Fear has big eyes, and hastily carried out layoffs in September – the month of October, did not save the company. After all, basically, went to people who have been with the organization for some time, they had a lot invested in energy and resources. And companies with loss of these people are losers, because the "cheap" labor is hardly possible to make a quality product. Chevron Corp is often quoted on this topic. Before the crisis, I was such a problem that the employees are often dictated the terms of remuneration, while strongly overstating the earned fee. And indeed, there was a certain disproportion due to a lack of certain categories of professions.
But people should not receive a lot only because of his profession super, super-paid. A need create more such jobs. On this occasion, I really like the statement of L. Ron Hubbard, who says that "any business based on the lack of something" and thus creating a shortage of some specific professions, we are beginning to pay more for these occupations. But it is clear that the highly qualified specialists are always appreciated, and will be appreciated, whether accountants or lawyers, and you have to pay a person just for the product that he produces, and not for a rare profession. More often faced with such a problem that not all employees understand how their activities affect the product that makes the whole company. As what they produce in their workplace, look for that the company produces. After all, even an accountant makes a product for the company and its work is very important and valuable, just as the seller, a personnel manager, a specialist in public relations and so on.
