As the healthcare landscape transforms, organizations face reengineering initiatives, restructurings, redundancies and downsizings, according to an article on the Modern Medicine Network website.
During a downsizing, leaders should consider the impact dramatic change has on the people involved. Steps for helping staff during times of change include:
• Developing a change management plan that includes transparent communications, detailed redeployment or separation plans, and action plans for multi-location efforts
• Supporting exiting employees by being clear about timeframes and expectations, while using a caring and considerate tone. Make sure those affected know what’s available to them in terms of outplacement and career support.
