Redundancy Notice...

Recommended Posts

I've been thinking about retraining as something else lately but it seems there's no industry safe, if the greater economy can screw you out of a decent wage and career by fair means or foul it will. There's absolutely no place safe anymore. 

 

Aye I hear you, used to think about retraining a fair bit but came to the conclusion I'd need to do it out of love for something rather than purely to improve job prospects, for reasons as specified.  I've already had one career purely based on pragmatism.  Still might mind you; it's never too late.  If I could just stop procrastinating...

 

I reckon the GF should pool together and write a sitcom or the like.

That is so cold - don't think I could do it.

 

I got commended by management for providing the best training of our team on one of the occasions, bizarrely, but then they didn't see the passages of internet porn stories I randomly inserted into various procedure documents.

Been laid off twice, and both times was asked to arrange and perform training modules for my replacements overseas, after getting the news.

 

Had to laugh at how brazen that is.

 

Good luck to those under the threat. This is not to be glib as I know all about the pressure it can put you under, and that in many instances it's solely a negative, but sometimes you do look back glad it happened and better off, once the dust settles and you get sorted again.

Haha, similat sort of thing happened to me

I've been laid off twice and asked to provide training.

Obviously, at the time it's pretty devastating but it's interesting how the power between employer/employee shifts especially if you're a member of a union and aware of all your rights which i'd reccomend to everyone

Seems as though my boss has been laid off but nobody has heard from him. Apparently that's how it rolls with managers, you get taken for a conversation Mafia style and are never seen again. The company is making a profit too - let the good times roll. Really do hate this shit, it's no way to live.

 

my old boss was "poorly" then disappeared.He defo wasn't poorly either. He was a huge cunt so no great loss.

And now I'm redundant. I've got the equivalent of about a years salary tax free ( 22k ish) so I'm ok. 

Feel bad for some colleagues. Some managers on better salaries than me but less service means less money but probably bigger bills

I know I've put this on here before but I've had some 2 year. Lost my dad, my dog, my job, mums had a major heart operation and the mrs nephew. To add to being woken up to find I'd lost my job (news was on tv before we were told due to stock market rules) mrs found out her sisters cancer had returned (bladder cancer which is what killed my dad)

Yeah 4 weeks off, get my head straight.

It's ironic, my dad lost his mum in 91, was made redundant. He went slowly downhill after that with the ale. I'm pissed but tonight but luckily I cant drink for 2 days on a trot

At least you've got a decent payout and you can get your head straight and even sit this shit out a while if needed

 

All the best

If it helps ted, I love you, mate (did it help?)

 

It's beyond shit year for you and your family but you've done brilliantly to power through it all. Four weeks will let some of the dust settle probably more around the job rather than the other stuff. Loss does build up though mate and there's only so much we can carry around with us because it starts to warp our outlook on life. When you're ready get yourself some support both from family and friends and a few professionals if you feel you need it.

 

Happy to chat if needed - just a button away.

Thanks mate I'm ok. I'm not my dad he was far smarter than me, but went through more emotional trauma (he lost his dad at 8 and his brother drowned when he was 10)

Does feel like a release really, I'd had issues at work but last week we put that straight. I'd let a few things slide at work but obviously after last few months it's not surprising. 

My boss noticed how unmotivated I was which given the circumstances isnt unusual
