New Service from Cherington HR - Redundancy Toolkit

According to a recent poll of 2,000 organisations undertaken by the CIPD and Adecco Group, one in three employers is planning to make job cuts by the end of September as the government winds down its coronavirus support.

This is a fifty per cent increase in the number of companies expecting to make redundancies compared to the previous quarter, and is likely to be due to the phasing out of the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS) as the amount paid to employers for furloughed staff is reduced. Sadly, I have had to assist a number of clients manage such situations over the last few months and realised that there was a wider need for such support. So I have developed a Redundancy Toolkit providing all the information and resources you need to run a redundancy exercise – whether that involves the loss of just one post or the need to reduce your headcount further.

Supporting Staff - Working from Home or Returning to the Office?

A recent poll by People Management suggested that a fifth of employers are planning on reopening workplaces from September and a third will expect employees to come back into work on a certain number of days per week unless shielding. The shift of emphasis from the government on going back to work if possible has clearly had an impact, but many employers, including some Civil Service departments have said that they are not planning on asking staff to return to work until the end of 2020 at the earliest. And some have said that they are considering making working from home permanent.

So what are the implications?
