Board of directors, implement
T: Has Ms Anderson decided whether to retrain or lay off ?
G: She made it to the board of director yesterday. They are making a decision.
T: Fortunately for her, she is not the decision maker.
G: I’ll say. She’ll be here soon to give me their decision.
T: Then we can help implemented.
G: Yes, if the board decides to retrain the current employees, we can help them organize the training program.
T: And if they decide to hire new employees we can help me recruit skilled workers
G: And then help them train the new worker for those specific jobs.
T: Either way, we have a full play it.
Place price tag on, morale
A: Well Mr. Green, the board voted to retrain. The loyalty factor was the important one
G: The workers’ loyalty to you.
A: And our loyalty to them.
G: It was a tough decision. There will be cost and time consideration in either case
A: But we could never replace loss loyalty.
G: I Agree. You’ve spent lots of time and money in your employees.
A: We can’t place a price tag on loyalty.
G: I’m sure company morale will be high now.
A: I hope so. Changes are always the problem though.
G: No one likes change. But ultimately, it’ll work out for the best.
Pros and cons, option, on side, off side
A: So what’s the next step, where do we go from here?
G: let’s start by looking at the training options.
G: It shouldn’t surprise you that we have a couple of options.
A: Both options with pros and cons.
G: Everything has its advantage and disadvantages
A: And nothing is ever simple.
G: Basically, you can either train your workers on side or off side.
A: Well, without knowing the pros and cons, my first action is to train on side.
G: Let me pull some information together for next meeting, then you can make a form decision.
