Fail: Letting Go of Talented Employees You Can’t Function Without

I think the only thing sadder than a certain company I know of letting go of their best employees is when they have to hire them back as consultants at a premium.

Although this is a sort-of follow-up on my last FailBlog, it’s worth noting the common mistake.

Certain people cannot be functioned without, at least not without proper succession planning to take over their functions. In cases like this companies need to suck up their pride, put their money where their mouth is, and make a offers to these people who hopefully will take them.

Next time future planning and making well thought out decisions might be a better idea. Here’s a chance for other employers to learn from the mistakes of others!
