Today our group discuss about the new presentation about the GE firing system. In my opinion, this system have help to keep all the employees innovation. But reduce loswet 10% maybe will make the risk for the company. In order to make out of the system to achieve the desired functionality, reduce risk, there are a few principles can be referenced.
First, the attrition rate should not be fixed. Because fixed rate of firing will lead everyone under the fear, it will effecet the performance.
Second, the performance should not be compared with each other between employees. Want to be fair to compare different people, will only lead to negative competition between each other.
In addition, the system should not be eliminated for a special event services. In order to rationalize the performance of dismissal due to certain non-distorted system away, just let the credibility of the bankruptcy system, causing employees to resist.
