Preparing for Change and Separation

The success of a staff restructuring project is often dependant on the way in which it is communicated. Our principle: to carry out interviews with affected employees on a fair basis for all parties involved. 

This means that HR business partners, managers and union representatives, who are responsible for conducting these special interviews, are well-prepared. The B&H Group offers training so that these groups are qualified to deal with such situations.

The training is based on the premise of a fair change and separation culture. This should be manifested in the behaviour and attitude of the company executive at such meetings.

In our experience, this is the only way to limit personal hardship and all direct and indirect costs (restructuring budgets, HR time required, ongoing court cases, damage to the company’s image and internal friction etc.). Ultimately, corporate restructuring and cost reduction depend on a good separation culture.
