What is the best message when informing the rest of your company that someone was terminated? The backstory is that this employees performance has been struggling, he was put on a PIP, and in recent convos, he’s said that his role isn’t for him. As he is getting terminated due to performance, it feels more amicable now that he knows it’s not working and that he needs to find a new job. Thoughts on message to the rest of the company?

Lame? Agency submits Microsoft’s Adaptive controller into product innovation categories and brags about winning it. Besides editing the case study, should they get credit for it? Asking for a friend.
Was graciously given a heads up by a friend in management that I (& half the office) will be laid off. Aside from grabbing portfolio stuff, how should I prepare for my final day(s?) on this earth?
What are some Diversity & Inclusion strategies to implement in the workplace ? Additionally, if you are starting a D&I committee internally, what are some key factors to consider?
We all self-promote sometimes. You simply have to if you’re going to survive or get work in this business. But a few minutes ago I got a message from some guy named Fred Goldberg. No message/note just a link to his book & image comparing his to Ogilvy’s. Even as someone who’s had to do his own PR for personal projects & sell things, this just seemed cheesy & shameless & really amateur. Blocked. Anybody else get this shameless, hamfisted LinkedIn plug from this dude?

Advertising Truths #23 - When a C(whatever letter here)O says "the work comes first", politics come first.
I hope there’s more to life than advertising. It really doesn’t feel like I have anything at all rn. My CD told me I’ve had no home runs this year and discredited me from the only award I’ve received. I’m not close to anyone at work bc it’s so cliquey and Bro. Im depressed and anxious, I really feel like I’m wasting my life away. I put up a front and pretend to like work, but I reaping don’t. Thanks for letting me vent

I hear a lot of bad things recently about Strategy& Middle East, in complete paradox with Booz & Co historical presence in the region (they used to talk about MBBB in the past): - Very bad Inchallah culture, completely dominated by Lebanese coming from AUB. - Greatly overstaffed (trend began weeks before covid) with tons of people on the beach. - Unhealthy competition between partners (they have more than 50 in the region). - Outsourcing their technical work to cheaper PwC. Any info?
