Workforce Planning: Unintended Risks and Consequences

Event date: 16 Jul 2020

As organisations review their future employee needs this often involves a range of options intended to minimise impacts on employees. However, employers need to think carefully about the medium and long term effects of some of these options on the impact of the business.

- Voluntary redundancy and exit incentives
- Career breaks
- Fixed term contracts
- Redeployment
- Re - hiring
- Furlough extensions

We highlight some of the risks and unintended consequences of the changes you may be planning to enable you to make informed decisions before going live with your proposals.
