The author reflects on how the real estate business in Great Britain can address the impact of mass layoffs in the midst of an economic downturn. She cites the lack of transparency as the primary factor that hinders the industry to properly assess the effects of the recession and formulate initiatives to help the affected employees. To address these problems, she suggests the submission the full number of their redundancies to the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and provide ways to help unemployed surveyors.
