Yes, but put people first! Communicate clearly and transparently about your situation. Make clear agreements that benefit all concerned, even though this doesn’t guarantee there’ll be no lay-offs.

None of us can predict the future. Nonetheless, it’s vital that you remain transparent and show compassion and understanding, as this helps create solidarity – a source of solace and comfort in these testing times. Act in the knowledge that your staff won’t shirk their responsibilities and will band together.
