Abstract

This paper examines the downsizing strategies and employee selection processes that are associated with loss or retention of key employees in downsizing organisations. Following on from previous research that shows that organisational performance is associated with loss or retention of key workers and managers, this study concludes that strategies affecting employee loss or retention include delayering, voluntary and involuntary redundancy, and the closure of specific plant sites.
