The coronavirus crisis is now unfolding fast and merciless in front of our incredulous eyes.
Sadly, we will not be able to avoid the loss of lives and the heartbreaking global human impact of this catastrophic outbreak. There is nothing we can really do to escape its seismic waves as they severely hit markets, industries, business and jobs.
Ad Capita Executive Search is very conscious of its responsibilities. With fellow consultants and ongoing mandates in all the affected countries, we immediately took every precaution to ensure the health and safety of our people, their families and the surrounding communities. We first started implementing a limited travel policy that applied both ways to consultants as to customers or candidates visiting our offices. We rescheduled all of our global conferences as well as international and domestic events. Very quickly we started the transition of our teams to remote working environments.
Although it is still uncertain how it is going to end it will make a huge difference how decisive our behaviour must be to tackle it. Speed is absolutely critical in dealing with these unprecedented exponential challenges and ambiguities.
Our firm is profoundly aware of its categoric imperative to act – promptly and unconditionally – providing objective outlooks, consultative guidance and sense of continuity, to our customers, candidates and to the diverse business communities we are connected with.
With 60 affiliated offices worldwide and a client portfolio of thousands of companies covering virtually every continent, industry and function, Ad Capita as the exclusive INAC member firm for Portugal, is in a very unique position to rapidly gather intelligence from partners and consultants who are currently immersed in shaping solutions, advising and supporting executives, leadership teams and boards in every way possible, exploring together all options available so your company may be better equipped to what’s coming.
Stay safe. Stay prepared. Stay closer.
