5 Tips to Avoid Job Cutbacks

True, the crisis is real and is here, but do not take hasty decisions.  Before taking the scissors and cut, check the garment and how it adheres to the body, not only requires a few tweaks and tweezers.
 The first recommendation in this crisis is taking a while, "says the director from Monterey Human Resource System-ITESM, Ricardo Johnson.  "Do not make impulsive decisions, reaction, inspired by discussions of coffee or affected by what they say news or by what others are saying, employers or friends," advises the doctor of Directors, member of the National System of Researchers.
 "We must define what your competitive strategy.  If you are competing via price, quality, differentiation, or are too focused on a niche, "says Flores Zamba.  "For example, if your strategy is to be in a competitive niche, you likely impact of the crisis will be different."
 And the expectation is that a fall in sales or profits may lead to hasty decisions.  "Sadly, in these situations, many organizations can enter at a panic.  Trying to fix their numbers, their financial results look good, "says Gabriel Fernández del Castillo, director of Marketing and Training to Mexico from the HR consultant, Hay Group.  "We must evaluate the business model.  It is a good time to question you in this situation if the way your organization is making money is correct or you need to rethink the way we do, "he suggests.
 Do not let the situation make you lose sight of the future.  When the firm's survival is not in doubt, take great caution, especially in human capital research.  "Any decision that has to do with people is a structural decision to cut, while the situation is that today is the BCS," said Mario Zavala, professor of management personnel IPADE.
 Unlike what happened in other crises, this time is no time to prepare, experts say.  "Those who have no contact with the U.S. have time to go a little more planning, to anticipate cuts," said Angelica Martinez, deputy director of Productivity Systems, a human resources consulting Guadalajara.
 That gives time to strengthen the defenses of the company.  "There is a positive prevention: it's like when you feel that you will start to give flu and take lemon juice in the morning to avoid the bed and stop going to work," adds Jesus Gonzalez de la Rosa, director general of the firm.  Do not have time for cool reflection can endanger the company warns González de la Rosa, as she saw that happened to some business in other crises in Jalisco.  "Many are anticipating making cuts very fast.  I have an example: the business owner turned off the lights first, then pulled out some staff, then repurchased no product ended up selling the door.
