[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 of valuable assistance. The release or downsizing of employees is a very emotional process, and there are considerations that should be taken into account. Ultimately, the focus is to provide the necessary support and assistance to the affected employees, helping to prepare them for a successful job search.
It is important to note that those remaining employees can find reassurance that the employer is providing support to those displaced employees, which adds hope should any existing employee become downsized
