Due to COVID-19 and the current recession, many organizations are in the unfortunate situation where downsizing and layoffs are required in order to sustain the business and survive.
Join this webinar to learn seven best practices for planning and communicating layoffs, all the while preserving your company’s employment brand and maintaining the dignity of your valuable employees.
