HR Restructuring and Outplacement Nowadays – Best Practices

Nowadays, organizations are required to revise their operating models and structures. Yet, numerous groups face the challenge of preparing and carrying out the restructuring of their processes on various scales. On Thursday, Jan. 28, the AmCham HR Committee organized a meeting entitled HR Restructuring and Outplacement Nowadays – Best Practices. Our speakers were Ms. Agnieszka Jagiełka, Member of the Board, and Mr. Piotr Kuron, Delivery Director, LHH Polska, talent development and a transition company, part of Adecco. We have discussed how to carry out wise restructuring based on companies' best practices that have undergone similar processes in recent months. The speakers have mentioned decreased staff engagement and reduced leadership trust as the most common risks in this process. Setting the project team and assigning the roles and responsibilities seem to be a must to start the process. At the end of the journey, individual coaching consultations and providing people with tools to find a job (helping with LinkedIn profile, offering networking opportunities like job fairs, etc.) could make the process smoother and quicker. As was stressed during the meeting, the development of Artificial Intelligence in Poland is based (among others) on recruiting worldwide leading talents to Poland. Attracting such talent can be done by simplifying the immigration requirements for non-European talents or encouraging Poles to return to Poland by providing them attractive tax incentives.
