Keeping Your Job During A Recession
I struggle to write about keeping your job during a recession as it almost suggests that during the recession there are special strategies to keep your job.
I personally believe excellent work ethics helps you keep your job during the economic downturn. Those very strategies will also help you move up the corporate ladder in good times.
Regardless of the economic climate, one should always practice good work ethics. If I have to choose, these will the few things that will help in keeping your job during a recession.
1. Be Nice
2. Be A Competitive Advantage
3. Work Hard
4. Do More Talk Less
5. Increase Revenue, Cut Costs
What unit do you belong to? Is yours a profit center? If it is, figure out ways to help get more money. If yours is a cost center, think of ways to cut costs. It will all contribute to the company’s bottom line and that will help in keeping your job.
During a recession, be thankful and happy that you have a job. In that context, you will naturally do the right thing by doing more and talking less. Genuinely contribute to the company’s vision and direction and be sincerely nice to people. That way you increase your chances of keeping your job during recession.
