However, the really interesting tidbit is newly appointed CEO Carol Bartz‘s strategy on preventing media leaks: promoting cash rewards to employees who turn in other employees that leak info to the press. A $1,000 cash reward, to be specific.
Writes Swisher, “Well, she has to do better than the $1,000 bounty she mentioned in a recent email to staff, since I got sent the memo sent out by Nash to staff about her departure in its entirety pretty quickly.”
She continues, “Yahoo is not a prison and its employees are not snitches and-more to the point-they won’t leak to me if Bartz fixes the company.”
Amen, Kara. What’s your take? Have you ever seen or experienced similar tactics at your place of work? We haven’t.
