Our Divisional Administrator called an all-hands meeting on about one hour’s notice. Seems about 15 (out of about 100) people are being reassigned to a big high priority project. Everything else will suffer, including yesterday’s top priority projects. They will be looking for replacement staff, but that will take a while (This is the government).
I was not one of the “chosen”, for which I am feeling a mix of relief and disappointment.
Could be worse–a lot worse–in many places lately this sort of sudden meeting has been for announcing layoffs.
