Joshua 1:1-9 ヨシュア １：１〜９
Ask: Who, What, Why, When, Where and How.
Man is forever looking to the bottom line. Qantas Airline reported this week that they were 84% lower than they wanted to be. They were only going to have a profit of 45 million. They plan to lay off 1,000s of workers. The story of Jack Welch at GE was a boss who did not allow things to stay the same. His company grew from a $26 billion in revenues to $130 billion and from around $14 billion in market value to over $410 billion—making it the most valuable company in the world at that time. One of his mantras was: Every year, GE would fire the bottom 10% of the work force. On one side, we can see that his company became very successful but on the other side, over 100,000 people were laid off during his tenure. Success, yes—for some but at what cost? Sure he wanted to make his company #1 and he did, so does that make him a successful businessman? Yes, but the 100,000 workers out of job felt the cutting edge of his corporate knife and yet people call his work successful. That is the workforce.
