Reorganisation and restructuring

Reorganisation and restructuring

To meet new challenges, it is sometimes necessary to reorganise the structure of your business. Whether you are thinking about re-designating job roles, relocating the company, downsizing, or closing a department, HR Advise Me can help.

Working closely with our legal team, Loch Employment Law, we can provide expert HR and legal support during a restructuring, protecting your business from the legal risks inherent in reassigning and dismissing staff.

We can also provide guidance and solutions to any issues arising from your new business structure and provide advice on the employment law aspects involved.

“Pam and her team are always on hand to expertly advise us on any employment law issues we have. The speed of their service levels combined with high quality advice always exceeds our expectations.” Operations Director, Professional Services

How HR Advise Me can help

HR Advise Me can assist with the following services:

  • Identifying areas in need of reorganisation
  • Designing the new structure of your business
  • Identifying critical posts and writing new job descriptions
  • Communication planning and supporting documentation for staff
  • Handling consultations and meetings
  • Legal advice on the risks of implementing a new structure and if a claim should be brought against the organisation
  • Mock interviews or coaching for those who have been made redundant, helping to ensure a smooth transition

Dismissal and redundancy

If employees are unfortunately dismissed, remaining workers may feel unhappy about the loss of their colleagues, or otherwise feel insecure about their own jobs. HR Advise Me can work with you to ensure clear and effective communication during a potentially stressful time, helping you to answer questions from your staff, to handle difficult conversations with sensitivity and retain your valued staff.

We can also offer outplacement services for those facing redundancy, working with them to help secure new employment. By allowing HR Advise Me to focus on those leaving the business, remaining employees can also benefit from the availability and support of management, critical to preserving employee confidence and their commitment to your organisation.
