Many companies are currently downsizing and laying off a massive number of employees. However, here are three ways to avoid potentially being laid off.
- Showcase your value to your company. Identify the top priorities and those that bring the company revenue and focus on them. Always make sure to complete your tasks on time. Furthermore, pay attention to the quality of work you produce. Be innovative, and don’t hesitate to pitch your ideas. Finally, when additional work is needed, take the initiative to complete it, proving that you are a good team player.
- Upgrade your skills and make yourself indispensable to clients. Continuously developing your skills will help improve your job performance. Moreover, learning more about the details of your position and the tools you use will position you as a subject matter expert where everyone at the company can seek you if they have questions. Additionally, the more valuable you are to your clients, your job will be more secure.
- Be positive and embrace change. Adapting to change is a natural part of working for a good company. Accept constructive feedback and use it to improve yourself. In addition, try to identify areas where you can bring value to the new company structure and promote your accomplishments to showcase that. Finally, maintain a good mindset and be confident.
