Planning and Support for Announcement Day and the  Consultation Process

Taking the time to properly plan for announcements, consultations and town halls can have a significant positive impact on the quality of the communication delivered to individuals, teams and organisations at this time.

Proper planning and care maximises the likelihood that people feel will feel that they are being treated with respect, care and dignity which can in turn impact their overall wellbeing and how they navigate changes as a result of a restructure.

Our experienced career coaches and change specialists are well versed in providing meaningful and impactful support on announcement day and throughout the consultation process.

The Retained: Reengaging Employees After Restructure and Post Restructure Support

Working and operating during a global pandemic is presenting significant challenges for individuals and organisations alike. Many organisations have found themselves reviewing the ways in which they can stay competitive (or at least afloat) at this time and finding unique and novel ways in which to adapt and thrive (or at least survive).

The financial impact of Covid-19 has meant that for some organisations to survive, restructures have become necessary. This is a difficult undertaking for many leaders and, understandably, we often find that the primary focus and effort is placed on the first two stages of the restructure process:

  • Pre-restructure (i.e. the planning) and

  • During restructure (i.e. the actual conversations).

Less thought is given to the third stage of restructure; re-engaging employees after restructure.

However, reengaging employees after restructure is an incredibly important component of the restructure process and contributes positively to individual and team wellbeing and overall workplace culture.

Taking the time to regain the trust of your employees and winning both their hearts and minds may help circumnavigate some of the organisational health effects and risks associated with restructure; increases in absenteeism, presenteeism and unintended turnover along with decreases in commitment, confidence, productivity, engagement, reputation and attractiveness as an “employer of choice”.

So how do you reengage employees after restructure? By taking the time to regain their trust and win their hearts and minds. How can you start today? Here are five evidence-based steps outlined.

The Allies

Restructuring a business is a significant undertaking for any organisation. Everyone is affected, including clients, customers and other third party stakeholders who have developed relationships with your people. Whilst not often considered, they too may feel a sense of loss and uncertainty wondering who they need to talk to , who they should approach and where to go if they need help.

Taking the time to consider your communication strategy and messaging to your allies will allow you provide continuity of service and ensure these valuable relationships are maintained and reinforced during this time of change and uncertainty. We will guide you to develop a specific strategy to strengthen your relationship with your allies at this time and minimise ambiguity and uncertainty for them during the change.
