I wrote that they should use performance appraisals to determine which employees are most valuable to the firm so that they can lay off the once that are incompetent. For the second one I wrote that they should have in place a solid set of grievance procedures to ensure that the disputes which arise from the reduction in the workforce are managed properly (most of the employees which are maintained will probably be concerned about the lack of job security and may engage in disputation). Also stated they should attempt to negotiate any disputes as it is both cost and time effective (if they arise).What strategies did you guys suggest for the downsizing thing? I gave them recruitment and Job Design, not sure if correct!

Probably wrong though, sort of had me thinking that one.What strategies did you guys suggest for the downsizing thing? I gave them recruitment and Job Design, not sure if correct!
