"Unfortunately it's not usually the right ones that leave"

Exactly this. Companies offer voluntary redundancy and the smart/valuable/close to retirement staff are first to sign up because they know they can go somewhere else (or be hired back for double th emoney in some cases)

One company I worked for attempted to stop this happening and was informed in no uncertain terms that voluntary redundancies meant just that (can't refuse any until you hit your numbers and can't "encourage" certain individuals to go)
