When dealing with high-risk terminations, considerations have to be made for the safety of everyone involved. Eliminating one or more employees can be very emotional, not only for the people leaving but also for those remaining. Plant closings with layoffs or a reduction in force will affect the entire community. Additionally, stressors that come from a person’s home life can also directly impact the workplace.
Ways We Can Help
Reductions In Force
Behavior Pattern Recognition
Training For Workplace Violence Responses
High-risk terminations require due diligence and a detailed preparation plan before separating an employee. The Human Resources staff and supervisors should plan for all possible reactions and outcomes from the individual, other workers, and the community at large, so they are not caught off guard. There will always be the potential for emotions to run high and actions to become physical in the heat of the moment. However, all parties should maintain a high level of awareness that a threat can also initiate at a later time. Learn how to prepare supervisors and staff to recognize behavior patterns that can become dangerous and introduce emergency response procedures to mitigate the danger.
