Business reorganisation (which could include redundancy management) is a necessity to remain competitive, manage costs, deliver excellent service and meet the changing demands of the environment in which small and medium sized businesses operate.
Invariably, reorganisations will result in redundancy. Successful change will always require detailed planning and preparation. Whilst poor planning will result in demotivated and disengaged staff and potential tribunal claims.
AB HR Solutions can support with all aspects of business reorganisation and restructure, including redundancy management. This will ensure the new business structure is “fit for purpose”.
For instance, we can support in areas such as:
- Planning and communication exercises.
- Redundancy selection criteria.
- Consultations – conducting collective and individual consultations.
- Payments calculations.
- Providing telephone helpline support and a step by step approach.
- Facilitating support for redundant employees – outplacement, CV writing, interview skills.
- Briefing notes, template announcement letters and management briefings.
- Line management skills training.
- Writing job descriptions and role profiles for newly created roles in the structure.
- Full support in the redundancy and restructuring process.
Reorganisation and change will always be difficult and unsettling because it affects people and their futures. For that reason, external support is often appropriate when dealing with employees you have worked closely with for many years. It can be hard to separate personal feelings and the need to make the right decision for the business.
Using a company such as AB HR Solutions will help take some of the emotional turmoil away from you, although be assured, we do handle all redundancy matters sensitively and with compassion. Our experience has shown that effective planning, preparation and communication are critical to any reorganisation.
Above all, as a business you will also have the challenge of delivering the expected if not improved level of service to clients. With AB HR Solutions helping support you on the restructuring side of things, you can concentrate on clients and securing work to keep your business progressing and operating for future growth.
