Return to Normality
Once cash-flow is stabilized, we work with you to correct the underlying problem(s). This can include addressing cost-containment issues. Finally, we work with management to create a system of financial evaluation that allows management to track the company’s progress and prevent any future downturn.

SEWN works with you to streamline your company’s operation. Inefficient procedures can hinder your business’s success, whether on the assembly line or in administration. Identifying and correcting those operating issues can save your business time and money.
We'll work with you to evaluate all aspects of your operations: production, marketing, sales, finance, and/or human resources. Our team can serve as facilitator or project manager to help you restructure your operations, as well as refer you to the appropriate private or public resources.
SEWN works to open a dialogue between your firm’s management and workforce to create the most productive workplace possible. Companies achieve the highest productivity when they promote a positive work environment and ensure that all their workers have the necessary knowledge, skills, and motivation to do their jobs. When workplace relations deteriorate, so does productivity. We are sensitive to the concerns of management and workers, and have extensive experience in facilitating open dialogue between the two. This can be an important strategy in turning your business around and preventing layoffs.
