My boss is asking me to consider eliminating one of my directs. A bunch of people in other departments were let go last Friday, but I wasn't here last week. The reason is that one our clients suddenly went out of business, so he is trying to slash enough payroll to cover the deficit.
What criteria would you use? Seniority? Pay? They both do their work well. One has a slightly more snarky attitude than the other, doesn't hide his frustration as well.
I really hate to lose either of them. They both keep plenty busy. But, I wouldn't be the only one losing directs I don't want to do without.
p.s. I'm a longtime forum member in a new disguise. :wink:
