our purpose

Why?

Match & Cover was born of an ideal that many leaders are ready to be “untethered” from permanent corporate responsibilities. When the pandemic began, many seasoned executives began considering how to pull back on their previous working pace, yet they didn’t want to give up access or connection to people, challenges, problem solving, and leadership.  

While we were managing changes in the world environment and fighting persistent Zoom fatigue at home, other things were also transitioning in the workplace. The need for leadership was more critical than ever. Much to everyone’s surprise, business didn’t implode during the pandemic – it skyrocketed. From startups to the largest corporations, many sectors exploded with growth. And while business was booming – more than ever, employees were profoundly in need of a full slate of leadership and continuity.

Leaders are ready to work less. Transformation and growth are creating more work than ever. And in a hybrid workplace, employees need high-touch leadership to do their best work. New models are needed to make the #futureofwork successful – Match & Cover has it. 

The Future of Work

Perfect Storm?
Or Perfect Opportunity?

Successful senior leaders are more likely to be in a position to exit the workforce earlier than normal. They no longer value the constant high-pressure roles — but they also don’t want to completely forfeit connection and the excitement of solving challenging problems. With Match & Cover, they can have it both ways. 

It’s no surprise retention is such a challenge. We have an overtaxed workforce that is greatly in need of continuity and support, inside a new lower-touch remote paradigm that often leaves them without clarity or a game plan for their career growth.

A fast-evolving workplace in high-growth mode with a mass of projects to support mergers, infrastructure investments, and other preparations to make companies more valuable is forcing leaders to choose between building channels for future growth vs managing their teams for retention and engagement.

Corporate benefits are stronger than ever to retain employees. These perks come at a cost, with benefits like extended parental leave and sabbaticals increasing the strain on teams experiencing leadership-impacting work conditions. 

“2020 altered our workplace models and gave us a different lens for how the #futureofwork could function. ”

The rules... had changed.

The Future of Work – has Arrived

How We're Different

We’ll Match & Cover your needs now. Our current and available talent portfolio includes executives who have enjoyed successful careers and now prefer to stay active on occasional interim long-term strategic projects.  

They’re sophisticated and seasoned. They already understand the challenges and will hit the ground running to keep your teams on track to deliver results. In most cases, we can also set engagement deliverables for difficult projects where an experienced outside party can drive your critical organizational projects to completion.  

Extra bandwidth, additional experience, autonomy to deliver critical projects. Win-Win-Win.
