Thank you very much. This is great now. Appreciate all your help and revisions. Thank you once again! You did a wonderful job.
1) Who Goes, Who Stays?
The consulting firm you have worked for over the last year is having some financial troubles. The large contracts it once had are slowly going away, and as your company struggles to make payroll, it is clear that layoffs must occur. The sales staff has not been meeting the sales goals set for them, resulting in incorrect budgets.
It has been decided that at least three people in the sales department should be laid off. You create a spreadsheet with pertinent sales employee data:
NameTitleYears with the companyLast overall rating on performance evaluation (1Ã¢â‚¬â€œ5 scale, 5 being highest)Last yearÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s sales goal met?Deb WatersSales Manager13N/A as her position is managerialJeff SpiritsAccount Manager53Yes, 1% over goalOrlando ChangAccount Manager34Yes, 10% over goalJake ToolmeyerAccount Manager24No, 2% under goalAudrey BarnesAccount Manager55Yes, 15% over goalKelly AndrewsAccount Manager12No, 20% under goalAmir SaiedAccount Manager85Yes, 5% over goalWinfrey JonesAccount Manager42No, 10% under goal
Making reasonable assumptions, develop criteria for the layoffs in the sales department.
