Learn how to coach managers on having productive, constructive transitions with departing employees, keeping doors open for potential returns, reducing productivity drains, and supporting a healthy team culture. 

Unemployment remains low. Disengagement is on the rise. Employees - often your top performers - will seek other opportunities. How can leaders manage departures in ways that keep doors open for potential returns, protect remaining team members, and reduce productivity drains? As HR leaders, it often falls to us to step in to support healthy transitions. In this engaging workshop, Tina Schust Robinson, founder of WorkJoy, offers three practical steps to help managers say goodbye with grace.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn techniques for opening emotionally-intelligent dialogues with employees who give notice.
  • Evaluate potential to retain by considering four critical questions.
  • Co-create a win-win transition plan that supports the departing employee, the remaining team members, and the manager.
