I'm not sure exactly what these people do but you are right, just being on call for 8 hours like doctors is what most of us do in the corporate jobs especially now that we are at home.
There are days where I'm in a Teams call for 5 hours but most of my days are maybe 2-3 hours of meetings and spend the rest of it monitoring emails while checking the Coli (like I'm doing now):mjlol:

Lol
You're better than me. Right now I am binge watching Dopesick on Hulu until my meeting this afternoon.

Maybe I’m an a$$hole (or someone who used to be in management)


But if 15% of your staff isn’t hitting their KPI, should you not fire them?

what if that 15% is already on a performance plan (discipline) and to be more efficient you just decide as a company to get rid of those people?

what if that 15% in staff deduction only accounts for 3% productivity? You’re supposed to let them hang on at a loss?

I get the whole “it’s Christmas” angle, but IF warranted (if, because I don’t know :whoa:) is a CEO supposed to look out for individuals at the detriment of the company?

I don’t get the outrage. It’s shytty yes, but without more context it’s hard to know how to frame it (besides it being bad timing, but when is good timing to get fired?)

fukk them KPI's nikka

How about not firing them as a group via a video “call” :dahell:


And I put “call” in quotation marks cuz with that many people, it was probably more of a webinar setup where they couldn’t actually speak to the presenter.

Situations like this are why I never have a problem with people moving in their own best interests.

Take your paid time off, vacations, move on if you got a better option, and all that other shyt because these companies won’t hesitate to terminate you the minute they’re not reaching productivity goals or if they want to suddenly do budget cuts.

They give no fukks about you, you are just a number on a sheet of paper to them.

It is also why I would encourage you to start your own business and have multiple streams of income, so you aren’t azzed in the event of something like this happening.

Most jobs don't necessitate a full 8 hours of work anyway. I wfh and my job is done after 1 hour on most days. Minus all of his stupid and pointless meetings I doubt the CEO works more than 2 hours per day himself.

This is what I always bring up to the bootlickers that like the system as it is! Most CEOs have zero clue how the actual day to day of the job actually works. If every employee were to walk out one day they literally wouldn't know what to do. So it's cruel to give them such high pay to be a passenger on a well oiled machine

That’s why I cringe when I hear some employees proudly state “I’ve never taken a sick day off work. I’ve never been late.” Ironically, those are the ones who rarely get promoted. They think giving their life to a company will be reciprocated. :mjlol:

People get fired in mass all the time.

the CEO ain’t trying to have 1 on 1s with these people, he’s got a golf appointment :mjlol:


Being serious though, if they sent out a mass email, it would’ve gotten the same reaction “why not tell them to their face :dahell:

the medium doesn’t matter. His job is to make sure the company is healthy, their job is to do their job.

If one doesn’t work, the other has to :yeshrug:

Was about to post this. All those coli brehs laughing about fukking around all day during WFH? :umad:

CEO had every right to dump these clowns. Timing sucks but act like they’re going to pay you for nothing.
