Down, But Not Out

Earlier this week, Media Prima Bhd announced that it had given official notifications to all employees affected by its manpower rationalisation exercise, which is part of the next phase of its business transformation exercise. What is the one word they avoided using? Retrenchment. We’re going to be discussing what to do if your job future looks uncertain for 2020.
