than losing your beloved colleagues to a mass reduction in force. Since no two layoffs are the same, the true culture of a company can be seen in how they conduct their layoffs. Some take a non-human approach, while others go the extra mile to support ex-employees during this transition.
But what about the employees that are still there? Many struggle with the guilt of surviving the cut. Low engagement and quiet quitting may become the new norm.

This means putting transparency, equity, and trust at the heart of everything.
