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
  • Business Owners
  • Organizational Development Professionals

Selecting and retaining the right employees is critical to organizational success. Skills aren’t the only important factor to consider. Skills matter, but so does job fit. And job fit involves more than finding someone who will ‘get along’ with their coworkers or manager. Job fit involves cognitive, behavioral, and interest elements – and it’s difficult (impossible, really) to get those just from one-to-one interactions or reviewing application paperwork.  

Making Selection Simple, Human and Smart

Great organizations know success begins with hiring the right people. Fortunately, identifying the right people doesn’t have to be difficult. Not if you use the right tools in the selection process. The key is to take the guesswork out of making hiring decisions through incorporating adaptive testing into your selection process. This involves expanding the focus of selection from impressions (resume, interview, background) to data – and not just any data, but the right data on which to base hiring decisions.  

After all, using key metrics to make a sound business decision is what having a strategic HR mindset is all about. It only makes sense to incorporate key, job-specific analytics that are valid indicators of fit into the selection process to measure the quality of each hire and – beyond that – to use that information to effectively onboard and coach new hires and gain unique insights into team dynamics while laying the groundwork for employee engagement and retention.

Learning Objectives

Attend this informative session and learn how to do just that. Key topics covered include:

  • Exploring job fit – what are the components?
  • Critical risks associated with poor hiring decisions
  • Dollars and cents - identifying the cost a bad hire or a mediocre hire
  • Management perceptions of problems with a traditional, impression-based selection process
  • Validating in the selection process: Exploring validated predictors of job success
  • Incorporating a data-based solution into your hiring process with PXT SelectTM
  • Key advantages of adaptive assessments for selection and beyond
  • Standard performance models versus customized
  • Behavioral, cognitive, and interest-based components of “fit”
  • Reviewing and making sense of sample data
  • Personalized interview questions to explore dimensions of fit
  • Unique insights comparing applicants to each other and across multiple positions
  • Beyond selection – setting the stage for employee engagement and career management with solid data
