From Mourning to Dancing

We’re cutting your job.” A decade ago those words sent me reeling when the company I worked for eliminated my position. At the time, I felt shattered, partly because my identity was so intertwined with my role as editor. Recently I felt a similar sadness when I heard that my freelance job was ending. But this time I didn’t feel rocked at my foundation, because over the years I have seen God’s faithfulness and how He can turn my mourning to When we face loss, we shouldn’t run from the sadness, but neither do we want to become bitter or hardened. When we think about God’s faithfulness over the years, we know that He’s willing and able to turn our grief to dancing once again—to give us sufficient grace in this life and full joy in heaven. —Amy Boucher Pye

    Losing one’s job can often be a blessing but the company you work for needs to handle the redundancy with care and respect.

      I agree, and that is why I believe in exit interviews they are important because they offer a deeper look at your workplace culture, day-to-day processes, management solutions, and employee morale.

        I agree but I was really talking about how the company handles the entire process from the announcement about the likelihood of redundancies and how it helps those affected.
