Redundancies in the Recession

Entered by: Jon Rush @ 13:35:42 on 30/04/09

In these times of recession, redundancy seems to be one of the most widely used words by all tiers of management at the moment. Having been through a number of redundancy programmes as a manager, I can say that this is a very challenging time for SME businesses. There are a few things to remember when considering a redundancy programme to make the process as smooth and painless as possible for all concerned:-

- Do follow the Statutory Redundancy process as set out by current Employment legislation

- Do make sure that if you have limited redundancy experience, you engage a qualified professional to advise you

- Do make sure the employees being selected for redundancy are the right ones for the business and not for personal reasons

- Do ensure that the business continuity will not be affected by losing key people by mistake or misunderstanding

- Do communicate the future business plan with existing employees as soon as possible after the redundancy process has been completed 

- Don't select "First In Frst out"

- Don't let rumour and hearsay disrupt staff morale

If the above hints are adhered to, your redundancy process should be completed with a minimum of disruption and stress. For more information on how we can help you with your redundancies contact our human resources specialists now for more information.
