Conducting Compassionate Layoffs During A Crisis: Best Practices In The Age Of Zoom

We are all making some tough decisions right now on many fronts. To protect the business and ensure its viability, layoffs may be necessary. But, this situation is anything but normal. Layoffs will need to be communicated virtually - which is unavoidably impersonal. The job market is frozen for an unknown period of time - a terrifying prospect for the affected employees. And, the shape of the recovery is uncertain. If it's V-shaped, you may want/need to reemploy an unusual number of people.One more thing: Glassdoor was in its infancy during the last crisis. Today, with 60 million unique visits a month, it carries a great deal of weight. For all of these reasons, the stakes are high for conducting layoffs well.With the right amount of focus and some buy-in from the top, costly mistakes can easily be avoided. Tune in to this webinar and we'll make sure you are prepared.
