Why it matters

After a layoff, your team’s morale can suffer greatly, impacting engagement and productivity at a time when it’s harder than ever to ask for help. When employees' needs for communication and support aren't met, it hurts your company's retention and bottom line.

  • Those who stay after a layoff experience a 41% decline in job satisfaction, a 36% decline in organizational commitment, and a 20% decline in job performance. This impact is outsized for your manager population.

  • Downsizing a workforce by 1% leads to a 31% increase in voluntary turnover the next year, driven mostly by the exit of high-potential employees who still have options in a tight job market.

  • A blow to employee trust means people seek less support from internal resources.
