Our goal is to help you stay focused by providing guidance and support to enable you to deal with issues or decisions efficiently, effectively and successfully.
Poorly handled employee events create reputational risk for you in the market. The result is more costly and difficult hires because of how your firm may be perceived.
Inevitably, you need access to advice you can’t get or, in some cases, don’t want to get from internal resources.
Our Advisory and Consulting Services provide you with ready expertise that is focused on your success and your firm's success.
It’s lonely in the corner office. It's a phrase often heard, but it doesn't need to reflect your reality. You're running a successful firm. You probably have the best people working for you and are the master of your domain. Dealing with employee related issues is probably the last thing you want to deal with. It’s distracting, time consuming and it doesn’t typically play to your strengths. Worst of all, in your position, you typically don’t have an expert to talk to about the situation. More often than not, the issue falls squarely on your shoulders which means your employees are looking to you to come up with the right solution. Whether you're the Founder, CFO, COO or GC you may not have experienced these issues before. The question is simple; do you have the expertise to come up with the best solutions while protecting the best interests of your firm? Even if you have expertise in-house there are occasions, for whatever reason, you may not want to involve others internally. At these critical points in time, you need access to that expertise and you want it when you want it.
While you care about your employees, you don’t want to be distracted by them. Your core expertise is producing returns for your investors. Everything else is a distraction, especially dealing with employee-related matters. As one very senior manager said “Management would be easy if I didn’t have to deal with employees.” Another PE senior portfolio manager said “65% of my time is spent dealing with management and employment issues in my portfolio companies – not my strength, not my desire.” As the head of an enterprise, management and employee related issues are inevitable. Will the time invested and the results of your decisions provide the return you're looking for? You know you’d benefit by seeking out the counsel of an expert on how to deal with those issues. They take more of your time than you can spare and they’re keeping you from your main responsibility – making money. What is your cost of ‘interrupted power’?
Your best advisor should give you advice that is objective, timely, candid and grounded in the alternative investment management arena. The dynamics of an organization create individuals who are reluctant to jeopardize the ‘hand that feeds them’ or the relationship that’s been built. Some are lucky and do have an individual to whom they can turn. But many don’t. That’s the solution ALPHA HC CONSULTING provides.
