Guide to Redundancy with Care and Compassion

How to ensure that you implement an effective redundancy process that puts your employees wellbeing at the heart of the process.


A redundancy process is often based on the legal requirements that a business needs to adhere to. But these can make the experience impersonal, soulless and restrict mental support for those affected.

It’s not surprising that research shows that 90% of those made redundant are angry towards their employer.

This best practice guide looks at how businesses can implement a redundancy process which puts an employee’s wellbeing at the heart of the process and ensure that they are handled with empathy.


This guide will look at:

  • Communication – the importance of clear, transparent messaging from senior management to individual road mapping for employees
  • Support for HR and line managers
  • Help for those being made redundant
  • Help for those who remain in the business.
