Protect your precious headcount because it is the right thing to do.

April 6th, 2023

Or just be lazy like everyone else and lay off a bunch of people that need jobs.


Today’s post is by Ronald D. Southard, CEO at SafeSourcing Inc

I was reding a post on LinkedIn today By Cate Chapman, Editor at LinkedIn News titled Job cuts pose thorny questions. According to the post, Employers are weighing whether to change their approach to layoffs in a tight labor market, especially when so many of the cuts involve remote workers, The Wall Street Journal notes. Among the issues: Is it more humane to deliver the news in person? Does it make sense to trim workers slowly even if it prolongs their anxiety? How much severance is enough? These and other questions aside, experts say transparency is key so that workers are not unduly surprised by any decision to let people go.

As you know, I am not an advocate for or a fan of massive layoffs that are not necessary when there are other ways to reduce costs. Certainly, the current work from home, remote work and return to the office make cuts more challenging. Wouldn’t it be better to look at other ways to reduce costs in the current fiscal year that can match the savings of hair cut after haircut with your defense being everyone else is doing it. At SafeSourcing we can show you how in under thirty minutes and then execute and deliver in the current accounting period.
