Employer Hiring & Recruitment Questions

When laying off personnel, who should be cut first?





If an construction employer cannot support its current staff, and must lay off personnel, experts recommend removing those staff who are the lowest performers in each department. Begin by removing 10% of the lowest performers across the board at every level of the organization.

It is also advisable to remove personnel making high incomes if there are suitable replacements for less money - regardless of tenure. Often veteran employees earn substantially more than their less-tenured counterparts and are found to be not more productive.

During economic slow downs, construction employers can usually hire better talent for less money than they are currently paying their existing personnel. Layoffs can be a good time for construction employers to re-evaluate their existing personnel and replace existing weak links with stronger outside hires, for less pay.
