It was a purple letter day at Yahoo today with over 1000 employees being shown the door, but Yahoo couldn’t even manage that properly.
Besides the usual employee twitters and memo leaks, someone also leaked the Yahoo Powerpoint presentation that explained how to gently get rid of employees.
Among the gems from the slides include call center like standard comments on what to say to people as you relieve them from their jobs, corny lines blaming the economic crisis, and more.
Imagine being fired from your job to find that your supervisor or manager cared so little for you they read from a script. Yahoo Sensitivity Epic Fail.
The delightful Yahoo slides as follows (via Valleywag). If you’re completely inept at laying people off, maybe you can use them as well 🙂
