Employee Expiration Dates

This is a fun read that hides a real truth-as companies change, their workforces need to change with them. When the employees in those workforces stay static, it becomes a drag on performance for everyone around.

The idea of expiration dates for employees is simply another way of saying that employers need to keep assessing their workforces, provide solid feedback and a path for improvement, and weed out people who either can't take the hint, or act in such a way that shows that they aren't willing to be part of the team. Identifying these people (putting an expiration date on them, to use the article's metaphor) is important, but putting together a strategy to keep refreshing and improving your workforce is even more important.
