 This question made me smile. It is always nice to have a manager who cares. I agree with Bucky, for one to share this news one must have a calm personality and be ready for questions that they may not be able to answer. The key will be to keep answers short and factual. For example, “You all know that the company didn’t get the last round of funding, and they’re analyzing next steps. I want you guys committed to your jobs, but there’s no harm in dusting off your resume, and doing some networking. I care about your careers, and I don’t want you to be surprised by anything”. I would also advise this manager to check in with HR to make sure they’re not in breach of contract.
