How not to fall under the reduction
As a rule, information about the forthcoming reduction comes to the labor collective long before the official decision of the management was made. This can be gossip and speculation of particularly inquisitive staff. Of course, you do not need to react to every such message. But if there are any economic prerequisites to this, then one should listen to gossip.
With a reduction in staff, the head rests on a law that clearly regulates people who are not threatened with a reduction. These include pregnant women, as well as mothers of minor children and children with disabilities. Also, the reduction does not threaten employees who are on sick leave.
The career destinies of all the others are in the hands of the head and the personnel department. As a rule, the criteria for making a decision on reduction are reduced to productivity, education, professional competence, and personal qualities.
First of all, those who do not bring the company a direct financial profit fall under the contractions, i.e. Office staff, whose functions can easily be redistributed. Unlike them, working specialties - drivers, cooks, builders, sellers, etc. often retain their jobs.
If there is a threat of reduction, you should think about becoming an expert, ready to retrain or take on additional workload. For example, the professional value of a lawyer is increased if he shows interest in personnel matters. The hotel administrator, who is ready to perform the driver's functions for the management after the work, will also look much more valuable than the employee, who for every convenient occasion is covered by the job description.
In order not to lose a workplace, one should not give up overtime. It is necessary to show leadership the willingness to sacrifice free time and hobbies for the sake of a common corporate goal.
A valuable employee is a healthy employee. However cynical it may sound, the workers who regularly take sick leave are not in the credit of picky managers.
It is necessary to be a truly irreplaceable specialist to leave the workplace on a quarterly basis due to illness.
Therefore, it is better to take care of your immunity: begin to temper, drink a vitamin complex and go in for sports. Well, in case of illness, if possible, it is better to volunteer to do the amount of work at home - management will certainly assess the responsibility of such a specialist.
Pleasure from work
Even the most unbiased at first glance, the leader ultimately evaluates the work team with a healthy share of subjectivity. After all, he is also a man. Therefore, the director is much easier to say goodbye to an employee who is not satisfied with his place, than with his colleague, who is grateful to the company for the open professional spaces.
Practically in every team there are specialists who now and then talk about new vacancies that they are offered, complain about low wages and uncomfortable conditions. It is much easier for the head to give up such an employee than from someone who likes his job and his work. This healthy corporate gratitude is worth a lot.
