Change involves moving from one circumstance or situation to another. Since organizations involve many components and systems, the ability to effectively communicate any changes throughout the organization becomes a critical component of employee morale and commitment.
In this scenario, assume you are serving as a Human Resource Manager/Professional of a company within the KSA and announced that your organization must lay off 20% of total employees. Discuss how you would advise management about how best to communicate this message. Include the following areas: the specific process they should follow, the format/channels they should use, the components to include in the message.
Draft a short, one-paragraph message that you believe should be sent to the organization to announce these layoffs.
During the week, review and offer suggestions to your fellow students on how they can modify their message to make it more palatable to employees, offering suggested words and approaches that they may consider.
