Wow…  just wow..

Why don’t we just utterly and completely take an out of work individual and ground them down with our heel?

This article is insane in the most perfectly rational sort of way.   The concept is that there is talent out there if you steal it from your contributors..

  • Screw developing a loyal employee base
  • Screw developing talent internally
  • Screw internal promotions

Here is a thought.. if there is a talent shortage.. 1) work, really work with what you have internally and what you have applying to your company and develop their skills over time.   2) be flexible with people’s needs and empower your decision makers to meet those needs one on one.  HINT: If you use #2 as an incentive for #1 you have a virtuous cycle.

But that’s allot of work, so let’s just throw money at it.. so the people who are in the positive loop get more and more and those who got stuck in some crazy corporate wierdness and lost their job get to stay unemployed.   Yeah, that’s a good plan.
