Handling Layoffs

While retrenchment may be an easy way to boost the bottom line, why do we regard this approach as good leadership? Have we lost our humanity - our perspective?

It's not just the fact that retrenchment is widespread that is disturbing - so too are the careless ways it is handled.

If we want to work differently we have to take care we don't become drawn into questionable work practices.

We need also to be able to read the climate, so we can respond wisely, instead of becoming fearful and losing sight of the possibilities that remain.

Frequently retrenchment is a lazy option - sometimes it is the only option, but if we have to take this course of action let us do so with the greatest humanity possible, because that person is someone's father, brother, child.
