Training seminars for preparedness in staff restructuring and downsizing situations

The success of efforts to mobilize staff depends on the commitment of the executives and HR directors tasked with initiating departure processes for the employees who are open to change and managing, motivating and stabilizing the remaining staff. These executives and HR directors are the ones responsible for getting the company through the stormy change process to the other side. The ability to do so however requires that they be well prepared for the staff restructuring or downsizing situation. And our role is to get your executives, project managers and HR leaders prepared for these responsibilities. We conduct training seminars for your employees responsible for the process designed to enable them to effectively overcome resistance and persuasively ‘sell’ the change both internally and externally
