So yesterday I’m working as usual, and I receive an auto-email response to one of my inquiries to a co-worker…
[Person] is no longer with [Company]. For assistance, please contact [Different Person].
And I’m thinking how short and impersonal that is. And it made me really sad. Like alot of businesses, the company I work for has also been struggling and have been laying-off employees ever since covid lockdowns started.
And to announce that they are gone via a short and concise auto-email just seems really rude to me. I wish we had a chance to celebrate them and all their contributions they’ve made to the job. Isn’t that the least we can do?
Anyhow, this has been going-on since March. And I’m not getting used to it. Instead, I feel more and more de-moralized about being here. Everyday is just another reminder that I mean nothing to this company that has so much control over my livelihood. It’s not a good feeling.
My apologies for this post being such a bummer. Are any of you dealing with a similar situation at work? How are you doing?
