive and leadership workshops designed to improve strategic focus and innovation, nurture transparent and collaborative cultures, build leadership capability, and unstick your stuck teams and kick off new teams.

Ron Mnieckowski, Partner, Operations, Maximus Real Estate Partners
Victor Assad brought invaluable experience from a solid corporate legacy position to help me better understand the US environment and the challenges I would face when making investment decisions on optimizing my customer-facing organization to execute on my company’s commercialization strategy.
In an easy approach and highly collaborative manner he proactively developed tangible solutions to issues such as ‘healthcare compliance’, ‘pay and commission structures’ and ‘recruitment policies’ that I faced as I developed the sales organization.
Victor excels at grasping the complexities of a specific situation and then applying his experience to bring solutions that are simple to understand and to implement.
I would strongly recommend Victor as somebody who would add value to a leadership team eager to bring a fresh insight to their sales organization or as someone to give pragmatic guidance to an executive working through a specific HR related challenge.
