The real meaning of “Right Sizing.”
Come on tell it like they know it is “They don’t have a job!!”
I have spoken with many HR folks in the past and I find it hard to believe that they don’t figure out the need to “right size” in order to avoid the need to lay people off.
Right sizing is about getting the right people in the right job at the right time and at the right quality and cost and in the right numbers!!!
There is little point in doing it after the event! It meant that you did not get it right.
More importantly you wasted peoples lives, a great deal of money in hiring, training, educating and doing all that stuff that develops peoples’ morale only to tell them. Sorry no job!!
That is when YOU got it WRONG! And THEY LOST THEIR JOB!!!
Be honest, stop using “weaselly words”
Look yourself in the mirror and tell yourself that you screwed up and that valuable asset you were telling them they were now feels worthless.
