In recent weeks we’ve seen layoffs and hiring freezes hit the headlines and social media networks en-mass for the first time in several years. Randstad RiseSmart CEO and Co-founder, Dan Davenport wrote an insightful article on the matter just last week, explaining that what we are seeing is the sub-1,500 employee unicorns and late series funded start-ups and scale-ups cutting employees, and often doing so in a poor fashion. 

But, it doesn’t have to be like this. With expert right-sizing and outplacement services, you can let people go in a kind and considerate way, and set them up for future success.
