The Complete Manual for Layoffs
Ensure executive leadership and managers have the direction on best-practice tactics to effectively manage layoffs.
When the economy is negatively influenced by factors beyond any organization’s control, the impact can be felt almost immediately on the bottom line. This decline in revenue as a result of a weakening economy will force organizations to reconsider every dollar they spend.
- The remote work environment many organizations find themselves in adds a layer of complexity to the already sensitive process of laying off employees.
- Carrying out layoffs must be done while keeping personal contact as your first priority. That personal contact should be the basis for all subsequent communication with laid-off and retained staff, even after layoffs have occurred.
