Kaye/Bassman’s Brad Ellis Layoff Perspective


Kaye/Bassman’s Brad Ellis Discusses Layoffs

Plano, Texas, 6/4/2010: Brad Ellis, a Partner at leading executive search firm Kaye/Bassman International, commented in an interview with LiveCareer that layoffs frequently occur for extremely minor, even haphazard reasons – even for cooking food other people thought was “smelly.”

The problem is compounded by poor managerial practices including “grade inflation” whereby substandard employees are given satisfactory performance reviews, which makes it difficult to decide which employees to lay off.

In an economy still seeing recession-related job losses, it becomes doubly important to be aware of the social aspect of hiring and firing decisions. Even well-paid professionals may find that their high salaries make them appealing layoff targets for budget-cutting accountants. Kaye/Bassman’s expert recruiters can help prevent such problems by conducting extensive pre-hiring interviews and assessments using their Client Focused Search and Market Mastery concepts. This helps ensure that employees will be too valuable to be selected for layoffs even in hard financial times.
