Kennards Hire have decided that the right thing to do by its employees, who have delivered many a year now of solid profitability, is to the give them all a $3,000 bonus. Now that is a nice little stimulus for its employees.
Compare this to all the MBA business doofuses out there who have sent in the razor gangs to slash headcount and save the 2009 dividend. I am staggered that not one of these hot shots can see the link between the rampant shedding of jobs in the wider-economy and the plummet in consumer sentiment? Err might defer buying that plasma as I will be doing it tough on the soup kitchen lines next year.
So come on corporates - do a Kennards and think about retaining your staff. Short term pain, long term gain! Unless you are about to go broke off course, do your bit for Australia and look after your employees, not just your shareholders.
