So much better
Ruthless in business but doesn’t realise dolphins are actually highly intelligent.
Describing people in a group layoff as “unlucky” is appalling.
Did they choose the names at random? Was the CEO in the pool?
No. They weren’t unlucky. Someone made a choice to lay them off. And the preson ultimately responsible is the CEO.
He should OWN it.
That’s the cold, impersonal way of corporate life. Mass layoffs are disgusting and show a lack of respect for the real people they effect
Hopefully they all find better jobs
This was already deleted by the mods earlier for being not oniony:
I seem to recall RadioShack doing something like this, only using email.
The real amazing thing is that here is a company I never even heard of that has 10,000 employees (900 was 9% of workforce).
At the end of the day, if they had one on one meetings with 900 employees, it would have taken like a week and during that time the other 9000 employees plus the 900 getting the axe would have been freaking out for that week. It is not clear to me what would have been a superior way to administer the bad news.
way to not live up to the promises of your brand, eh??
Based off the title ALONE.
How else were they supposed to do it? Individually meet with 900 people to say the exact same thing?
Seems if a CEO has to mass fire that many people, they might have screwed up by hiring too many people and should go too.
And still, the late Iwata and other execs at Nintendo would instead cut their own salaries than fire employees.
This is impressive by any CEO by any company anywhere!
