What is a Reduction in Force (RIF)?

Thousands of people lose their jobs every day in America. There are plenty of ways that you can lose your job. Over the years, hundreds of thousands of workers have experienced losing a job in some shape, form, or fashion. One particular way that an employee can lose his/her job is from a reduction in force, or RIF. A reduction in force may come off as similar to or even synonymous with what many of you may know as a layoff, but it is actually quite different in certain aspects.

A reduction in force occurs when an employee is let go from a company due to reasons such as a change in workforce planning initiatives, budget reforms, a change in overall business strategy, and most times, certain business conditions that require the elimination of an entire department or certain positions within an organization. On the other hand, a layoff usually occurs when a company is restructuring, downsizing, or going out of business and is usually temporary, giving the employee the hope of the possibility of being rehired in the future.

Although strikingly similar and the employee loses his/her job in both cases, the main difference between a RIF and a layoff is that a reduction in force is more times than often permanent, and can ultimately have a devastating impact on an employee’s morale and overall well-being. A layoff is typically temporary in nature. There are layoffs that can actually lead to an employee being out of a certain job at a certain company permanently. However, this is almost always the case in the event of a reduction in force.

When a reduction in force is set in stone, it is typically wise to look towards a career services company that offers reduction in force services. Reduction in force (RIF) services are delivered to assist organizations both small and large during their time of right-sizing to help them in supporting and providing assistance to their employees during their time of transition from being employed to searching for a new role.

For an average employee, knowing that your days are numbered in a certain role due to organizational reasons outside of your control can be hard to process, extremely difficult, and highly stressful.
