Are you on the layoff list?

2008 is a year that many professionals look forward to, as the new labor contract law is about to be implemented.

Although the new law provides more protection for the judicial workplace, it also brings a huge “layoffs”.

  CCTV fired 1,800 non-staff personnel, accounting for 20% of the total number of people in Taiwan; Bank of China Sichuan Branch and China Southern Airlines Hainan Company also reported rumors of large-scale signing of “labor workers” with temporary workers; Huawei spent 1 billion to clean upPortal, 7,000 employees resigned first; LG Electronics lays off 11% of Chinese employees; Wal-Mart lays off 110 people in Shanghai’s global procurement center . In addition to the impact of the new labor law, and in accordance with annual practice, many companies will implement layoff policies.

Xiangyang career career planning experts pointed out: Since entering November, many companies’ “layoff storm” has begun.

Some employees have not been resigned, but have already been placed on the “layoff blacklist”.

Therefore, you should make preparations in advance, and do not fall into the “trend of layoffs” at the end of the year.

The workplace is like a battlefield.

Knowing the motivation of layoffs can prevent problems before they occur.

  Motivation for layoffs in companies “Redundancy” often becomes the most convenient way for companies to save costs. They often make corresponding personnel adjustments in conjunction with the next year’s strategic planning. Hong Xiangyang, chief career planner of Shanghai Xiangyang Career Enterprise Management Consulting Co., Ltd., believes thatThere are generally three reasons for layoffs: ① economic layoffs.

Generally, due to market factors or poor management of the enterprise, serious operating conditions have occurred, profitability has declined, and the enterprise is facing a crisis of survival and development. In order to reduce operating costs, enterprises are forced to take layoffs to ease economic pressure.

When the current or potential labor costs are gradually too high, companies will also take layoffs from the perspective of maximizing benefits.

In this way, employees’ salaries and year-end awards are all saved, which is often the direct cause of layoffs at the end of the company.

  ② Structural layoffs.

Layoffs caused by reorganization of internal organizations due to changes in the business direction of the company.

At this time, local structural layoffs often occur, and the tailors are often joint personnel in certain departments.

Of course, in order to improve efficiency and inject new vitality, layoffs are also commonly used by companies.

In some cases, layoffs can even reach 50%.

  ③ Optimized layoffs.

In order to maintain the quality of human resources, it is the act of firing employees who cannot meet the development needs of the enterprise.

To ensure that the tissue is well-metabolized.

This process is ongoing.

  When we face the crisis of layoffs, we must first figure out which kind of motivation of the company’s layoffs, and formulate a response plan based on the reasons for the layoffs.

If it is economic layoffs, to analyze, is it the current downturn in the industry?

If it is structural layoffs, then you must rationally analyze your strengths and weaknesses, and look for job-hopping or other development directions; if it is the third case, you need to replace yourself and develop a professional career plan for yourself.

  Xiangyang career career planning experts analyzed that, in addition to the constraints of objective factors, for every workplace in the workplace, the first thing to face the crisis of being tailored is from himself.

So after understanding the objective factors, do we need to understand that some kind of people are easy to be laid off?

Combined with your own performance, you can understand how likely you are to be included in the “blacklist” of layoffs.

  The characteristics of being laid off Whatever the reason for being laid off, it is normal for a company to stay competitive to cut staff.

Hong Xiangyang believes that most of the following employees are the most likely targets for year-end layoffs.


If the poor performance cannot create profits for the company, then the company definitely hopes to replace it with a replacement.


Low loyalty If a person can’t be loyal to the enterprise or the profession of the army in which he belongs, it will lead to low work efficiency and poor performance.

In the eyes of the company, such employees are not even easy to use for me.


Poor interpersonal relationships If you can’t maintain better interpersonal relationships in your business, then even if you have good performance, it’s usually hard to escape.


The work is highly replaceable and pioneering management and streamlined organizations are the slogans of many companies.As a result, the business benefits, and the most likely to pay is the replenishment of employees.

  If you are in line with any of the above specific types, you need to be extra careful, it is best to prepare yourself in advance.

If you happen to encounter objective factors such as the expiry of a contract or the end of a project, you really need to start preparing for the next job.

Xiangyang professional career planning experts reminded: Once you find yourself on the verge of layoffs, you should immediately find a strategy to deal with it, rather than wait for it.

In today’s fierce competition, only by determining your own professional goals and continuously strengthening your strength in accordance with this goal, can you be able to withstand the layoff storm.

  Obviously, whether you have been “blacklisted” this time or have been tailored, at least we should take this opportunity to think about it-what should I do if I have been tailored?

Is this professional life what I need?

How can we ensure our competitive advantage in the workplace in the long run?

In the next article on layoffs, Xiangyang Hong, the chief career planner of Xiangyang’s career, will further analyze the coping methods of layoffs for the majority of workplace friends.

Only in this way can we be insulated from all kinds of “layoff storms” and put ourselves in an invincible position in the workplace.
