Dismissal Meeting
Within any company, managers must be reminded that the focus of a layoff is not on the actual individual being released, but rather on the position itself. The layoff decision is made based on the needs of the company and the position. If the individual is not fulfilling the position or if the position is no longer necessary, the company must make the decision to let the person go. With this perspective, managers can prevent as many negative emotions as possible and it will additionally affect the communication between the manager and employee being laid off. When the employee is reminded of the true purpose of the decision, they will accept the decision more easily than if he or she feels personally attacked over the situation.
