Planning for a firing: Death or otherwise…is it an easy transition?
Everyone is alive and well, no one has done anything wrong, no one is planning at the moment to retire and things are just trucking along or just being built…
This is exactly when you want to make the clear plans on how a firing would be handled, how a death would be handled and how someone retiring or quitting can be the easiest transition possible.
Creating the plans for the unexpected early on can make for smoother transitions when the unexpected strikes. Get it covered now, so it is not a heavy blow later.
On the same token, covering these things early on as others understand or agree to how things will happen when something has to happen, can avoid the anger, arguments and the issues that can arise from assumptions, confusion or lack of details.
…even if you don’t have to fire anyone.
It is that simple, planning for a firing, for someone to die, retire, quit or just leave before they do will make the experience that much easier to handle in the end.
Take some time looking up some of the worst case firings online or from those you know. Consider adding those considerations to your plans.
And see it as a living document. The more you hear about, the more that happens and the more you learn from other experiences… when added to your documentation and sent to your employees, the less problems you will have down the line.
