Literally, overnight my role as an event organizer disappeared in the blink of an eye.
I didn’t go into melt-down and I didn’t panic, but I did think ‘what am I going to do now’? It even crossed my mind that maybe I would be deemed ‘surplus to requirements’ and become a government statistic.
Thankfully I work at Crown and they do things differently.
During the whole of lockdown and with us all asked to work from home, the company took the decision not to make anyone redundant and furlough was not an option.
Instead, they have been very clever and re-engineered the roles of those individuals that were seriously affected, and I fell into that category.
