Redundancy is one of the toughest situations faced by individuals and businesses, understanding the effects on the person, teammates and organisation is crucial to managing the process.
Due to the unpredictable nature of business, you do not know when you will have to make redundancies, but one certainty is that the process is dreaded by everyone involved: those losing their jobs and the business owners and managers making the decisions.
Redundancies happen for various reasons and most businesses face having to make them at some point. The recent economic downturn has seen redundancies escalate rapidly across most sectors and due to the complex and sensitive nature it is advisable to engage the services of an HR professional to help you with the whole process.
