Tough economic times present a variety of HR challenges and prompt companies to make corporate cutbacks, put cost-effective measures in place, and streamline operations while at the same time retaining key talent. With increasing pressure to contain costs and a high percentage of operating expenditures arising from compensation and benefits, one of the first places CFOs look to make cuts is people-related expenses. Reducing headcount may seem like an obvious way to save on costs; however, cutting key talent could seriously affect an organization’s ability to deliver on business goals.

A smart way to implement strategic corporate cutbacks is to enact rightsizing. This involves downsizing a company’s workforce to the point where the number of employees remaining is deemed to be the right size for the organization’s current condition.
