Many organisations are considering employment costs and embarking on restructuring and redundancies.

Cuts in funding, pension deficits, geo-policitcal concerns and increasing competition are leading many to consider workforce reconfiguration.

Topics include:

  • What are the essential ingredients of a redundancy procedure?
  • Choosing the correct pool for redundancy
  • Restructuring of senior posts
  • Choosing the right criteria for selection
  • Applying the criteria
  • Information and consultation
