Building Organizational Resilience: The HR Leaders’ Guide to Maintaining Engagement After a RIF or Layoff

Just as things have started getting “back to normal” post-COVID, the rug continues to be pulled out from under HR leaders. A looming recession, banking crisis, global conflicts, and other economic factors have created a volatile job market and made engaging and retaining top talent all the more difficult. 

As a result, many organizations have had to make the tough decision to initiate layoffs or a reduction in force (RIF), with 62% of CHROs reporting they’ve made a cut to their workforce in the past year, according to a survey by SoftBank Vision Fund

These HR teams are put in the dreaded position of executing departures—while simultaneously trying to engage and retain the employees who remain.

This guide is designed to help you, the strategic HR leader, navigate the ups and downs of supporting remaining employees after a layoff or RIF, and take steps to ensure that the company and employees emerge stronger and more supported than ever.

  • Navigating the fallout of a layoff or RIF
