  • 60 Minutes
  • Online Compliance Panel
A reduction in workforce (RIF) is definitely not a situation that any manager, business owner or HR professional wants to face, but the reality is that these circumstances do occur. HR professionals, managers and leaders who will be involved in the process of planning and implementing layoff notifications must be well-trained in advance. They must know how to properly and ethically communicate with affected workers and with those employees who will be staying with the company post-RIF (i.e., the layoff survivors).

Objectives of the Presentation:
  • Keys to effective leadership leading up to, during and following layoff notifications
  • Best practices for layoff notification conversations, including timing, content and delivery
  • Example 'best practice' notification conversations to use as a guide for scripting your situation
  • What to expect in terms of responses, questions and reactions from affected workers so you can draft sample responses ahead of time
  • Communicating with remaining employees in affected departments as well as other areas within the organization
  • Managerial considerations regarding layoff survivor emotions, morale, productivity and team structure
  • Leading effectively during what is sure to be a turbulent time in the organization
Why Should You Attend?

Taking steps to ensure that layoff notifications and post-notification communication is properly the best way to keep a difficult situation from being worse than it has to be for everyone involved, as well as to protect the brand and image of the organization as a whole.
