I just heard the news today that a lot of my co-workers are being kicked-out one by one. As much as I hate to admit that all COMPANIES are experiencing the GLOBAL CRISIS, but I really HATE LAYOFFS!!!
Of course, layoffs are normal with this present crisis, but informing them “YOU’RE FIRED” then and there is a little bit unprofessional and inhuman. Forgive me for the terms I’m using but with the things I’m hearing, I don’t believe being silent is a necessity.
So, what are the BAD things About LAYOFF’S?
Here are my thoughts about these –
- It disrespect people’s achievements – I always believe that there are a lot of people who are working their guts out just to have a living. As much as we want to, people are hurt when all their efforts fall prey to “recession”.
- It fails to give hope – can you imagine a person just hearing a bad news about a person close to him? it’s momentarily shocking and then grieving. Let’s face it, people are people and when calamity strikes, it breaks our hearts and shatters our future.
- It undoubtedly projects a BAD IMAGE – especially when you kick off people just as you kick out your “yaya”. Period.
But as much as I hate layoffs, the global economic crisis has and will continue to have its toils… 😦 And I’m not sure how to do about it…Hhhmmm…It makes me think, what can I do to make this mallady to STOP? (as I call it…)
Just sharing what I think is about true to me…I’m not sure about yours as well. SHARE NAMAN!
