Redundancy - managing the change and understanding the options


This course looks at the options available to any organisation facing a redundancy situation because of a downturn in activity or staff changes resulting from a re-structure.

Business need

Change is a constant feature in workplaces. Effective consultation with employees can unlock alternatives to redundancy and help you find the best way forward for affected individuals and your organisation.

Throughout the day Acas will demonstrate effective ways of planning and delivering a redundancy programme, and how to engage and support employees affected by organisational change.
