As organisations now face the very real prospect of losing the support of the Job Retention Scheme, it is crucial you start to plan ahead. Whilst redundancies may seem like an obvious solution to saving costs, you should consider if taking such an action is the only option. There are other options available such as lay-off, allowing staff to work flexible hours, reducing contracted hours, putting a recruitment freeze in place etc.
