Once you have made your redundancy selection decision you need to communicate the outcome to all employees placed at risk of redundancy.

Each of our criteria question packages includes a scorecard to record selection criteria scores and weighting for your whole redundancy pool. In addition, we have also included an addition template to recording and communicating weighted scores to each individual employee. Thereby saving you time creating such material and to ensure every single employee receives the same communication message.

Each selection criteria question is based on a key skill, behaviour or expertise we think might be important to you when deciding who stays and who in your pool of selection needs to be made redundant.
