[Slashdot] - Amazon Managers Say They 'Hire To Fire' To Meet Annual Turnover Goals

Recommended Posts

A Slashdot reader shares a report: Amazon has a goal to get rid of a certain percentage of employees every year, and three managers told Insider they felt so much pressure to meet the goal that they hired people to fire them. "We might hire people that we know we're going to fire, just to protect the rest of the team," one manager told Insider. The practice is informally called "hire to fire," in which managers hire people, internally or externally, they intend to fire within a year, just to help meet their annual turnover target, called unregretted attrition (URA). A manager's URA target is the percentage of employees the company wouldn't regret seeing leave, one way or the other.
