Today, my company made site closing/consolidation announcements that directly implies career impacts to thousands of individuals. Dozens of associates I work with are in that group. A site closing/consolidation is not notification of termination; however, managment has made clear that many will lose their jobs. Individual assignments or layoff notifications will follow in the coming days/weeks/months.
Question: How can I effectively communicate along the lines of the Career Crisis Communication podcast to the many friends and associates I have across the enterprise? People who I work with day-to-day are fairly easy, I can just talk to them. Those who I haven't worked with recently or who are at more remote locations are more difficult.
Also, I may be impacted. My site closing was announed a few weeks ago, and more site announcements for a different part of the organization are expected next calendar year for another set of folks I have worked with.
