The art of letting people go

These are tough times.

Nearly everywhere one looks, people are being let go. And often by the finance team or people with absolutely no experience in doing so.

There is of course a difference between letting people go due to their performance versus that of the company.

In the case of the latter, often one is asking people who have been very loyal to the company or even been great performers. In this event it requires great skill in letting them go. It is traumatic for them emotionally, socially and financially. And no one really is equipped to meet all these challenges.

Stepping into this is a company called the Five O’Clock club. A company that helps companies that need to lay off people. It also works with the people being laid off.

It is a great service and I sense a business opportunity for some astute HR practitioners.

This article here says it all.
