Does your HR department know how to deal with sensitive issues professionally, compassionately, and responsibly? If not, maybe they need HR training!

Difficult times present communication challenges for many organizations and their HR departments. When a sensitive issue arises — whether it's a global concern such as financial downturns or layoffs, or a more personal matter involving a single employee — certain considerations must be given to how information is presented and responded to.

Employees often turn to their human resources department in times of change or difficulty. Without appropriate communication measures in place, HR staff could inadvertently create further stress for employees or damage an already eroding work environment. In times of true crisis, nothing kills morale faster than perceived inactivity on the part of management. That's why direct and honest communication is the key to maintaining a stable work environment during tough times.

If asked, are you confident your HR team can:

  • Identify the four elements of issues that make them personally sensitive?
  • Utilize best practices for addressing sensitive issues with groups or individuals?
  • Choose the most appropriate means for communicating certain types of issues?
  • Address crisis communications with an honest, upfront style?
  • Distinguish public conversations from those that must be held in private?

If you are hesitant about your team's capabilities, enroll in this power-packed program today. Make sure your HR department knows how to approach delicate situations with poise and propriety. With the information provided in this one-hour audio conference, you will learn how to enhance HR's role when communicating and dealing with sensitive issues in the workplace.

As an HR professional, you must be aware of the best ways to effectively relate sensitive topics to employees. This one-hour workshop can equip you with the strategies and techniques you need to anticipate and handle any difficult workplace conversation!
