Redundancies & Restructures

A redundancy or restructuring process is one of the more challenging tasks managers may be involved in. Managing the sensitive people issues that stem from such a process, as well as the legal complexities (not to mention their own emotions!), can make these exercises daunting.

This practical course will equip managers with the skills and confidence that they need to face the task head on.
