I’m not a big fan of these “fire people” type of articles. I suppose this might be a bit tongue-in-cheek but it still implies employees are disposable and that there aren’t other solutions to problem members of staff like retraining or changing company policy.
Also not a big fan of DHH’s contrarian, all-or-nothing bloviating that seems to pass as “thought leadership”.
The title was a reaction to Jason Calacanus' statement: “Fire people who are not workaholics”.
I read “fire” as “don’t hire.”
Alternative title: “Workaholics considered harmful”.
