This Is How the Termination Conversation Should Go

A layoff can rip an organization apart, stymie productivity, and put serious stress on those responsible for notifying affected workers. But there is a way to deliver the difficult message so that you minimize employee distress and maintain organizational integrity for those left behind to pick up the pieces.

Workplace communications expert Mary White explains how in this insightful webinar. She will equip you with the tools (and words!) to communicate and lead effectively during a layoff or reduction in force—with the goal of ensuring that your notifications don’t make a bad situation worse.

Learn the critical elements to effective and respectful termination conversations, and get examples of best practice notification language. White will go through every aspect of your communication—from timing, content, and delivery to what to expect in terms of responses, questions, and reactions. Plus, she’ll address “layoff survivors,” including how to handle their emotions, morale, productivity, and team structure.

Don’t make a tough time tougher. Learn communicate strategies and techniques to maintain your company’s reputation and the upward trajectory of your employees’ hard work.
