Responsible Restructures: Facing the Future Together

In this toolkit, Business in the Community (BITC) has three immediate and essential asks of businesses that are considering restructures and redundancies.

This Responsible Restructures: Facing the Future Together toolkit supports employers to balance the tough economic choices they need to make now, with business success and sustainability in the longer term.

RESPONSIBLE RESTRUCTURES: FACING THE FUTURE TOGETHER

With one in three businesses expecting to cut jobs in the third quarter of 2020, employers must take an inclusive approach and minimise the impact for the future. If the UK is to rise to current and future challenges, we believe it is essential for businesses to build back responsibly with diversity and inclusion at their core.

Call to action

In this toolkit, Business in the Community (BITC) has three immediate and essential asks of businesses that are considering restructures and redundancies:

  • Protect and support
  • Upskill and reskill
  • Involve and empower.

In addition to this toolkit, BITC is developing an advisory product, available to all members, to support businesses facing restructures or redundancies. More details of this advisory service will follow this guide.

About the toolkit

This toolkit includes:

  • detail about the calls to action listed above
  • the case for inclusivity
  • learning from previous recessions
  • how to safeguard the future
  • a list of organisations that can help.
