Termination with Humanity

Summary

The most critical lesson to be learned in communicating and carrying out corrective action or termination is how it is conducted. Creating a process that is well planned, comprehensive, and focuses on treating the employee with respect will have a tremendous impact on the employee’s perception and response to the action. A termination can be an emotional time for both management and employees, but studies show that it is possible for both the employer and the terminated employee to benefit. In this workshop, learn how to effectively plan for and communicate a termination decision, how to leave the employee with his/her dignity intact, and how to communicate to and manage the reaction of remaining employees.
