    I guess though it may have been galling for the council to have to pay out certain undeserving individuals this is the price you sometimes have to pay to get rid of deadwood.
    Unused annual leave pay and sick pay is ok, but other sweeteners to bugger off should be limited as much as possible.

    The annual saving should such ne’er do wells not be replaced far outweighs the cost of dissing them. The problem is that the empire builders replace dead wood with sycamore trees.

    The seven craziest cost cuts ever
    By Tony Featherstone
    I visited a potential client at its state office this week. The business no longer has a receptionist, so visitors ring the buzzer and wait for an employee to let them in.

They may not realise keeping clients waiting, and disrupting staff who have to open the door, costs more in the long run than the small salary saved.

    I’m more impressed (or depressed) by the revelation that there are 43 current DCC staff members who earn in excess of $100k a year. Given that there are nowhere near 43 departments within DCC (more like half that number) that means that ridiculous salaries are not merely confined to heads of departments.
