Outplacement/Transition

Termination Planning

Business decline, mergers, acquisitions, changing strategies, product modification, job simplification, organizational culture change… these are today’s corporate realities leaving companies with no choice but to terminate employees from their workforce. The probability of lifelong employment has become the exception versus the rule in today's workplace. Yet, terminating employees from the organization is one of the most stressful and difficult tasks a manager has to do.  How terminations are handled is critical to the continued success of an organization.

Whether it is with a few people or a major downsizing, ending an employment relationship must be exercised with fairness, dignity and respect. Implementing effective termination strategies can help minimize the chance of litigation, maintain the morale of remaining employees and preserve the corporate reputation.
