OK, Iíve been outsourced three times while working for a large international company. The first time I was struck by the fact that when I left there were three people replacing my job function.
The second- time several years later- I was outsourced and this time there were over five people in the same function. The third and final time was critical for me as I was too old to consider looking for work. Alas I was consumed by the outsource but allowed to continue to work at the same function with the appropriate reductions in pay and benefits.
But Walla! This time, being the most knowledgeable and senior I was able to divide up the work day with my other cohorts so that each of us only work two hours a day for the same pay! So next time youíre faced with outsourcing, consider infiltrating!
