Sun Microsystems has turned to very drastic measures to inspire worker productivity at the company, according to a CRN interview.
Sun recently fired 3,500 workers and made a series of changes within its executive ranks. But, if anyone inside Sun thought their job was safe for now, CEO Scott McNealy has delivered a shocking message.
We're sure McNealy really meant a "depth chart" on every job within the company. Sun, however, is know for being ahead of the curve in a number of areas, including workforce practices. Sun often talks about cutting back on the number of offices provided to employees, encouraging staffers to work at home or to use their Java cards to log into any desktop on Sun campuses. Perhaps the new "explosives as encouragement" policy just builds on this tradition. ®
