Covington’s Global Workforce Solutions team leads efforts to achieve companies’ strategic business goals, particularly the intersection between areas such as global equity, employment, tax planning, and global mobility. 

We act as a central workforce hub during complex corporate transactions and initiatives. We analyze, plan, and then navigate the path forward across organizations, drawing together teams handling separate aspects of the process, but who often work without an internal coordinator overseeing the project holistically. We ensure that the right people are handling the right matters at the right time, in concert.

From our centralized vantage point, we are able to foresee workforce problems before they arise and use our extensive experience to manage companies’ most challenging projects efficiently.
