Another 4:00 p.m. meeting yesterday. This time it was to hear the announcement that our administrative support resource had been deemed redundant and was being eliminated. In other words, our admin was losing her job.
The corporate-speak wasn’t quite as extreme as I’ve portrayed it, but it was close. Regardless of the terminology that was used, the silence afterwards probably wouldn’t have been quite so deafening if the announcement hadn’t been followed up with the explanation that “this is really nothing out of the ordinary, it’s part of our corporate culture, and it happens all the time.”
I’m sure that made everyone feel a lot better.
