Staying productive after a layoff

Dear Annie: My company has slashed several thousand jobs in two waves of layoffs, one in December and another about two weeks ago. I manage a department that used to have 41 people in it, and now numbers 28 (not counting me). Thank God I didn’t personally have to let anyone go — my employer’s policy is to have HR handle the whole thing — but we were a fairly tight-knit group, and now I see signs that my staff is demoralized and discouraged.img src=”http://feeds2.feedburner.com/~r/rss/money_news_economy/~4/EaJXBe9IOjk” height=”1″ width=”1″/
