Employees urged not to let redundancies affect their work
People are too concerned about redundancies and should concentrate on doing their jobs to the best of their ability, it has been claimed.
Talkbiznow believes that the best way for employees to weather the economic downturn is to show their potential to their employer and make an effort to stand out as a beneficial worker for a company.
Adopting this kind of approach may also help in the future if they do find themselves looking for a new job.
Mark Parker, executive chairman of Talkbiznow, said: "Future employers are looking at how you did excel in the previous job, what experiences you have, how you broaden your experience, how you learn more knowledge."
He also encourages people not to let themselves get too consumed with worry and plan for the future accordingly.
A spokesperson for ClickAJob insists that employees should be more self-confident.
"If you're good, youre good and should have nothing to worry about," he says.
"From an employer's point of view, dedicated and trained staff already familiar with company systems are worth their weight in gold - so as long as you look committed and professional, youre probably safe enough."
"If you're worried anyway and want to look good on the job market, you can verify your current work skills through an online assessment centre such as our ClickATest service," he continues.
"It brings your CV bang up to date with internationally-recognised certificates like having a degree for all those skills you've learned on the job."
Figures from the Office for National Statistics, published in November, revealed that the number of people in employment decreased by 99,000 over the third quarter of the year.
