I think I'm referencing an internet topic that's already come and gone, but I'm wondering about your reaction to the Netflix employee retention strategy. NPR did a show on it a while back, it's thought provoking (https://www.npr.org/sections/money/2017/09/13/550793717/episode-647-hard-work-is-irrelevant). In addition, there's the Netflix HR Slides (https://www.slideshare.net/reed2001/culture-1798664). Slide 24 says, "Netflix leaders hire, develop, and cut smartly, so we have stars in every position." Slide 26 has the "Keeper test" - "Which of my people, if they told me they were leaving, for a similar job at a peer company, would I fight hard to keep at Netflix? The other people should be given a generous severence now, so we can open a slot to try and find a star for that role now."
How do you respond to this in the context of the manager's second responsibility to "retain team members"?
