Selecting Employees for Redundancy or Redeployment

Fair and Objective Selection for Redundancy

If you have to take the unenviable decision to downsize or redeploy your workforce, we recommend that you implement a fair and objective process to ensure that you make the right decisions for the future of your business:

  • Implement highly objective and standardised processes, free from bias and fair to all participants
  • Help selecting employees for redundancy by assessing performance against clearly defined job-related competencies
  • Use appropriate simulations which reflect demands in the current or future job
  • Deliver processes with suitably qualified, skilled and experienced a&dc assessors, or develop in-house assessor capability with our tailored training courses
  • Consider performance systematically so that agreed selection decisions are made and, where appropriate, strengths and development needs identified
  • We also recommend that organisations making redundancies consider support for leavers, for example developing individual resilience

“During what was a very intense period, with staff emotions running high, a&dc worked closely with Arts Council England’s HR team to deliver this programme. With tight turnaround times and ever changing circumstances, their flexible approach was invaluable. a&dc remained in constant communication with us and were able to handle queries almost immediately.  I feel that we have been able to build excellent working relationships with the a&dc team and I am sure this will continue to grow.”
