Redundancies are often a difficult yet necessary part of the organisational change cycle. However, when poorly planned, redundancies can have a devastating impact on both the employees impacted by redundancy, and the ones left behind.
In October 2012, Choice Career Services gathered a panel of HR, legal and union experts who used a high-profile case study to discuss HR’s responsibilities in managing change. In part 1 of our video series, the panel members offer their perspectives on the following issues:
- What are the obligations of employers during periods of redundancy?
- How can HR minimise the impact of redundancies on the organisation, and maximise support to transitioning employees?
- How can services like outplacement help with the process?
- How can organisations mitigate legal and reputational risk?
