If you have to deliver bad news to your employees, such as layoffs or benefit reductions, remember to cover three areas in your speech or memo, as follows.
- Deliver the bad news up front. Don’t make it the last thing you talk about.
- Offer hope for the future. Talk about how you’ve taken the action to secure jobs and security going forward.
- Finish with a call to action. Remind your employees that it takes commitment by everyone to succeed going forward.
