Thankful for Work
We can all agree that it's been a year of change on the work front for many. While it seems that the job losses may be tapering off in some industries, others continue to see cuts. Labor Day is a holiday set aside for the American worker, but those out of work may not feel like celebrating.
And those who are dealing with workplace rumors of layoffs? Try not to pay attention to (or spread) workplace gossip about who's being let go or what changes might be happening. Keep doing your job, it will remind your supervisor why you are so valuable! If you're a manager, remind your employees they are appreciated. Either way, you can have gratitude for the job you do have now, for as long as you continue to have it.
If you're really concerned this holiday weekend, perhaps it's a good time to update that resume or do a little "casual networking" at the neighborhood BBQ. Who knows? This Labor Day could turn out to be worker-friendly after all!
