In three days time, 800 of my workmates will discover they no longer have jobs. They will be given one month to find a new position in the company or they are out. They are ‘at risk'. Fortunately, my department is unaffected. In my current role, I move people around projects, getting the best person into the most suitable jobs. I have nothing to do with redundancy selection. Somehow, I don't think the unfortunates will see it that way. I expect to be abused, insulted, shouted at and hated, but I'd still much rather be in my position than theirs.
