Bob Sutton on across the board cuts
It's been a long time since I linked to a Bob Sutton post... but here's one where he posts against the practice of forced layoff of the bottom 10% performers.
As organizations look for easy means of laying off employees we'll see a lot more excuses like "we normally fire the bottom x% people" so that they don't have to provide separation payouts.
That is just plain wrong.
Anyway, back to the reasons that the Prof says it is bad:
