2 Re-organization and Layoff No matter the title or method, when a company fires, restructures, or downsizes, it is hard on the employees affected and the ones left behind. Often these situations cannot be avoided and management and companies have to make the difficult decisions for what they believe to be in the best interest of the organization. Although these decisions are sometimes necessary, can they be handled in a more efficient manner to make a bad situation easier to swallow? Issues & Problems The underlying problem of the article is they manner in which layoffs and downsizing are approached. Another issue that is discussed by the author is if layoffs or downsizing are even necessary in every situation. Downsizing creates uncertainty with the remaining employees and could result in a loss of productivity. I agree that some managers do not handle layoffs in the best manner, but I also know several who do. The way a person is let go, does not necessarily negate the reaction that he/she will have. People are wild cards and can be emotional and unpredictable. They will react as they choose to, regardless of the manner of delivery. Who wants to lose income, and have to start all over searching for a job? I know I certainly do not!

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
