This post isn’t directly related to the BlackBerry, however, it is email related. I was watching SquawkBox on MSNBC like I do every morning before heading out to work and I heard something that quite honestly shocked the heck out of me.
RadioShack has just fired over 400 employees via an email message.
I am speechless… What HR genius came up with this brilliant idea. People deserve more respect than that.
I am sure that you have heard of employees going postal. This is the kind of thing that could lead to someone “going RadioShack“. Needless to say, I won’t be shopping there anytime soon. Not because I don’t like the store, but because I would be worried about a former employee coming to pick their last check up with a shot gun.
I agree…that was a totally classless act on the part of Radio Shack.
When will some companies learn that there is an economic benefit to actually treating their employees right?
Imagine how this will impact morale at Radio Shack…
Employees won’t retaliate at stores…it was corporate. Besides, it wasn’t a surprise and they were paid well. The media is blowing it up because they have nothing else to talk about. I’ve got an idea, let’s spend hours of productive time talking about some elderly person who is suing a fast-food establishment for “unknowing temperature of a hot beverage”.
