How Leadership Can Rebuild Trust with Employees Amid Large Redundancies
Recent major global redundancies at tech giants such as Google, Microsoft, Meta, and Amazon have led to a sense of disillusionment even among “surviving” employees whose jobs were not affected. Simon Callow, head of international, senior partner, and region lead—Europe for RHR International, says that this has led to a clamor for psychological safety in the workplace and that leaders play a critical role in rebuilding trust with employees after large-scale layoffs. Open, transparent, and compassionate communication is one way to help restore faith in the organization and rebuild trust.
Simon spoke to Employer News in the UK about what leaders can do to reestablish trust, morale, and security.
