Restructure Management

Whether you are experiencing growth or facing an operational headcount reduction, we can help with restructure management.

However you are planning to restructure your business there are risks that require an understanding of employment law to mitigate – and that’s where our support becomes invaluable.

Abbot Associates helps you:

  • Plan the restructure of your business

  • Identify areas for growth or reduction

  • Manage the merger/acquisition due diligence

  • Recruit new employees at all levels

  • Negotiate settlement agreements for staff exiting the business


Depending on the scope of the project we can either work at an hourly rate or arrange a fee beforehand, allowing you to know exactly how much you need to budget.

Redundancies can be a necessary part of running a successful business; however, the process can pose a significant risk to you if you don't abide by legislation and follow best practice principles.

This is where we can help as we have the knowledge and the experience to manage your redundancy process from start to finish. We can help you to:

  • Identify where your organisation can make cost effective overhead savings

  • Plan the stages of the redundancy process

  • Plan and manage consultations with employees

  • Liaise with Unions and/or Employee Associations if required

  • Calculate termination payments

  • Provide letter templates

We understand the redundancy process from back to front and will ensure that your project is managed compliantly and handled with empathy and professionalism.
