I'm genuinely sorry to hear abt the layoffs at AirBnB and my heart goes out to your coworkers who are affected. How can a company approach restructuring in a way that is ethical?

I appreciate this post...and it's really unfortunate that I agreed to do this session on the very day the layoffs were announced, my heart is with them today as well. It's a painful, sad day for the company and a lot of great colleagues.
I've obviously thought a lot about this...you'd love to do whatever you can to avoid a restructure, given the human toll -- first, do it if you have to do it to preserve the overall health of the company, don't do it to get a one time stock price boost. Two, leaders have to absorb pain first -- CEOs and leadership can't continue to draw full salary and bonuses in times like this, they have to sacrifice first. And last, treat people with generosity as much as you are capable of doing it -- good severance, health benefits, job placement. As awful as this is, I'm pleased that the company is doing a lot for those who are being let go.

From what I understand, ethics is separate from legal. Legal violations have consequences, ethical violations don’t. What’s the point of ethics if there are no consequences? Sure when it’s convenient to be ethnical, everyone will be. It only matters when it’s not convenient. So should there be ethics set up with consequences like loss of job that applies evenly for everyone in the company including the CEO? Should their be financial consequences set up for smaller violations?

Hi everyone, wanted to come back and talk about the work environment at the Washington Redskins/Football Club -- the Washington Post story was pretty jaw dropping. One troubling angle was the use of NDAs to stifle victims. NDAs have for too long enabled bad behavior to continue, and it's time companies pledged to stop using NDAs in settlements with victims -- the coverup is worse than the bad acts. I think Warren torpedoed Bloomberg's campaign due to his use of NDAs. Thoughts?
