How To Deal With Redundancy
A few ways to bounce back
Each week we hear about companies shutting down or making people redundant. That’s on top of the many who have already been redundant. For some this is the first time they have had to deal with redundancy. However, it doesn’t make it any easier if this the second or even third time. It’s a harrowing and an extremely worrying time.
Jane Ferré joins me and shares her tips and advice as a career and development coach, but also someone who was made redundant twice in one year. The first time was through choice by taking voluntary redundancy, but the second was completely out of the blue.
Jane has 20+ years experience in HR and Development with international businesses and she really knows what it’s like to be at the sharp end of a redundancy.
We cover the ‘grieving process’ – because being made redundant is a loss and we go through the steps as the grieving process. Which always starts with denial. Not being able to accept what is happening. We will go through the four steps of the grieving process. How quickly it takes us depends on us as individuals, our experience, support, and of we can accept where we are and then start the actions of bouncing back.
One of the key things you can do when you are made aware of an impeding redundancy is to sort out your finances. Jane covers this is the very first step so it gives opportunity to figure out how much time you have to find another role. Also to see if you can extend the time through cutting back on certains costs and expenses.
