The company, on a global level, has come up with a concept called Delayering to cope with the problems that we have been plagued with after the 2005 Wall Street market crash. According to the top people, we’re not restructuring as that would be halting the efficiency of the productive line. Think of it instead, as condensing the structure and layer of reporting so that efficiency will be preserved, if not made better.
Delayering, restructuring, condensing, heck; they all mean the same thing thing: retrenchment.
And what my boss said to the lot of us in the creative department a while ago ringing is still ringing in my head:
If you’re doing your work, if your volume of work is in balance with your salary, and if you are at par with or supercedes your job description, then you have nothing to worry about. The least efficient, the least productive will be the one to go.
Okay, that's good to know.
But alas, if everybody is on an equally productive platform, then we have no choice but to use the second way - the last one in is the first one out."
Just when I'm finally contented with what I have, i might have to scrape dirt again.
Pardon my french. I'm upset.
