Downsizing and Rightsizing

Rightsizing is an ongoing process. The maladjusted and non performing bottom 10% of the employees should be removed on a regular basis , a number of Indian companies like the Infosys follow this practice.

Also downsizing is required at the time company is going through decreased profitability or recession has hit the economy. When the question is of survival at that time tough decisions have to be made.

Some times temporary layoffs and reduced pay can do the trick.At such times it is important for the company to do communication properly with employees and also motivate the employees to perform for companies survival.
