Why Your Agency Is Not Prepared for a Reduction in Force (RIF)

Apr 27, 2017

The President’s proposed budget has generated unprecedented concern among the Federal workforce due to proposed reductions that few agencies have experienced in recent years. Even if reductions that are enacted are moderated, they could lead to widespread Reductions in Force (RIF).

ICF’s Jeff Neal, author of the ChiefHRO.com blog, has been responsible for conducting RIFs accurately and in accordance with law and regulation, while addressing employee concerns for information and fairness.

In this webinar recording, Jeff shares his first–hand insights and examines:

  • Why federal agencies are not ready to tackle a RIF
  • The necessary, and often time-consuming, steps required to prepare for a RIF
  • Tips for successful RIF preparation
