Zappos! CEO Tony Hsieh re-posted his letter explaining the company's layoffs on the Zappos! CEO and COO blog last week before cross-posting the blog link on his twitter:
Tony doesn't mince words in his posts or the letter - he refers to the layoffs as "layoffs," explains the financial justification, and discusses severance offerings for (now) ex-employees. There isn't much more for me to say about this move except to echo the voices of many WOMM enthusiasts by saying that this is transparency and authenticity at its finest. I realize it's last week's news now but I felt it was worth posting for anyone that may have missed it. Tons of credit to Tony at Zappos - can't wait to see his keynote speech at the WOMMA Summit!
