Let’s get real, despite the vaccine rolling out, for the mass unemployment will not get hired back, due to massive reskilling for an automated future and future work being accelerated during the next normal. For jobs that are being automated and replaced or eliminated, it will not come back.
For those who are forced to leave, whether it is due to right sizing or whatever, one thing for sure, those are not the core of the employee company needed. The reason is simple, for those who are really needed, they continue to work from home, due to the fact, they continue to deliver value and be value added despite the tough economic conditions.
Those who are needed are the one who continue to value added, in another word, they are productive, or in employer definition, they are the want help company make money, revenue generator or profit center. If you are not in that category and hard to quantify your productivity, you are better focused on acquiring new strategic competency that is needed.
