As your business evolves, you may need to change how it operates, or how it’s structured.
A well-managed reorganisation or restructure can help you achieve greater efficiencies, do better business, and plan more effectively for the future. But unless you engage with your employees openly around any potential changes – positive or negative – you can hit problems.
A fair redundancy process isn’t as simple as telling someone you have to let them go. It involves several stages, including selection, consultation, and the consideration of alternative employment. It’s a delicate undertaking, and it’s also important to factor in the effects it will have on those remaining in the business and the stress for those involved in managing the process.
That’s where our expertise can be invaluable. We work closely with you to achieve the desired business results, while making sure the support is there to make it all as painless as possible for everyone concerned. This can involve, for example, attending meetings with you, preparing documents and hearing appeals.
We can help you with every step of the process for dealing with restructuring and redundancies. That includes initial planning, consultation and review, right through to implementation and conclusion. Depending on the nature of the restructure and the number of people involved, you might trigger collective consultation duties, which means starting the planning and the actual process much earlier.
