Avoiding Layoff Mistakes

Do HR execs ever regret the decisions they make during layoffs? Interviews with more than two dozen North American managers showed that many do, indeed, believe they, or their companies, made mistakes, whether choosing to dismiss or keep the wrong employees, or laying off too many or too few workers. The MIT Sloan Management Review recently published a paper outlining the survey results and offering advice for avoiding layoff errors. I wrote about the issue for SHRM Online.
