Throughout our entire alliance, we are mindful of the trust and responsibility we have to maintain and re-enforce our clients' all-important brand image. It is only natural for departed employees to view us as an extension of their former organization, and we take that reputational aspect very seriously. Because many firms do not experience broad reductions in force (RIF's) frequently, when they do need to restructure, they want a thoughtful solution tailored for their specific situation.
The best possible outcome is for affected workers to obtain a new job as quickly as possible. When a new job is obtained quickly, former employees tend to "let go" of any ill will that they may have against their past employer, and instead focus on their future. Employees want to feel cared for throughout their employment life-cycle and transitioning out is an important part of that process.
