Please join us for a discussion of the employment law essentials for planning and executing a global restructuring or reduction in force. The discussion will be divided into two back-to-back sessions, with attendees welcome to join one or both sessions.

The first hour of the session will give an overview of the key factors when planning a restructuring. In the second hour, we will apply those principles to a case study drawing on our practical experience of managing projects end-to-end.

With particular focus on Europe, the Middle-East and Africa, you will obtain tools to tackle key challenges, including:

  • Planning for success

              o  Building the business reasoning for the restructuring

              o  Managing the restructuring stakeholders – central vs local

              o  Timing – what to expect, and tips to speed up the process

  • Communication pitfalls
  • Setting out the budget – costs and risks
  • “Red flags” – issues that will impact your execution strategy
  • Resolving practical issues in real life situations

This webinar is intended for HR managers, in-house counsels and change managers with international responsibilities that include EMEA countries. It will benefit those involved in both the planning and the execution of the employment law aspects of a restructuring, balancing local and global issues.
