Thread regarding Dun & Bradstreet (D&B) layoffs

This is the wrong approach

Why does this management believe that laying off its best and most knowledgable employees will solve many problems created by years of their own lousy decisions? Has this ever actually worked?

Shouldn't the simple fact that there have been no substantial improvements after any of the layoffs be enough to prove how wrong this approach is?

I don’t think improvement in bottom line is a true measure of success. Who knows what adjustments they made to make it look good. The true measurement is increase in sales and revenues. Honestly, they should clean up from the top to make sustainable operational improvement. They got rid of strong leaders and the bad leaders are still there
