WHAT YOU WILL GAIN BY ATTENDING
In these difficult times, terminating the position of an individual or a group of employees is an agonizing choice for any employer to make.
Of course downsizing is not only difficult for the employer, it obviously impacts the affected employees, and can also adversely influence morale in the entire organization.
Walter and Garth will lead the group in a discussion on the best ways we as employers can help minimize the negative business and emotional repercussions of downsizing.
As a group, we will focus on an array of ways to help mitigate the negative aspects of restructuring.
