Retrenchment can be an emotional and complicated problem to deal with. It can affect you, your loved ones and other people around you in many ways.
This is something that happens to other people, not me! Something you read about in the newspapers. This can’t be happening. After all the years I’ve put into the company. There must be some kind of mistake.
Then you begin to see that it’s real. YOU’VE BEEN RETRENCHED!
Shock sets in.
What am I going to do? How am I supposed to help support my family? How are we going to pay the bills? How am I going to find another job? How dare they do this to me? What right do they have? I’m going to get them for this! Will I be able to get a new job? Do I have what it takes to apply for one? Will anybody want me? What will my family think of me? And what about my friends? What will they think? Will they reject me because I’m unemployed? The questions just keep on coming.
Being retrenched creates serious worry, anxiety and confusion for you, but the worst thing you can do is sit around doing nothing and being a pest in other peoples’ lives. SNAP INTO ACTION and get working on finding a new job right away.
