Time to get your head out of the sand…

Have you put off talking to staff about restructuring and job losses in the hope that things will get better? The COVID curveball has dealt many businesses a devastating blow, but it could become become terminal if you bury your head in the sand for too long.

For many of you, who’ve had to furlough staff in recent months, the news that the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme will be ending in October should have acted as a wake up call. If you’ve done the number crunching and the figures don’t add up, you’re going to need to face up to the uncomfortable truth and come up with a plan.

So what’s holding you back?

Is the thought of having to announce job losses weighing heavy on your mind?

Is it that you’ve never had to instigate a redundancy programme before and you’re not sure how to go about it?

For any employer fully invested in their business, it’s a difficult prospect losing the employees they’ve spent time recruiting, developing and building up relationships with.

So why not let us support you on this particular journey?  We’ve been on both sides of the redundancy fence, as HR business partners and as ‘at risk’ employees, and know all about planning carefully and executing sensitively…

If you’d like to know what a fair redundancy process looks like, what ‘meaningful’ consultation involves and how to pool and select employees for redundancy, our Redundancy Pack For Small Employers offers:

  • a plan and supporting guidance on how to implement a fair process; and
  • template communications including staff announcements, consultation checklists and redundancy notice letters.

You’ll also get an hour to tap into Talkaround where we’ll spend time exploring your particular circumstances and explain how you can tailor the process and documents to suit them.

This pack has been developed with tight budgets in mind. With a one off cost of £399 plus VAT, you’ll be able to keep costs under control.
