Layoff Alternatives Pledge Consulting & Certification

In the sea of layoffs and instability, are you looking to quickly differentiate yourself and improve your Employer Image as well as Employee Retention and Talent Attraction?

>> Taking the Layoff Alternatives Pledge may be the right choice for you.

Based on a popular article on LinkedIn by our Founder and CEO (link to article), we designed the Layoff Alternatives Pledge for leaders who are looking to do the right thing and commit to a transparent, pragmatic, ethical and economically justified approach to dealing with financial difficulties at their company.

  • Layoff Alternatives Pledge is a commitment to a specific decision-making process, not to an outcome.
  • Layoff Alternatives Pledge will become part of the company policy, ideally also published on the company website, approved and executed by the CEO and Board of Directors (if present) in order to be Certifiable

Layoff Alternatives Pledge entails commitment to the following decision-making process:

Each time there is an event or a situation that necessitates a cost reduction, that would normally be achieved via a headcount reductions (layoff, RIF), relevant decision-makers (CEO/ExCo/Board) would ask themselves One Question:
Is the situation Temporary or Permanent?
  • If Permanent, then layoffs are likely the right choice, often combined with restructuring or M&A activities
  • If Temporary, then layoffs are likely to be the wrong choice, a counterproductive and value-, image- and culture- destroying measure, and the company commits to selecting one or more of the following four alternatives:
  1. Time and Pay Reduction for all
  2. Time and Pay Reductions volunteered by staff.
  3. Pay Reduction for all, compensated by introducing an Employee Profit-Sharing Plan (such as VOSA).
  4. Pay Reduction for all, compensated by introducing an Employee Stock Option/Ownership participation plan (ESOP).

*May also be known as the #NoLayoffs Pledge based on a #NoLayoffs hashtag popularized by VOSA.
