[Large or Small groups]

When your company finds itself forced to reduce a portion of the workforce, Compass Career Management Solutions, experts in career transition strategies, can be a valuable and beneficial assistance. The release or downsizing of employees is a very emotional process, and there are considerations that should be taken into account. Initially, the leader or employer needs to consider all who will be affected, considering commitments and obligations.  Then determine what arrangements will be required.  Ultimately, the focus is to provide the necessary support and assistance to the affected employees, helping to prepare them for a successful job transition and search.

It is important to note that those remaining employees should be assured that the employer is providing support to those displaced employees, which helps to keep those special employees needed, giving them hope should any existing employee become downsized.
