Is the dreaded word Redundancy being whispered through the office gossip vine?
Long before the actual day that redundancy occurs there are usually clear signals that something is not as it should be. You may have heard rumours. You may have seen people coming to meetings for no clearly stated reason. It may just be that your instincts are working well and you sense something is wrong. On the other hand, HR may have told you to expect a reorganisation of the business…and doesn’t that set the cat amongst the pigeons!! Once people are unsettled and feeling insecure you start to see the real character of those you are working with, and yourself too.
Whatever has made you feel concerned that redundancies may be coming now is the time to act.
