Manager Notification Training

Prepare your managers for the notification conversation

On the day of notification, you can expect a full range of emotions, not just from the affected employees, but also on the part of the managers who are conducting these meetings.  Most managers are uncomfortable and/or inexperienced with this assignment, even with coaching by Human Resources.  Often, it is more stressful for the notifying manager than the associate being notified.

LHH can help your managers prepare for and structure the meeting, effectively addressing key issues during the notification conversation, anticipating possible reactions, responding appropriately to the emotions and issues raised, and communicating the next steps.  By understanding how to conduct legally sound separations with skill and sensitivity, notifying managers become more comfortable with the process and achieve better outcomes.
