At every position we’ve taken as senior HR leaders and employment counsel, we walked into costly messes that could have been prevented if there were a few critical things in place to set the company up for success. There have been some near disasters as well, such as misclassified employees at time of hire causing huge cost overruns, out of compliance handbooks creating real time legal risk, employee leaves of absence being mishandled affording employees false legal protection, outside legal counsel who took their eye off the ball and generated risk, or variable compensation plans that demotivated literally everyone on the management team who wasn’t included.
In each of these situations the challenges could have been prevented with knowledgeable HR and legal partnering with the business leaders.
Early to mid-stage life sciences and high tech leaders recognize a significant gap in their important business foundation -- the smart, legal and efficient way to build their human capital infrastructure without investing in in-house HR or overpriced employment lawyers.
To address this critical need, we launched Chameleon Strategies, LLC a unique consulting practice offering on-demand senior level HR and employment law expertise specifically for life sciences companies, B2B firms servicing life sciences companies, and high tech companies!
