Business as Unusual - How HR Strategy Pro can Support you during Coronavirus

March 16, 2020

A few thoughts from our Co-Founder Nick Butcher on what the Coronavirus means for HR Strategy Pro, it’s clients and how we can support you and your business during this time.

As he says in the article we are all in this together, both personally and professionally and no matter of business or industry.

Whilst we don't proclaim to have an answer or cure to the current situation, we are currently supporting our clients with a range of HR issues that this is bringing, so if you need any support or have any questions please do call Nick on 0784 368 0966 or email nickbutcher@hrstrategypro.co.uk

We are here to help where we can!

Business as Unusual


As I sit here, I’m surrounded by tv screens with messages of uncertainty and cancellations due to COVID-19, the Coronavirus. Whether you agree or disagree with the measures that are being taken to keep us safe, certainly in my life time I’ve never seen anything like this and since the news started to break a few weeks ago it’s really made myself and the team here reflect on “what does this mean for HR Strategy Pro and our clients?”.

After all, we are a business that focuses on People Strategy and Development and is proud of the relationships we have established and built through face to face contact and bringing people together through events and training.

However, in many ways this has now given us an opportunity to really look at our business and the service we provide to find out what happens when potentially we take the front facing people element out of a people business - but also where our service can really add value at this very uncertain times for all businesses, no matter what industry we are in.

The answer? Well I wouldn’t say we are 100% there however, below I have put a summary of how we are looking to improve our service to adapt to the current climate and also how HR Strategy Pro can support your business during these very different times for business.

HR Strategy and Support

First of all, it goes without saying that actually it is probably now the most important time for businesses to be taking professional advice when it comes to managing their employee strategy during the Coronavirus. This doesn’t however need to be face to face and we have put resource into e-meeting software such as “Zoom” where we can conduct meetings with both employer or employee. Also as we are all looking for answers and guidance in the current situation - last week we sent out Policies and Procedures that the CIPD had sent across to us with regards to Coronavirus to our clients and contacts that we thought might appreciate them! We will continue to do this as we get more information, so if you would like us to send this to you also, please do let us know.

It's also worth reminding everyone that we have always offered our 30 minute FREE HR Business Check, so you do have any questions you think we might be able to help with, you can book your appointment. Get in touch below.
