GRECO NAMED TO EXPERT COUNCIL for CRISIS MANAGEMENT AGENCY FIRESTORM

May 26, 2011, FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

HOUSTON, TX − Few events are as devastating to a company, and its people, than the need to reduce its workforce.  This type of crisis requires immediate action to ensure business continuity and forward movement for the affected employees.

Enter Carolyn Greco, who has been tagged by crisis management services agency Firestorm to serve on its expert council for Corporate Outplacement, Executive and Management Rescue and Pre-Employment/Background Screening.

Firestorm, whose expert council includes such dignitaries at Russel Honoré, C. Everett Koop, MD and David Satcher, MD, PhD.,  assists companies in preparing for the worst and managing the decision required in an immediate crisis. Firestorm was most famously called in following the aftermath of the Virginia Tech shootings.

Greco is CEO of FACET (http://facetgroup.com/), a Career Management Consulting firm based in Houston and Lafayette, LA. Her organization helps companies through the reduction in force (RIF) process, serving to manage the crisis by minimizing the risk for management, HR and both the affected and remaining employees. Her “Rescue Programs” coach executives and managers in the skills they need to step into new roles, thus advancing their careers and enhancing the company’s overall performance.

FACET and Firestorm agree that ‘every crisis is a human crisis,’ and that absolutely defines the situation when a company is forced to reduce its workforce. The key to minimizing the fallout for all involved is pre-planning and swift action once a RIF is announced,” said Greco. “No company wants to be in this position, but when they have no other options, making a choice to bring in outplacement and crisis management professionals will ultimately ensure the best possible outcome for everyone,” she added.

Once the crisis has passed and the process of rehiring begins, Greco is onboard to provide the necessary pre-employment and background screening of job candidates.  FACET subsidiary Compliance Background Screening Services, a global employment screening company, pre-qualifies candidates using the most accurate and up-to-date information available from direct sources.

“Our goal at FACET is always to help companies maintain their flow of business while managing their human resource needs,” Greco explained.

About Firestorm

Firestorm believes that a culture of preparedness is the foundation of success. Such a culture centers your organization on sound governance principles of responsibility and accountability. It enables and guides your organization should you face hostile conditions or if your business environment is compromised.

Disaster readiness and enterprise value go hand-in-hand. Both are dynamic, forward-looking and expectations-based. The ability of management to plan for unexpected business-compromising situations, and be effective in turning them around, is more important in driving business recovery than the direct financial consequences of the disaster. Promoting and enforcing a culture of readiness protects a company’s assets. Firestorm’s Disaster Due Diligence process does just that.
