I was reading an article the other day about how to tell if you are going to be made redundant. This is a field on which I am something of an authority so here are my golden tips
Firstly, not having anything to do is a real danger signal. This is a difficult situation to get out of as to find meaningful employment within a company involves pointing out that you have nothing to do, which only serves to remind your colleagues how redundant you already are.
Secondly, be wary when your boss invites you to a surprise ‘catch-up’ meeting. I have always left these P45 in hand!
Thirdly, trust your instincts. The one thing which working for several companies which have gone down the toilet has left me with is a finely tuned bullshit detector. If something sounds bollocks, it probably is bollocks, no matter what other people might tell you.If you found this post useful, why not buy me a coffee!
