Unhappy because your world has changed?

The motor industry has become quite a challenging place. Times are quite difficult at the moment, especially for some groups and for some franchises. And sometimes high performers get particularly troubled when their employer single-handedly changes the way they are paid or rewarded. What should your first reaction be?We get many calls from people who have walked out on their job because the earnings are just not there any longer. They have been used to earning £65k to £70k as a highly successful salesman, and then your package will only yield £40k at best for the same level of performance. No wonder they are upset. But is walking out with nowhere to go the best strategy? One thing is for sure, the powers that be will not lose any sleep over it, they probably wanted to lose all of their high earners in any case. But out of a job you will find a job much more difficult to come by, especially if everybody else is leaving  in droves at the same time. My advice to everyone, do not make any hasty decisions. If you delay by a couple of months, at worse you will be only a few thousand pounds worse off, but you can use the time profitably to look for something else. Also, if your package changes then so has that of your manager's as well. In such circumstances sometimes, for the ambitious and highly capable, there is a "last man standing" scenario. Rapid promotions in a chaotic environment. You won't change a boss’s mind, but you might just protect your own future, or be catapulted to the next level. So stop, think and do not act hurriedly. There will be plenty of opportunity even if it takes you a few months.
