New Horizons - supporting people through redundancy, transition and change

COVID19 has had a profound effect on us as individuals and on our organisations. Our working world as we know it has changed significantly and as we start to look ahead to a different future many organisations are finding themselves facing very challenging times.

Some of you have the difficult task of having to make valued employees redundant. This is an unenviable task at any time, let alone when to many it would have been unthinkable just a few months ago. This pressure and uncertainty can be very stressful and worrying, and can have a significant impact on employee wellbeing.

HR teams and managers will be heavily involved in dealing with the impact of changes, as well as the process of redundancy and managing employees through the consultation and legal processes.

They may struggle to find time to proactively engage with employees to support them emotionally and practically with the impact of redundancy decisions - support which is arguably needed now more than ever. Even at a time when budgets are under pressure, getting it right now and treating those leaving the business well is important, to ensure your employer brand remains as strong as possible when growth returns. 

We can help support your organisation through this difficult time. Click on the infographic below for details.
