Counseling and Educational Psychology
It is every employee’s worst nightmare to be summoned into the supervisor’s/ commanders office or the human resources office and hearing a story about how slow the economy is, how income streams are down, and how the senior management is now flying coach to save money. Regardless of the details or the varied excuses, the simple fact is that this employee no longer has a job. Devastated, this individual packs up his belongings and leaves the company headquarters.
