|Signs Your Job is in
You are not in the loop anymore
Are you become the last to know things at the
office? Taking you out of the loop might be first
step of preparing for life without you.
Your input is not asked for anymore
Your input isn't necessary if you aren't going to
be around much longer.
Your work load is getting lighter
Is your workload lighter recently while your
colleagues seem to be taking on more? If projects
and tasks are being passed on to others it may be
a sign the organization is making sure your work
will be handled properly once you are gone.
Times are tough at your company
Is the executive management having lots of
closed-door meetings and are the HR managers
putting in lots of long days? Is your company
facing financial losses? Is there a hiring
freeze? When a company is in trouble personnel
cuts are a popular cost cutting move and unless
your job function is essential you might be one
of the ones to go.
You are suddenly being micro-managed
If you have always had a great deal of autonomy
in the past and are now being scrutinized at
every turn, there might be a serious reason
behind this new form of management. new scrutiny
in the workplace can sometimes mean less
confidence in your abilities.
You have received one or more negative reviews
If you have received a performance review that is
negative, you need to take it to heart and make
some changes. If you have multiple bad reviews
under your belt and still haven't learned from
them, your days probably are numbered.
The company is "reorganizing"
Mergers, acquisitions and restructuring can all
be good for business, but bad for employees. Is
your company merging with another that has
employees who do the same job as you?
