SUBJECT : Reduction of Staff and Filling Open Positions


With 4 months left in our fiscal year, there remain significant staff-reduction quotas to meet. Enclosed are hiring guidelines to help us meet this objective. As you know, Potato Tasties volunteered to reduce its staffing head count by 25 percent in an effort to meet Sanford Chips objectives. For this division, that meant going from 64 to 48 employees.


Many of you have reduced your office staff by one or more people, and I commend you for managing to do more with less. However, our higher-than-anticipated new business production and persistence have thwarted other divisions efforts to downsize.


Over the next week, the Sanford Chips Division management will re-evaluate each of the outstanding unfilled positions. Since we are at a zero-sum game, every subsequent addition to staff must be offset by a reduction through position elimination or attrition.


The attached hiring policies may seem overly bureaucratic, but they are the only way we can manage a decentralized department to a specific staffing level. Thank you for your cooperation in following these guidelines.
