It’s been said before, and it will be said again. We are currently facing unprecedented times. Due to this uncertainty, organisations are making fast, impactful decisions to help minimise the effect COVID-19 is having on their ability to operate.

As HR people, we know that labour is usually the largest cost to an organisation, and in financially tight times, people are usually the first to go. It is likely almost every company in the world is looking at reducing cost through reducing its workforce, and if you are in HR, this is likely a topic that has already been discussed at your organisation.

It is recognised that fast decisions are needing to be made to save many organisations, but that doesn’t mean that empathy in the redundancy process needs to be overlooked.

Join us at this webinar where we discuss practical steps to build empathy into the redundancy process to ensure people leaving the organisation leave through a positive experience.
