On the morning of March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) officially declared COVID-19, also known as coronavirus, a global pandemic after it has spread to more than 100 countries.
While we’re still trying to understand all of the implications of this situation, which is affecting people and businesses around the world, we wanted to share some resources to help you stay informed and prepared.

In addition to the resources above, please see below for additional ways that Alliance can help you and your business during these challenging times:
One of our core services here at Alliance is Human Resources (HR). We understand that many small and medium-sized businesses don’t have a dedicated HR department, and often struggle with things like employee retention and engagement, handbooks and company policies, education and training, compliance, and onboarding and offboarding procedures. Pamela Poulin, HR Director at Alliance, is happy to speak with you about how we can help you with all of these items, as well as items related to coronavirus such as: Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA), Pandemic Leave Policies, Work from Home Guides, and much more. Please contact us today if your company needs help in any of these areas.
