When an organization goes through a reduction in force, it is just as important to have a plan in place for working with those who will remain with the organization as it is for those who will be directly affected by job losses. This is just as true for layoffs triggered by a public health emergency such as the COVID-19 pandemic as it is for layoffs caused by more common factors, such as a merger or a decline in customer demand. A manager or HR professional working with the remaining employees must be able to understand and effectively lead through the complicated emotions these employees are experiencing. In this episode HR expert Jenni Stone shares best practices for addressing survivors guilt and effective workplace communication.
