How to deal with the economic effects of a crisis
In the event of a crisis, the solution requires thinking and working together, taking into account all human aspects: managers, subordinates, customers, partners, suppliers.
In order to deal with this difficult situation, we would like to bring to your attention some thoughts and real-life examples based on Frederic Laloux's book, about how the "organizations of the future" deal with crisis situations like this.
We recommend these to everyone, but especially to CEOs and HR managers!
FAVI crisis:"Car orders fell due to the Gulf War. … There was only one obvious solution: to fire those employed on fixed-term contracts.”
Buurtzorg crisis:“In 2010…health insurance companies threaten to withhold payments of four million euros. … The horror of collapse threatened.”
AES crisis:“In the fall of 2001, after the terrorist attacks and the collapse of Enron, EAS stock began to plummet. … The most pressing question was: how many power plants should they sell and which ones…”
AES redundancies:"...almost every time we encountered an overstaffing. … It was only rarely necessary to ask people to leave.”
The "human" solutions to the above stories can be found in the details of the book below:
