276: Brainfood Live On Air – Ep244 – Offboarding – How to Avoid PR Disaster

February 10th, 2024



We have seem the company wide Zoom call, the recorded 1-2-1 videos, the mass email and even the classic no notice account lock out – it seems that whatever method an employer takes, there is always a risk of PR disaster when making lay offs.


Is this a matter of training, tooling or values? How can we create the right sort of process which humanises this hardest of moments within a business?


You will learn


– Psychology of lay offs

– Impact of transparency and forewarning

– Most important components for an effective and humane exit

– Balance between need to protect the organisation vs need to take care of former colleagues

– Role of the manager, CEO, colleagues and People team

– Post lay off support


We’re going to examine this topic from all angles, with the help of Leslie Kivit, CPO (ex-Xapo Bank), Sophie Power, People & Talent Advisor (TA Leader, TTC), Bharath C, Recruiter (Meta), Jean-Marie Caillaud, Founder (WorkMeTender) & Arielle Kilroy, CEO (Dado).
