Sad news today as the UK Habitat goes into administration. This puts over 700 jobs across 30 stores at risk as the administrators try to find a rescue package for the beleaguered high street giant.
This is yet another demonstration that there are no jobs for life. For such an iconic brand from the sixties to now be on the brink of its demise, it really epitomises the turbulence in the retail sector. Clearly if all these people do lose their jobs it will be very difficult for all concerned, in the short term. However, a large proportion of people that are made redundant use this situation to “take stock” and very often end up far better off than when they had their job.
For many, enforced unemployment is the catalyst needed to make the transition from employment to self-employment. With more people than ever working for themselves, a genuine work from home opportunity is a real alternative to the insecurities of working a conventional job.
