Organizations face challenges on multiple fronts from continuing economic fallout and the possibility of reductions in force (RIFs) is a growing reality as businesses exhaust other options such internal mobility programs and redeployment initiatives.

    • key steps for planning, communicating and managing a RIF
    • preparing managers to deliver the news and handle emotions around layoffs
    • best practices for managing ‘day-of’ notification events, including virtual notifications
