1st May 2017.
This witty advisory notice always cracks me up, maybe because my aim is always on target?
Anyway today was a dark day, with an office door shut for a brief chat, followed by one of four colleagues that had just been advised their position was no longer required.
Having been through this gut-wrenching experience many times myself, it puts an uneasy jolt through everyone’s bones and I don’t wish it upon anybody. The uncertainty, the questions, the way in which lives are turned upside down. Hopefully the last of the cuts, but that’s little comfort to some of us who’ve heard it all before across our careers.
