It’s time to rethink how changes in the workforce are being handled
As NAFTA pessimism continues to mount, the projected effects of the Trump tax cuts and potential auto tariffs on the Canadian economy have left more organizations bracing for economic disruption. For organizations unsure about the future, it may be time to rethink how changes in the workforce have been handled in the past. Instead of relying solely on layoffs to solve your labour challenges, consider taking a three-pronged approach; outplacement, redeployment and career development. In addition to offering support to employees who will not be remaining at the company, partnering with a contemporary outplacement services provider can help you identify ways to move people within your company and ensure that they’re successful once they move.
