Redundancy & Restructuring Programmes
Whether you are scaling up, or scaling down, the most difficult part is the restructure of roles, the subsequent impact on your employees and what potential new skills you may need going forwards.
Over 30 years experience
In today’s economic climate business restructuring has become commonplace across almost all sectors, however for many organisations this still remains a difficult and often emotive challenge. There are many different ways to go about rationalising a business, giving business owners increased opportunity to reshape the business for future development and growth.
However, if a restructuring programme is not carefully planned and executed, such processes can result in claims of unfair selection or dismissal and can leave ‘survivors’ (remaining employees) feeling demoralised.

What our clients say
Optimal People and Business are experts in all things HR. We worked successfully with them to produce a series of information videos to help businesses during the Corona lockdown. We are looking forward to working with them again in the near future as we grow our business.
We personally dealt with Vici at Optimal and she was a delight. She was open and honest and gave great advice and guidance. She helped us deal with what could have been a very difficult dismissal with a problematic member of staff. I would not hesitate to recommend Vici to any business for their HR.
Can’t thank Mel and the team enough. Really helped my business in a crisis. Looking forward to working with you and the team.

5* all round, Mel was extremely helpful and answered all my questions, very friendly and professional. Recommended to others and would definitely use again. Thank you again Mel and Helen.
Mel and her team are fantastic, help me all along the way with some complex issues. Couldn't recommend more.
I've used Optimal PBS on a couple of occasions now to assist with due diligence on an acquisition i've been working on and also to provide contract and handbook production. Cannot fault the support or advice provided.
We love this company and Mel is a god send to our business, she sorted everything for us from employee contracts to helping us source the right accountant, she is at the end of the phone whenever I have any HR questions (even when on holiday) can not fault her commitment. Keep up the good work!
