Case No.VI: You’re Fired!

We are a middle-sized but growing insurance company. In our desire to build a

strong nucleus of talented, hardworking men, we’ve had to fire several of them.

As company president, the job of firing a man rests on my shoulders --- the part

of my job I hate most.

How do I fire an unsuitable employee without bruising his ego and without

getting involved in explanations which can start endless arguments?

The manager’s responsibilities are to:

1. Peruse the case.

2. Define the problem or problems correctly.

3. Identify the cause/s of the problems.

4. Recommend and justify the action/s to be taken.

5. Specify how the problems could have been avoided.

6. Formulate a policy to be used as a guide in future situations.

General Problem:

PROBLEMS

ego and getting involved in explanations which can start unnecessary arguments?

Subordinate Problems:

solving his problem?

of the Actions to be Taken

a. Extensive delivery of the reason.

The company president should explain in full detail and clear elaboration or

clarification the terms of the firing matter which is a necessary or operational act to

be done in the business in order to reach or attain the managerial objectives to a

strong business.

b. Transfer offers or job recommendations.

The president may offer recommended options of job opportunities and tell

c. Getting-out-of-job privileges and rights-of-the-employee grants

According to the by-laws, every employee has his own rights either in and out

of the job to claim or enjoy any privileges if and only if supported by an allowance

from the business entity. Hence, it is of good reasoning that the manager should

know these matters concerning his employees and may use these privileges to make

every employee to think that getting out of the job is not a total loss. Moreover, these

terms could be further applied to managerial strategies or systems in hiring and

firing process. The manager may allow implementation of particular terms and

conditions that would ease the hardship of firing an undesirable employee however

without too much loss in the entity’s side such as a calculated increase in money

receivables of the employee, or might at least be expressed even not in the form of

cash or check; beneficiary grants, and other employee-friendly offers.

Specifications on How the Problem/s could have

been Avoided

Improving the standards of hiring qualifications or criteria

The best way to avoid the risk of acquiring inefficient and unsuitable employees

is to regulate and maintain a good, strict standard since the period of hiring. Without

the accommodation of not-so-good employees, the need to fire inefficient workers will

not be a good deal anymore! Getting the best employees will require effective criteria in

the admission of workers. The manager, in behalf of the higher chairs of the entity,

should construct and publish a strict tolerance in accepting a controlled quota of

workers. Through the development of the qualifications during the recruitment of

applicants, the company’s workers will be assured to be good, hardworking, progressive,

and efficient and so the business operations shall reflect them. Areas during the

recruitment period could be considered as preliminary screening of applicants and

identifying those considered best qualified for the position.

The closer and the tighter the mutual relationship between the manager

and the worker, the easier they could understand each other in any possible situation

within the business. Therefore, good relationship and bond is significant. This could be

achieved through special programs that are meant to fulfill the purpose of strengthening

the

bond

among staff workers

and

the

managers, as

well.

Taking it from

other

companies, examples of this are certain conduction of seminars, special gatherings,

informal meetings, inter-company activities, and other interactional conventions. If this

thing would be achieved, the manner of firing an employee will not be almost a problem

to a manager.

This target could be seen especially during the period of Human Resource

Development, that is, the fundamental pillars of good management. It refers to the

updating of the personnel’s knowledge and attitudes with the end in view of improving

their skills and performance to achieve organizational objectives.

When the development in the company’s human resource is maintained,

the individual status of the employees is also influenced greatly since it is equally

8

important to the individual worker from the point of view job satisfaction and earning

power.

Formulation of Policy as Guide in Future Situations

At this point, the manager should implement a policy that will be effective

for the sake of controlling the occurrence of this problem. The policy could be

that:

Company X is of accepting ONLY employees/workers of efficient

performance, good conduct, discipline, and high professionalism; and

that Company X is of allowing minimal tolerance of ineptitude among

its employees/workers. If the proof of such case be noticed, Company X

is

is

or worker/s of the least effectual performance yet still

guaranteed with the best possible approach abiding.”

Appraisal of performance

“If the subordinate fails to achieve his objectives, the manager tells him briefly

in very specific terms what he did wrong and how he honestly feels about it. The

manager should also remind the subordinate how he values him and that he thinks
