PINK SLIP –
IT professionals have been working for many years, toiling sweat all over for overseas work with a hope they get good remuneration. The MNCs too were happy with the cost factor and it was a win-win situation.
However this led to unemployment struggles in oversea pockets leading to lay off trends where weak resources are removed, lethargic resources shuffled with a hope they perform and subsequently all know that the day is not far when they will get sacked.
What happens to the individuals uncertain about their career?
- invest some fraction of your saving in a startup
- try to explore being cofounder
- acquire new skills
- if you have good market connects, reach out openly and get projects. each person is out here to survive.. (Survival for fittest)
- if you are declared a failure, prove you are not
- be ethical enough to not reach out to same clients as what is not yours, is not yours.. you will get more better clients.
- learn to self discipline self through strict excercise regime, focused technology education and work on make-belief closer to industry solution projects
- try to invest some fraction also in social work initiative and work for a cause.. life will again bring you back to square 1 one day if it is really destined to.. so why not contribute for a cause and leave some please impressions in lesser mortals struggling for day-to-day livelihood
- For ones who are in HR role, do not try to keep monitoring too much on resources as they are not machines and may be they will work for full hours and keep their mind at home and come .. so what next (Productivty will remain an issue), rather encourage sense of belonging model.
- What about ones.. who actually are just thriving on some management merits of being trust worthy etc : – god bless them as they are in good spots as of now, however sooner or later, pink slip secrets will unwind for self.. as finally an organization needs actual performing team… what is the use of excel sheets with great analytics if the person who is actually contributing to metrics is feeling insecure
- The ones who will get job benefits because of such disruptive changes should also not remain contended as sooner or later, the individual is again going to face similar situation
- Learn to live simple and do not hoard too many assets… This principle is followed by large investors when they fund startups and do not like liability driven companies. Look at recent huge loss making startups who thrive on numbers
PASSION FRAMEWORK is for ones who have courage to probe, innovate their life and scope their life for a cause. It can be set in any environment, all you need to do is Act on the scope and own, nurture the cause.
Cause could be ”seeking a job back again, being happy all over again, restarting life all over again, and smiling back all over again to understand your life is not ended.. you are making a new beginning.. enjoy and this time do not just again get into mundane job, rather also initiate a startup
