    1. Companies should think how much cutting staff will hurt their bottom line especially if it effects their customer service directly. Privately held companies probably have an easier time time will this because they don’t have the pressure of meeting public shareholders expectations each quarter which may include layoffs impacting customer servcie. Many companies do not about the long term enough.

      For starters, they can sell worthwhile products, even if they have to charge more, and not pay quite so much attention to squeezing out every last inch of profit. They can improve their image by treating their people better and their CEOs worse. And they can actually listen to customers, rather than having teleworkers working from keyword-enabled scripts.

      Yeah, thats all really going to happen.
