Effective restructuring processes
Whether you're transitioning a few people or thousands, Lee Hecht Harrison has the resources and expertise to help you plan an effective restructuring and outplacement strategy and manage the transition process from start to finish. Most importantly, we'll help ensure that your affected employees are constructively engaged in transition activities, and that the employees you retain remain productive, committed, and focused.
As an organisation, ask yourself:
- How can we manage a downsizing event so that we maintain our reputation as an employer of choice and attract new talent for other parts of the company?
- What challenges do we anticipate facing from our various stakeholders during a downsizing; for instance, the community, stockholders, customers, managers, and employees?
- What outcomes would we like to achieve from transition services; for instance, a high level of satisfaction with the service from the individuals we sponsor and/or a high utilisation of services?
- What is our process for the notification and separation of employees and key executives who need to move on?
LHH can comprehensively manage your transition's events and increase your ability to retain your organisations brand equity, your reputation as an employer of choice, and ultimately your best people.
We help you with the upfront planning that is essential for effective and successful transitions. Through providing advice on communication strategy, project planning and milestones, and effective manager notification training, we help you achieve positive outcomes.
Resiliency and workforce productivity.
We help you assess productivity challenges brought on by the transitioning of affected employees. We provide solutions for working through those challenges and also help employees and managers successfully navigate within a changing organisation. Services can be delivered before and after a downsizing event.
Often, some areas of an organisation are downsizing while others are recruiting. Transition and recruiting costs can be reduced by redeploying employees affected by a downsizing to areas in need of talent. We have processes to identify affected employees who could be redeployed into other positions and to facilitate their transition.
