Thread regarding Kimberly-Clark layoffs

No innovation

Is anybody else noticing how much we have stopped relying on innovation? Something that helped Kimberly-Clark actually become the company it is?

And how, if you actually try to innovate, you are held back by bureaucracy?

I think all of our problems could be solved if we went back to what we know works - innovating.

Unfortunately, this management is much more reliant on layoffs to improve numbers than anything else. And we all know that’s just a temporary fix.

I completely agree that KC needs to innovate, however, the problem runs much deeper than not innovating. It starts all the way at the top, the President of Family Care is a monster! All he cares about it making money and reporting a profit to share holders. The HQ environment is the most toxic I have ever experienced in the 14 years I have been here. The North American President of Sales is an egotistical old man that can't keep his hands off the young female interns and is so busy building his 5th multi million dollar home he doesn't even think twice about firing hundreds of working people, just so he can make his quarterly profit number. This isn't about the elimination of dead wood or redundancy, this is about KC not caring about their employees and creating an environment where it's eat or be eaten of one another. Upper management is rewarded for verbally abusing their employees and for throwing anyone under the bus to protect themselves. Until the toxicity and fear culture of being eliminated if you say or do one wrong thing at HQ, nothing new or exciting will come out of Neenah, WI.

200% agree. Management focusing on making a small buck, shutting plants down, moving machines, cutting down on labor. We need to innovate and stay competitive.
