No time to waste at RMIT

Staff who applied for voluntary redundancy were getting the news yesterday

Managers are being told to advise them, “in a 15-minute virtual meeting.”

HR certainly wants the meetings to go well, telling managers what they probably had already thought out for themselves; “we recognise this can be a challenging time as leaders; and we want to empower you to guide these conversations with sensitivity and care and to help manage staff expectations. “

It can’t be much fun either for people who get 15 minutes to digest life-changing news.
