A Practical Guide to Redundancies
Wednesday 31st May , 09:30 – 12:30
Making redundancies, is a difficult and stressful process for everyone. Employers understandably worry about getting things wrong, which in turn drives a focus on process. Employees are often understandably anxious, distressed and upset.
In our workshop we cover the process, but spend time sharing ways to support employees, focussing on what employers can and should share as part of a redundancy process. And skills to have meaningful conversations with team members.
This course will include the following:
- Legal principles and what the employer needs to know
- Planning and considering alternatives
- Communicating bad news and managing emotions during consultation
- How to manage questions and challenges that arise during redundancy selection
We love a good natter and love to gather opinions from our delegates on our courses. Our style is to facilitate rather than to tell. To do this online we therefore like to have everyone on camera and the mics on when needed to be able to hear what everyone has to say. At the end of the day, its your course not ours!
In our experience, for a truly interactive workshop the numbers are best kept to below 12 and ideally between 8 and 10 delegates. This allows for everyone to feel like they have the opportunity to have a say and to enable the content to be worked through in the time allowed.
We like to bring a high level of interactivity to our sessions and include the use of discussions, exercises, quizzes, polls, break out rooms, whiteboards, and annotation. Just like our face-to-face sessions we want to ensure the activities are varied and deliver the content in the best possible way. The sessions will vary between group work, small break out sessions and individual work.
If you are looking for something other than an online workshop, then have a look at our on-demand management development training modules. These provide more in-depth learning on each topic.
We will provide you with a PDF of the workshop slides, copies of relevant handouts and any book recommendations during the session!
