Let us help

For many managers, making people redundant is a new and unwelcome experience – almost as emotionally difficult for the manager as the employee.

Our industry experienced HR Managers have managed a wide range of redundancies, in a wide range of industries, from 1 or 2 people, groups of people/departments, to unit/company closures and the complicated restructuring following company mergers and TUPE situations.

Our experience shows it is possible to achieve business change whilst being fair and treating people with dignity and respect. It is not always comfortable, but handled well, people understand why the decision has been made and the company can grow from strength to strength.

Our help to you is tailored to your requirements and ranges from telephone advice, drafting plans/scripts and letters, attending meetings taking notes to managing the whole process from start to finish.

Irrespective of the numbers involved the following is key to success:-

  • Careful planning
