Despite the unemployment rate of 5.6% in July 2017, down from 5.7% in June, companies still need to prepare for staff layoffs and terminations.
As organisations strive to get lean, go through mergers and acquisitions, and continue to automate and outsource non-core business operations, downsizing happens in the best of companies. Downsizing has an enormous impact on employees transitioning out, their families’, the organisation’s customers and suppliers, the local community, and employees that remain along with the key stakeholders.
Redundancy is an emotional experience for employees and employers alike. How the process is handled can have a tremendous impact on an organisation’s standing, reputation and performance.
