Employees wary, unmotivated after sacking
My stars, how insightful! Who on earth would have guessed, that after there have been sackings at a company, the remaining employees are less motivated. It is a complete revelation.
I have heard that the Sydney Morning Herald are running these related stories:
- Study confirms reducing staff reduces employee costs
- Poll results: workers prefer not to be retrenched
- Happy staff are more productive
The only, and I mean the ONLY slightly surprising information provided by this "news" item, is the last paragraph, which states that nearly 50% of companies that sack staff need to rehire soon. And being one of those people that was retrenched and then re-hired quite soon after by the same company, it is not nearly so much of a surprise to me. Actually, what is a suprise is that these nearly 50% of companies are willing to admit their incompetence.
What is the greatest surprise is that:
- People got paid for the results of the study; and
- Someone got paid to write that article.
