Foxconn, hardware supplier for companies like Apple and HP, has a problem with employee retention. Not the kind of problem solved with stock options or an on-site lunch buffet, but the kind solved with anti-suicide nets around the roofs of your factories.
Mildly annoyed that flimsy safety nets haven’t kept employees from wanting to kill themselves rather than work another day, Foxconn is taking serious measures to prevent the horrifying deaths. By making employees promise that they won’t commit suicide.
Perhaps your employees wouldn’t be so interested in offing themselves if they were allowed to sit down during their 16-hour shifts.
