As you know, we’re going through some very challenging times. People are being laid off around the world without warning and, in many cases, without any support.
Downsizing, retrenchment, call it what you will – the whole area of redundacy is fraught with danger and painful emotion.
However, it doesn’t all have to be doom and gloom. My recent podcast guest, Jamie Getgood, has helped build strategies that have revolutionised and streamlined the redundancy process.
These strategies help protect the company from legal fallout, protect the brand from negative press, engage and support leaders and, best of all, the strategies help the people involved. These are people with families, children, mortgages and bills who need to transition through this difficult process.
Jamie helped General Motors Holden, one of Australia’s largest car manufacturers, through closure of its operations in Australia and he was a leading voice in the closure of the whole industry.
Jamie has also won several awards for his service and we discussed:
- Redundancy horror stories
- Redundancy by Zoom
- Jamie’s redundancy program called The People Shift – The Ultimate Guide to Responsible Employee Redundancies
- The partner program for consultants in the HR industry
- Using The People Shift program in different countries
