Expert gives advice on avoiding redundancy
Employees should put themselves forward for more projects and development opportunities at work as this could help them to keep their jobs if a firm makes redundancies, it has been claimed.

Writing for Job Dig, Mary Elizabeth Bradford says that people need to demonstrate their skills and prove their value as a worker.

Similarly, they should also highlight instances when they have taken action which benefitted the company so that managers are aware of their accomplishments.

Ms Bradford offers a final piece of advice, suggesting that employees find solutions to company problems which are currently being ignored.

"Proactively provide solutions to gain additional visibility by providing tangible value and demonstrating your positive initiative," she states.

In other redundancy news, firms were yesterday warned by equality minister Harriet Harman that it is "unlawful" to use the credit crunch as an excuse to let go of female workers unnecessarily.
