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

Changing landscape

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.
