Layoff Notice

“You want me to do what?”

This might be the first thought in the notifying manager’s mind when they discover they must hold a layoff notice meeting with employees.  

Ensure they lead a successful outplacement notification discussion that: 

  • Treats employees with dignity and respect. 
  • Minimized trauma to the remaining workforce. 
  • Reduces the likelihood of litigation. 

World-class coaching. It's what we do.

Layoff notice meetings can be done right.

Behind every successful outplacement strategy is a focus on two key areas: exiting employees and remaining staff. This provides everyone with greater peace of mind and a clear path forward.

The right training and support can reduce the negative effect a layoff has on your culture and productivity.
