境随心转 - 第二十六篇 '境随心转篇 '



境随心转


有个善知识曾经教导我: "心的转变也同样改变著人所处的境".

11 月 2008,USATODAY.com 新闻报导: 全国的失业率升至 14 年来的新高 6.5 % , 10 月份 240,000 人失业.

10 月 2008 ,新闻报导, 传闻 GM ( General Motor) and Chrysler 将合并为一家公司. 其中一项好处是两家公司可以互用大家的员工, 可以确保工会成员的工作保障.

我对工会的印象是好坏参半的. 和我一起工作的同事有许多都是工会成员. 有一次, 同事的工作做完了, 整天坐在那里没事做. 我跟上司说 道: ' 我可以训练这个人做这项工作,让他学习新的东西. 对他的前途是会有帮助的'

上司回说道: '不可以,因为他是工会成员,你讲的这个工作不在工会的合约内 . 如果让他做这个工作. 工会将控告公司违反合同'.
那时我根本就是讨厌工会了.

 

2006 年 6 月, 公司的那次的裁员,我开始留意公司的行政策略. 2008 年, 公司的第 3 季营业报告是赚钱的, 而且比预期的好. 但公司还是跟往年一样, 裁员 20%. 也有一些分行, 18 个员工 , 只留下一人.

 

我突然想到一个部门. 他们负责的产品,已经被一个新产品代替了. 那个旧的产品, 广告和销售部门都已经关闭,销售人员一个人也没有了.

 

因为公司 想要维持现有的客户. 希望在合同到期时, 客户会转签新产品的合同 因此公司仍然保持着几个技术人员. 这些技术员也不能转到新产品的部门. 因为他们没有受过新产品的技术训练. 但当有些技术人员辞职后,公司也不会填补空了的位置 .

 

已经过了两年. 我发现, 那个部门仍然还在. 我查看它的销售数量. 是有增加没有减少. 我心中想著, 这是怎么的回事. 我找那个部门的主管, 我问他, 新客户是从那里找来的 ?.
他微笑著的回说道: '是安装技术员人他们自己找的 '.
我很惊讶的问他道: ' 他们是有工会的. 不能做销售的工作. 公司是会被控告违约的. '


事情原来是这样的:
当技术员知道,他们将在一个 社区做维修工作. 他们会在前一天到附近的社区 派发广告传单. 然后,如果有客户对产品有兴趣, 技术员立即通知新帐户部门, 如果没有信用的问题,那就立即做安装. 比原来有营销部门时的程序 还要快,服务还要好.

 

我问他,派发广告传单不是技术人员工作范围内的事 . 他回说道: " 他们 是在他们自己的休闲时间内, 自愿做的!". 我听到之后,心内的愉快, 多到找不到地方可以放下. 现在想起了, 仍然还是为他们高兴.



他们的努力,挽救了大约 300 人的工作. 正是如那个善知识所说的: "心的转变也同样改变著人所处的境". 工会的合约也管不了他们的心! 呵呵 。。。
