Coronavirus has affected companies globally and the residual effect will be felt for years as companies aim to recover.

Laying off is the single most important and difficult task required of leaders.

1.Eliminate all other options first
2.Be transparent and communicate

3.Don’t let the layoffs come as a surprise
4.Have a plan in place before you talk to the employees
5.Go one step further
6.Provide letters of recommendations
7.Give them time

8.Help them find another job

9.Create a severance package 

10.Provide a resume and cover letter builder - Kickresume
