When the time comes to make the hard decision and remove an individual from the organization or the team, we recognize this transition has effects on other individuals in the organization. To avoid assumptions being made, rumors from spreading, or unnecessary concerns about job security, it's important for leaders to acknowledge the transition. While we may not be able to explain all of the details, we can ensure our team's morale is not harmed and communicate as transparently as possible. The Society for Human Resource Management provides examples in the article below for communicating with employees after a colleague departs.
