Prioritizing our people during the pandemic
Early on, the firm recognized the importance of managing the pandemic and formed a Business Continuity Team comprised of leadership representing various areas of the firm. The team is tasked with handling, addressing, and implementing all new policies and guidelines to ensure the safety of our clients and employees and adapt to changing conditions.
As a result, AlixPartners implemented new technologies to enable remote working, supported flexible working hours and has created additional paid-time-off allowance to help our people balance work and personal needs. We continue to survey our employees regularly throughout the pandemic, to gauge their needs and ensure they have the support they need now, and for whatever the "new normal" will look like.
As we shifted to remote working, we continued to recruit virtually, bringing in 100% of our summer intern cohort and taking candidates through our hiring process from application to on-boarding.
Taking ownership of our solutions
"What differentiates the work at AlixPartners from the work I've done earlier in my career is that we employ a results-driven approach. We act as direct counterparts to the management and lead them through the implementation of the measures, always prioritizing our clients’ bottom line. In short: we take ownership of our solutions, and focus on impact—not reports."

Gaining industry experience
I am grateful for the opportunities that I had to stay connected to colleagues and to the firm during my time as an AlixAlumnus.
"I recently became an AlixPartners “'boomerang' employee as I have returned to work for the firm after spending two years in the automotive industry. Attending firm events, including AlixAlumni events, helped me to stay up-to-date on firm news and connected to my Paris office colleagues.
"When I was ready for the next step in my career, I looked back to AlixPartners to find the challenging yet fulfilling work that will push me forward in my professional journey."

Making a difference
"I previously worked at various well-known firms as a forensic accountant. I was either assigned to client work by a Resource Manager who would match availability to project need or a lead partner who would pick team members based on their own references.
"I now have a new career as a Strategic Staffing Manager at AlixPartners and we have a very different approach. I take a rounded view of each consultant, working with them and project leaders to build appropriate project teams.
"It is not just a question of availability or favorites, it is about considering career goals, development needs and personal circumstances. I’m also in a unique position where I can work with our People Team to develop individual and collective training, which really supports an individual's progress. Having experienced what life can be like for aspiring professionals, I really believe that supporting our people in this way is an approach that makes a big difference in the long run."
