Dale Carnegie can help Alabama residents cope with mass layoffs, change

December 27, 2010

When it comes to layoffs, Alabama workers are seeing more mass claims at the end of 2010 – a bleak circumstance. The time for a new year’s resolution is now.

TheBirmingham Business Journal reported that the state recorded 26 mass layoff events in the month of November. That equates to at least 50 employees from any one company being let go at one time.

The number of mass layoffs are on the rise, too. In October, Alabama’s mass layoffs were at 20. In Nov. 2009, they were reported at 16 events.

It’s times like these when workers must cope with change. Unemployment is rising – up 11 percent at the end of the year. Dale Carnegie Training of Birmingham, Alabama has courses that address such concerns.

Employers and managers may want to consider enrolling themselves, or their employees in classes like The Dale Carnegie Course: Effective Communications & Human Relations/Skills for Success, which offers an 8-week course to address the challenges of a changing workplace. The next local session begins Jan. 27.

For those who prefer an online classroom environment, How to Communicate with Diplomacy and Tact, is a new online course beginning Jan. 5. Both address the challenges of coping with change in the workplace – and life. Leadership Training for Managers offers a whole new perspective for those pursuing the next level in their respective careers.
