What's PIP culture?

like

Amazon puts on average 10% of their workforce on PIPs to push them out on an annual basis.

My team recently had one of our team members exit on a PIP. They were within one year of hiring - former Deloitte consultant hired as a cloud economist. Hardly not a significant sample, but we cut 1 out of 24. We've always had extremely stringent hiring standards. Most of the time we get the decisions right, but (at least in my group) we rip the band-aid off very quickly if we make a mistake. I don't know exactly why they were let go beyond speculation, but the other members of his team alluded to the PIPed employee not pulling their weight.

Where are you “hearings lots” about this?

I am looking to gain certification or other credentialing in diversity and inclusion, not only because it would look good on my resume both for future job-search purposes and also to become better educated in this area, which is growing in importance. I looked at SHRM's "Inclusive Workplace Culture Specialty Credential" and got a bit of "sticker shock" at the cost - $1,655.00 for members. Does anyone have other suggestions on training/credentialing in this area?

Honest question: when you see a job listing like so, is your reaction... A. Good for them insisting on BIPOC; this industry needs more diversity & hiring the same middle aged white folks doesn't cut it anymore. or B. YES, every agency/brand should champion diversity but is it fair, right or even "legal" to overtly dissuade white people from applying? Can't they just "hire the best candidate" regardless of race/gender/etc? I get B but I'm team A because the 2nd ? in B hasn't exactly..worked.

How efficient is the referral system at Amazon? Been referred for two roles. Status is "Under consideration" for two weeks now.
