Managing Reorganisations, Restructures and Redundancies


JSB Change  I mainly only deliver open workshops in Asia and the Middle East, but there are also a couple of UK sessions where you can catch me over the next couple of months.

The first is a workshop on reorganisation and restructuring for JSB on 23rd November:

In an environment where change is the only constant, it is crucial that businesses are designed to respond and accommodate change. And as businesses are under increasing pressure to gain – and maintain – a competitive edge, reorganisations are now more commonplace than ever before. Yet businesses are often not fully equipped to plan, prepare and manage restructurings and reorganisations, potential redundancies, mergers and business transfers.

As well as the legal aspects involved in restructures, it is just as important for HR to understand and be able to implement the critical non-legal aspects of restructurings. Reorganisations are one of the biggest changes a business, and its workforce, can undergo. Dealing with staff morale, motivation, productivity and communication of change initiatives is just as important as legal compliance –effective management of change has shown to affect both the short-term and long-term performance of the business post-restructure. HR professionals must develop the skills and knowledge to successfully manage reorganisations and deal with the associated legal and people challenges.


I’ll also be delivering another session on HR and social media for JSB on 27th January 2011.
