Downsizing Notification Checklist for Managers

“You want me to do what?”

This might be the first thought in the notifying manager’s mind when you inform them one of their team members will be laid off. A layoff planning checklist will put them at ease.

Ensure they lead a successful notification discussion that treats employees with dignity and respect, minimizes trauma to your remaining workforce and reduces the likelihood of litigation. From when to hold the meeting to what not to say, this checklist covers key areas that will make the notification process easier on everyone involved. Ensure managers have the support they need during this difficult time. Download the Layoff Planning Checklist for Managers now.
