A reduction in workforce is definitely not a situation that any manager, business owner, or HR professional wants to have to deal with, but sometimes these situations become an unfortunate reality. Advance training for everyone who will be involved in the notification process is critical. That is exactly what your team will learn in MTI's informative program, Leading Through Downsizing:  Best Practices for Layoff Notification and Survivor Communication.

The way layoff notifications are handled will have a direct impact on the entire organization, including both the people who are directly affected (meaning their positions have been eliminated) and the individuals who will be staying with your organization – the layoff survivors – as the company moves forward. Handling the notification and post-notification process appropriately is an important key to protecting the organization’s brand and image, as well as maintaining good relationships with employees who will continue working with the company after a reduction in force (RIF). If your organization is facing a layoff, the leadership team, supervisors and HR professionals who will be involved in notifying employees must be properly trained regarding best practices for what is sure to be a stressful and difficult time for everyone involved.

Key Topics

Key topics covered include:

  • Keys to effective leadership leading up to, during and following layoff notifications
  • Critical elements of effective, respectful layoff notification conversations, including timing, content and delivery
  • Example “best practice” notification conversation
  • What to expect in terms of responses, questions and reactions from affected workers
  • Managerial considerations regarding layoff survivor emotions, morale, productivity and team structure
  • Moving forward following this time of turbulence

Who Should Attend

  • HR Professionals
  • Managers & Supervisors
  • Executives

Managing employee morale is very different during times of economic difficulty than during times of prosperity. When times are tough, one thing is certain. Employees are scared. They are worried about their futures - both with the organization and on a personal level. Efforts to manage morale during down times must start with the recognizing that what employees need during times of uncertainty can't be addressed by traditional approaches to improving morale. 

Course Objectives

MTI's Managing Employee Morale in a Difficult Economy seminar focuses on redefining morale management for a down economy and provides managers with practical tips and suggestions they can adopt to take steps toward alleviating the fear and stress that employees are facing on a daily basis. This class is designed for managers, business owners, and human resources professionals who want to make sure their organization's are taking proactive steps toward effectively managing employee morale in light of the current economic environment. 

The way an organization handles this issue during difficult times can have a direct impact on the company's success - both in the near term and well into the future, even after economic recovery occurs. People look to the organization's leaders for guidance, so it's essential that management is sending the right message to the rest of the organization. If managers are in a panic mode, morale will suffer.

If the company's leaders are focused on open communication and maximizing efficiency the rest of the organization can follow suit. It's important during difficult times to look inside one's own organization for talent and expertise that makes it possible to streamline processes, help employees improve their skills, and keep things moving forward.

Who Should Attend

  • Supervisors
  • Managers
  • Team leaders
  • Executives
  • Business owners

Presentation and public speaking skills are critical success factors in the modern workplace. Every professional job at some time involves sharing information in some capacity. The principles of effective presentations apply whether you’re speaking to a small group or a large audience, whether you’re speaking to people inside or outside of your organization and whether you’re trying to persuade or are simply conveying facts.

Learning Objectives

Whether your role involves communicating with employees, co-workers, customers, or other stakeholders, it’s a fact that your ability to create - and deliver - strong presentations can have a direct and significant impact on your credibility and - ultimately - your professional success in your current position and beyond.  

What you say matters - but how you say things matters just as much, if not more. You can be an expert in your topic, but you won’t be successful if you can’t convey your meaning. How you deliver information determines whether or not people will listen and understand what you have to say. Improving presentation skills takes practice, but practice only works if you know what principles to follow.

Want to become a more effective sales professional as well as a trusted resource for your customers and potential clients? There was a time when the “hard close” was an acceptable sales method. Today’s consumers and business owners rebel against that method.

You should be able to “sell” your company to potential hires and communicate change to existing employees in a positive manner.
