Care about your employees, even when you have to let them go

Downsizing and restructuring a business are major challenges, but also necessary when markets change, and business conditions change with them. This can place a great burden on your employees, those leaving as well as those remaining.

Advisers with extensive experience and expertise

We can handle the restructuring of your business and help in planning and counselling. We advise on termination of individual work contracts and offer tailored counselling for groups or individuals seeking new opportunities elsewhere.

Our aim throughout the restructuring or downsizing will be to help those who are leaving and pursuing new careers. In addition, we offer help in development of skills and new expertise. In our counselling we focus on skills, expertise, and ambitions for a new career, and facilitate a smooth transition to a new and suitable position. Meanwhile, we also support and motivate those who remain, so they feel secure in their positions and apply their expertise in the best possible way.

A tailored process


Custom made

No two restructuring processes are the same. We will adapt to the unique needs and circumstances of your organization, and create a program especially suited to your needs.



Our first step will always be a meeting to start the process and get to know both you and the realities you face. Through interviews with key employees, we will identify the critical factors of success necessary to reach your objectives.



Our advisers are experts in organizational development, project management, recruitment, Human Resources, and coaching. They are also experienced in finding satisfying solutions by way of counselling under challenging circumstances.
