Anne Rooney McCord, SPHR, SHRM-SCP, PI, AWI-CH
COO, Managing Partner, Senior Investigator
Anne has dedicated her career to building transformational work cultures that drive business results. She has over 20 years of Executive-level Human Resources experience in the high tech, start up and non-profit worlds and brings a client-centered vantage point to the ILG team.
Anne has extensive hands-on experience enabling growth through organizational transition. She is an expert in developing strategic responses to mitigate stress on people and systems that comes with growth and success. Anne has front line experience in managing the workplace through mergers and acquisitions, tailored leadership development initiatives, culture integration and post transaction Executive team building. Anne is a master in creating scaffolding to support an organization through crisis and has developed game plans for organizations to rebuild after investigations and high-profile incidents.
Anne also serves as one of the Firm’s two Lead Investigators, specializing in high profile and high litigation risk matters. Her investigations experience has included Sexual Harassment, discrimination based on protected class, hostile work environment, ethics violations, theft and misconduct. Anne has learned through these experiences that investigations, poorly managed, can stifle growth, create toxicity in an environment, and lead to employee turnover. Her investigations practice is informed by this practical client-side viewpoint. Anne’s professional experience in internal mediation gives her a unique perspective in assessing workplace dysfunction as an investigator, as she knows how to look at a problem from the vantage point of the third party neutral.
Anne heads up the Firm’s Strategic Response Team, which works with Boards of Directors and Executive Leadership to develop practical tools to drive cultural transformation and build concrete tools and mitigation strategies for the most difficult people challenges companies face.
The breadth of Anne’s experience brings a unique opportunity to ILG clients who may not only need to get to the bottom of a workplace concern, but who may also need tools and guidance to rebuild teams, minimize business disruption and grow through the investigations process on the back end. ILG is excited to bring her thought leadership to the team as we work to transform the workplace of tomorrow.
