In times of financial distress, leaders face tremendous pressure to restructure their businesses — preserving stakeholder value, business continuity and jobs. Successful turnarounds require both a financial restructuring and operational recovery.


Aligning human capital strategy with strategic objectives is crucial for success. Workforce risk analysis must happen at the beginning of the restructuring process rather than as an afterthought. This analysis needs the same strategic focus as stabilizing the operations and defining the turnaround strategy.
