IBM has funky names for firing their employees. Workforce balancing or resource actions, just to name two of them. In any case, it's a person with a spreadsheet that needs to get that earnings per share a little higher. A person you don't know and who does not know you.
Check the "Up in the Air" movie:"It is what sell, not what we do..."
They way how it works in many companies...
Die interessanteste deutsche Umschreibung dafür finde ich immer noch:
"Dem freien Arbeitsmarkt zur Verfügung stellen"
Das klingt so nach Chance und Aufbruch.....
"Understand and execute."
"How was your day in work?".
"Not good, I was resource-actioned"
Call it what you will. Everyone knows what it is. But sure that share price needs to get back on track eh? The emperor has no clothes left.
Paul, I find this corporate speak so disgusting, that I expect people to lie when their lips move.
You and I both sir.
Make that three of us.
and you call yourself friends...
Wanna be my friend, Carl? :)
With friends like you...
... you don't need any others.
Much love, so cute. Am I missing something here?
Get a dog, people.
The dogforce was rebalanced to Bangalore.
Because our Notes application is an end user focused solution, we gain general understanding of which companies use Notes around the world. Whenever an individual customer cancels, we contact them to learn why and if there is anything we can do to help.
Lately, we've seen several cancellations from IBMers who have been "Resourced Actioned", 'Laid Off", whatever IBM wants to call it.
Smart people, many tell me they have been at IBM for 20 years or more.
And if a column has the word lotus in it you are doomed. Another key Lotus staff member "left" Singapore yesterday. The only reason it is not news anymore is because there hardly any Lotis left.
Yep, and they rarely kill products... they just let them fade away.
Well, I guess they don't want that EBITDA to go south of 25%. They still want to "reward" their shareholders.
