One of the most important things for a business is to remain flexible and this means reacting to changes and circumstances. Ideally, a business would have to react to growing and developing in a positive manner, but we understand that many businesses face difficulties and problems that may require them to make changes that they would prefer not to make. However, if a business comes to the conclusion that they need to reduce their workforce or restructure their business, it is best to face up to the circumstances and act in the most appropriate manner.
