DETERMINING HOW TO HANDLE WORKFORCE REDUCTION

Consider who is affected & their Challenges

If you/employer find it necessary to reduce your workforce, there are a few factors to consider in order to know what would be best for all concerned.  Also, how this is handled is extremely important.  There is no surprise for those familiar with the reduction of employees as why some released employees become so irritated and angry about how this is handled.

Most employees are genuinely hard workers, and make every effort to do their best at their jobs, which is why they are so intensely upset when released from their jobs.  Even those who have felt that they are working hard, though they may not be the best at their positions or are not as passionate about their work, are seriously angry when given their notices.  Those who are not excited about their careers may still consider themselves “hard working”.

Therefore, these released employees will often find themselves absolutely irate when given their notice of being released.  Consequently, these people may become extremely outraged and may even find their emotions become “out-of-control”.  A person’s job is one of the most important aspects of a person’s life.  It is a big part of their identity and is a huge factor of a person’s self-esteem.  With this in mind, employers are encouraged to understand that releasing employees at these times can trigger extreme emotions.
