Make the most out of change
Our services in the field of HR consulting and redundancy management take the form of specialist training courses which empower managers to optimise their communication in redundancy and change scenarios within the context of restructuring projects. Where required, we are also available to lead consultation sessions with affected employees, which may or may not involve the participation of their superiors.
Training courses for managers
The success of any restructuring project is dependent on targeted preparation for related discussions, a sufficient level of empathy and clear communication. Our courses consist of practically oriented modules that give managers the tools they need in order to ensure constructive communication in redundancy scenarios. In particular, they learn how to successfully communicate unpopular corporate decisions and appropriately address employees affected by cutbacks. The outcome is goal-oriented yet respectful, appreciative communication that guarantees smooth transitions in times of upheaval. What is more, it also helps maintain and enhance the motivation and productivity of employees who are set to see their colleagues leave the company.
Employee consultation sessions and redundancy meetings
Independent advice provided by a third party offers a number of advantages for companies and affected employees alike. Companies benefit from the resultant reduction in frictional loss, while employees experience neutral advice as fair and convincing. In the latter case, this increases the likelihood of employees giving serious thought to – and perhaps accepting – the offers tabled by their employer. The key ingredient in our recipe for success is fair, clear consultation sessions which provide affected employees with comprehensive information and constructive, forward-looking input – thus enabling them to come to a knowledge-based decision.
In our experience, a combination of clearly communicated restructuring measures and fair redundancy meetings leads to a high level of acceptance among employees.
