If I have 100 staff at the beginning of the financial year and is ordered to reduce the workforce by 12%, ie I should have 88 on average at the end of the year. How would I calculate the monthly percentage so the reduction of staff can be rolled out gradually. I don't want to cut 12 in the first month then do nothing for the rest of the year but that's not logical for the remaining staff.

If I cut 1 each month ie staff level in the first month is 99, 2nd month 98 etc, 12th month 88. but the average staff is not 88 ie (99+98+97+...88)/12 is 93.50.

If you could help it would be great. thanks.
