Today I wanted to be an Ostrich, I wanted to stick my head in the sand and just have the world pass me by for a few hours....
I found out today that our company is downsizing. We are letting several of our employees go. I found out that my position is changing....or should I say doubling. I will now wear two hats. I will do my current job and also now do another position. My concern is that both of the positions are key positions that take time and detail. Right now what I do takes an actual 40 hour week and they want me to do an additional position which is a 40 hour week position.
My manager presented the new employee flow chart to me today and the changes looked great on paper. I wanted to know how things were going to work in a real sense...not just on a piece of paper. They are going to have 3 office people do what 7 people are currently doing. None of us could legitimately figure out how we were going to do the work of 7 people. We all agreed that we would buy into the new plan of the G.M, but also let him know that if the work loads were too much he would be the first to know.
This new plan unfold mid January, hopefully things go ok...if not, there is always my blog to let out the frustration.
