How To Properly Handle A Reduction-In-Workforce And Employee Layoffs
In times of economic contraction business executives and owners are required to make some very tough decisions to keep an organization operational. In some situations where cash flow is a concern, simply furloughing employees for a short time can help to “right the ship” so-to-speak. However, sometimes furloughs just aren’t enough…

When revenue has sharply decreased and the near-term forecast doesn’t appear favorable, it is necessary to take swift, appropriate action. And, that action often involves working with HR to execute sharp reductions in the workforce, which is often called a “RIF.”

In this informative audio conference, seasoned educator and HR Consultant, Natalie Ivey, MBA, SPHR, SHRM-SCP will walk you through the critical steps of preparing for and executing a reduction-in-force.

In attending this important training session, you will learn how to help senior leaders stabilize the business while also minimizing the risk of violating labor and employment laws.

Ms. Ivey will help you with strategies on how to effectively craft a communication plan, how to identify which employees will be subject to layoff, and how to collaborate with leaders after the RIF to ensure business continuity and security.

About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.

The live versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back at work immediately after the session ends!

And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous times and to share it with others in your office.
