Measure people’s perception of temporary layoffs

During times of economic uncertainty, temporary layoffs cannot always be avoided. They may increase the workload for those at work and decrease the readiness of getting back to work. With the CCEA Perception Measurement service, you can continuously be on the pulse and get reliable data on how people feel during the temporary cost adjustment period.

The exceptional times caused by the coronavirus have forced many organizations to cut their costs and lay people off temporarily. Once these extreme conditions return to (a new) normal, the winners are those who have best sustained their people’s working ability and motivation.

“After the first four weeks, we can see that the laid-off people start feeling concerned about their situation. Let’s plan how we could support them and making them feel that they are part of the community despite the temporary layoff.” 

With the CCEA Perception Measurement service, you know in real-time, how do people in different parts of the organization, units, and teams perceive the temporary layoffs and other adjustments. Through the visibility of the results, you can quickly and distinctively identify the arising problems and tackle them proactively, even during the same day. This has a positive impact on people’s wellbeing both at and off work and the productivity of the people continuing to work. Enabled by the service, you can indirectly contribute to the continuation of business and operations as generally as possible.

At CCEA, we are experts in measuring people’s perception and know how to set up a reliable measurement based on behavioral sciences. After the kick-off, we can have the measurement service up and running within a week.

  • Perception measurement service for three months with reliable change indicators  
  • Summaries of measurement findings with recommended actions
  • Messages to employees communicating the decided actions/ways forward 

“Based on the measurement, the support actions towards the people that have been laid off seem to improve the perception of one’s situation.”
