Career workshops???

SHRM send out an email stating they are offering 3 Career Strategy workshops.
The attachment says "As part of the Laboratory’s continued commitment to support employee development, there will be a series of informal workshops offered that center around career management."
The courses are resume development, interview prep, & networking for career growth.
Hmmmm....in these times of wage reductions, furloughs that are not furloughs, and all other budget uncertainty, this is a perfect way to further degrade our morale. Unless management is just thinking about our needs..

These courses were offered at the time of the layoffs 5 years ago. Yes it is an ominous sign, but give them credit for doing something helpful for employees. Better to offer this than offer nothing.

It is a decent thing for an organization to do. And by the way, everyone should take advantage of these resources. Even for those who want to stay at the national labs as lifers, just remember that your job there or anywhere else is not guaranteed.

They are eventually planning to layoff employees at all of the NNSA labs. Maybe not right away but it is coming given the bleak federal budget outlook.

Are you surprised by this?
