How Tier One Consulting Overcame COVID-19

If there’s one thing 2020 has taught us thus far, it’s that adaptability is the name of the game. We couldn’t have predicted COVID-19 and the ripple effect it has caused, but there was no way we were going to let it hinder our mission in heading straight to the top. Our team at Tier One Consulting worked relentlessly to keep our goals in place, and our dedication in-tact.

“Adaptability is about the powerful difference between adapting to cope and adapting to win.” -Max McKeown

Once we learned the severity of this pandemic, we knew we needed to put a plan in place to ensure the safety of not just our teammates, but all those around us. For this reason, we ceased in-office operations and made the shift to solely remote work. While we knew our team was going to miss our dynamic company culture, our biggest priority was safety.

We began by joining in on daily virtual training calls and group meetings through Zoom video conferencing. Doing so inspired us to continue to dress for success, maintain a consistent routine, and work together as a group – all from the comfort of our homes. However, we didn’t stop there! Tier One Consulting was invited to join live digital conferences featuring top professionals in various industries. With student mentalities like ours, we couldn’t say yes faster!

That was just the beginning of our personal and professional development. We were inspired to take it to the next level by reading entrepreneurship books and listening to business podcasts. Though this situation was challenging, being surrounded by like-minded individuals with passionate goals made it easier to pull through and come out stronger.

Once we got the business side of things down, we knew we wanted to find a way to keep up our lively team culture. We are grateful for the advanced technology that allowed us to maintain our weekly team nights online! We were able to play digital games, live stream movies, and put on “happy hours” over video calls.

As we hope you can see, our team at Tier One Consulting is unlike any other. We collaborated and finalized a virtual recruitment module to continue our expansion – even during COVID-19! Interviews and hires for all positions have taken place online to adhere to social distancing best practices.

“The way a team plays as a whole determines its success. You may have the greatest bunch of individual stars in the world, but if they don’t play together, the club won’t be worth a dime.” -Babe Ruth

We can all agree this year has been unpredictable, but in the end, we have been given an opportunity to persevere, and in turn, rise above with resilience. We know that we are equipped to handle any future obstacles that may come our way, and we will do so together.

On behalf of Tier One Consulting, we wish you a safe and healthy rest of the year. For additional information regarding our services, job positions, culture, and more, we invite you to visit our LinkedIn page!
