It is always good to know ahead of time whether your services are no longer needed.
Listed below are eleven signs that could indicate that you are on your way out of the company.
Just because one of these signs applies to you doesn't necessarily mean that you will be terminated. So don't panic.
1. Excluded from Meetings
If you feel that you are being left out of important meetings that you would normally attend, then that could be a sign that you are not needed anymore.
2. Access Level Reduced
Your access to information within the company has been reduced. It becomes hard for you to get to data for no obvious reason.
3. Reduced Responsibilities
Your responsibilities and tasks are significantly reduced. The majority of your work has been given to someone else and you are left with minimal duties.
4. Reduced Power
Suddenly you lose control over many issues related to your scope of work. Nobody listens to you anymore and you are unable to take decisions as usual.
Your employers decide suddenly that you need a vacation! That means giving us time and space to find a replacement.
6. The Magnificent Assistant
The company hires an assistant to you with similar qualifications even though they are not needed. It is only a short time before he/she learns everything and throws you out of the window.
7. The New Boss
The company assigns someone to manage you and monitor your work. It is not because they want to see if you are eligible for a bonus, but because you are terrible at what you do (or at least in their minds).
Your opinion suddenly doesn't matter and nobody is interested in what you have to say. Your coworkers start to take you lightly and even try to avoid you. That is a good indication that you are not wanted anymore.
9. Mistakes, No Problem
Your errors are lightly taken. You commit a mistake and your manager barely comments on it. You arrive late to work and nobody even asks you where you have been. This is your manager's way of telling you that it doesn't matter anymore.
10. Out of the Loop
You stop receiving announcements. You get to know things by chance or through your friends at work.
11. Formal Communication
If you notice that all communication between you and your superiors is suddenly by emails rather than verbally, then this could be a sign that something is going on. Your superiors are trying to document everything to prove that you are not working as you should be.
