This alignment will sometimes call for a reduction in force. Even the greatest employee or team, taxes the company if their skill set is not needed or can’t be afforded. Whether it is because of a lack of work or lack of funds, reductions in force are a reality in business. While this can be a trying time for many companies who have had to conduct lay offs, sometimes there is the option to conduct a voluntary reduction in force. According to a SHRM policy template, a voluntary reduction in force is:
