Pre - Planning - The ultimate goal when notifying an employee of their job loss is to treat the employee with dignity, respect and honesty. Think about it as if you were receiving the notification, not delivering it – how would you like to be treated? Successful termination meetings are carefully considered and prepared for beforehand. Planning and preparing for the termination meeting will make the difference in a successful or unsuccessful implementation. When terminations are handled correctly, employees quietly exit and the organization moves forward. When they’re handled incorrectly, organizations run the risk of a costly legal battle which can have a major impact on the brand, productivity and community. Venor Career Management can work with you on such things as: messaging, logistics, personal risks, retrieval of corporate property, legal risks, required manager training and ultimately, support on the day of the notification.
Manager Training - Terminating an employee is probably one of the most difficult tasks a manager will do in his/her career. In some cases the decision has been made to terminate the employee(s) and the manager is in charge of delivering the bad news. Venor Career Management can support and train managers leading up to the notification, giving guidance and confidence to deliver the news effectively and in a legally safe way.
On-Site Support - Venor Career Management can assist you with the quiet departure of the employee following notification. We will also ensure the employee understands the message, is prepared to discuss with family members and friends, understands the impact of their reaction to the news, and realizes that they do have support through their career transition program as they move forward. Venor Career Management can also provide support to the remaining employees, such as attending staff debriefing and meeting with individuals to provide emotional support and build communication strategies to address impacted employees, families, and the general public.
