It’s been a common conversation lately. More and more companies have been reducing their staffs through layoffs. Concerning at least, terrifying at most. And as we seem to be entering (or are already into) a recession, it feels like it doesn’t have an end in sight.
Here at Post Status we could report about what companies are doing what, and wax long and laboriously about the cost/benefits, hardships, ecosystem issues, etc., but what we’d rather do is be a resource for you.
So let’s focus on how we can help, instead.
