Reshaping the Work Force: Ensuring Employees can Contribute

  • D. R. Tyler

When an organization begins an intensive self-examination of its operations, a policy of employment continuity can experience the acid test. To accommodate rapid growth in some parts of the organization and declining activity in others, managers often want to retain the flexibility of layoffs. Employees, on the other hand, experience some nervousness when the source of their livelihood is in doubt. Mild jitters can, and often do, lead to active resistance unless managers can convince employees that their jobs are not in jeopardy. The bottom line is that organizations need a committed and productive work force to compete.
