How can you communicate COVID-19-related layoffs without compromising the trustworthiness of your company and the morale of your employees?

Downsizing is a defining moment for any leadership team. It shows the true colours of your organisation’s culture and values, and the stakes are high when balancing progression with regression. When navigating the unknown, layoffs and cost-cutting may be necessary for your survival, but it might not be perceived this way by your organisation.

In this webinar, we will share our perspectives on how to plan and communicate layoffs in a challenging situation without compromising on the morale of your employees. We believe the keywords here are compassion, rational reasoning and transparency. We will elaborate on how to maintain creditability, avoid feelings of alienation within your organisation and increase understanding amongst employees.
