Shifting the Focus From Profit to People

Internationally acclaimed for its pragmatic redundancy program, The People Shift is a movement empowering leaders to view and overcome the toughest management functions through a people-focused lens.

Leading With Humanity During a Crisis

COVID-19 created an economic crisis where millions of livelihoods—nearly affecting half of the global workforce—were threatened. Many were compelled to undergo an organisation restructure, leaving C-Suite and HR executives scrambling for resources to develop a redundancy program and transition plan in a hurry.

The People Shift was created not only to support leaders and decision-makers during this trying time but also to help them discover the value of treating employees with dignity and respect when handling any crisis.

During a crisis, lead with humanity.
You can achieve any desired business outcome
by simply putting your people first."
