Job Redundancy Service for Your Company and Redundant Staff
Business quite often describes people as their most valuable asset. Certainly the investment involved in employing, inducting, training and developing people is substantial.
In most cases these investments are the largest single cost items that a business experiences and this is why business seeks maximum return on their investment
by expecting peak performance from their staff.
The decision to employ more staff is generally taken at the most strategic level supported by a strategic plan with goals and objectives articulated
over a 3 - 5 year period and underpinned by annual budgets.
Quite often the help of professional services are sought to recruit and select the best people to achieve the strategic objective.
Retention programs are also put into place to ensure that the investment is not wasted.
Similarly, when a strategic decision is made to downsize for whatever reason a similar process should be followed.
It is probably even more critical to get the process right due to the potential damage that can be done to your business.
If your original strategy was one of growth and you intend to return to that strategy when the conditions are right then you need to ensure that you can retain your reputation
as an employer and retain your best and most productive people.
Unfortunately, as soon as your staff get any inkling of the dreaded "R" (redundancy) word, they will start to ask themselves how secure will their own job be going forward?
They will tend to focus on themselves rather than achieving results for the Company and quite often they will start looking around for a new and potentially more secure position.
It also follows that the best performers will be the ones that will get jobs first and thus potentially put your business at risk.
They will also very closely observe how those who are selected for redundancy are treated and make a decision for themselves on the fairness or otherwise of the process.
There are no guarantees in business but at least you can mitigate the risk with the right assistance and professional advice. Following are some of the ways we can assist you.
All programs will be tailored to suit your organization.
