The economic downturn coupled with rising operating costs means some businesses are facing challenging decisions for their workforce. If redundancies are considered, it is people professionals’ role to ensure that the choices and implications are properly considered. Listen to our panel of experts as they discuss how to deal with organisational downsizing or changes, to review and limit potential job losses and treat your people with compassion and care, as well as the legal considerations whatever the decision.

Our panel of experts include:

  • Madeleine Stevens, Senior Lecturer in HRM at Liverpool John Moores University
  • Katie Obi, Chief People Officer at Beamery
  • Alan Lewis, Partner at Constantine Law
  • Rachel Suff, Senior Policy Adviser, CIPD

Chaired by Jill Miller, Senior Policy Adviser, CIPD
