Several months ago I wrote a blog about paying employees to leave. LocalJobNetwork.com radio read the blog and conducted a short interview to dive into this topic into more detail. You can listen to the interview here. I am still an advocate of this as it makes the employees truly think about if they want to be part of the organization or not. You will still have people who will not take the payout because they feel they don't have the skills to go somewhere else or can't match the salary but at least it makes them evaluate where they are and where they want to go, which I don't see as a bad thing. One of the questions they asked was what is the downside to paying employees to leave. I couldn't really think of too many negatives, do you have any thoughts on the downsides of paying employees to leave?
Would love to hear any thoughts you might have about this concept in general.
