Leading Through Downsizing: Layoff Notification & Survivor Communication Best Practices
Facing a reduction in workforce is definitely not something anyone wants to face, but these situations sometimes become an unfortunate reality. The way layoff notifications are handled will have a direct impact on the entire organization, including both the people who learn that their positions are being eliminated as well as the individuals who will be staying with your organization – referred to as layoff survivors – as the company moves forward.
If your organization is facing a layoff, it’s critical to be sure that the leadership team and supervisors who will be involved in notifying employees are properly trained (in advance) regarding best practices for what is sure to be a stressful and difficult time for everyone involved. Attend this informative webinar and learn how to properly structure notification conversations, as well as what to expect in terms of the impact that downsizing will have on layoff survivors so they’ll know what to expect and be able to communicate and lead effectively in this type of situation.
