Downsizing has become an increasingly necessary aspect of survival for businesses as they navigate ever-evolving and increasingly competitive markets.
Getting this wrong can create as many problems as it solves. It encourages negative rumors about your business. It creates fear in employees who you want to retain and keep motivated. It can be a catastrophic life experience for the people you are forced to lay off.
There is no alternative for many businesses to make these tough decisions. But it doesn’t have to be a negative experience for everyone involved.
Forward Motion has created a program which enables employers to support and assist the people you have to layoff.
Such programs are not new. They have been around for years and are typical called outplacement. But outplacement programs are off the shelf courses and guidance and few users find them helpful. They are also very expensive.
The difference is that Forward Motion works with each individual to solve the problem in a way that works for them. Every person has dedicated support which helps them transition with less fear and greater success. And this support reflects the different needs of people at different ages and levels of seniority.
