sneaky, but true
I learned in a pyschology class, in order to make yourself 'essential', just know a couple things no one else knows....like, how to reboot the system or something. I thought it was sneaky, but definately see the truth in it.
But hopefully, if you are a hard worker, your supervisors will see that in you and keep you around.

I am the "Smelly Feet" guy. I know. I am not sure I will be around much longer.

it's not about the person
sad to say, but in the corporate world it's nothing personal, it's $#'s - almost any person can fill the shoes of the guy leaving, usually it's 'many people filling in the shoes of those being let go' - it's the difference between getting a job and getting welfare!

At one of the parks I work at, I have been known to be the primary person for helping to keep the park clean from virtually litter-free and clean restrooms. My supervisor noted that I am the primary person for helping keep the park clean.

Everyone always love to be around the person that always has something nice to say to everyone! To be "essential" at work, be the person who greets everyone with a smile, a friendly good morning, or a sincere compliment.
At the end of the day, it's the "real stuff" that matter most to others!
