Meaning & Definition

Bumping

Bumping is a practice used by many companies to reserve talent pool during downsizing, wherein, a senior level employee, whose position has been selected for elimination, is offered the option of accepting an alternative position of lesser seniority within the organisation. Bumping can be a useful tool for employers who wish to retain the skills and experience of an employee who would otherwise be downsized. A lot of employers, though, are reluctant to consider bumping because of its obvious injustice to the employee who is bumped.
