Building Culture, Loyalty and Employee Productivity in Any Economy

Research by the American Academy of Management shows

  • Laying off 0.5% of your workforce leads to a 25% voluntary turnover the following year.
  • Laying off 10% translates to as much as 50% churn.

Even in a downturn economy, you have more choices than you may realize…

  • There are alternatives to layoffs and affordable ways to retain your valued staff.
  • Key strategies will let you improve: Profitability, Culture and Consumer brand

You’ll take away proven ideas on:

  • how to capitalize on opportunities afforded in uncertain times to grow capacity and output
  • innovative ways to retain staff when it looks like layoffs are the only option, including how to take advantage of Work Share opportunities where Service Canada will top up the salaries of valued employees working reduced time
  • strategies for reducing anxiety and office gossip and improving both morale and productivity
  • the best ways to handle cuts, restructuring or downsizing if they become necessary
  • what to look for in outplacement for employees who are cut
  • best practices in dealing with uncertainty and “survivor guilt” in remaining employees
  • ways to manage brand reputation going  forward
