Why Are We Afraid to Fire People?
I think the word "fire" in the phrase "fire people" is a little bit extreme. Might it be better to say "relocate people" or "transition people"? Fire people is so punitive. It's angry and final. It hurts. And because the word and the act of firing has that connotation, it is an action very few employers do right.
