Bleak as it sounds, preparing for cost-cutting measures and a retrenchment letter is the smart thing to do. With the ongoing Covid-19 crisis and the economic aftershocks only just being felt now, we could all be looking at a period of austerity for a long time to come. Crazy as it sound, getting retrenched doesn’t have to be a horrible experience IF you take charge of the situation.
While it is awful and stressful, preparing for the fallout is the most powerful thing you can do. And if the chop doesn’t happen, then you’ve just taken pro-active steps to empower your life.
