Ensure a smooth transition for employees
Redundancy is a sensitive issue and effective handling of the notifying session is critical. Pre-planning discussions are a critical first step in the career transition process. A pre-planning session between notifying managers and Lee Hecht Harrison to review communication and logistics will ensure effective handling of the notification process.
Pre-planning will assist managers to:
- prepare for and structure the meeting
- effectively address key issues raised during the conversation
- anticipate possible reactions
- respond appropriately to the emotions and issues raised
- clearly communicate the next steps of the career transition process
Setting a positive tone and conveying the right amount of concern and support goes a long way for both the individual and the organisation.
