Cisco, when laying off employees recently, offered them a choice:
employees could take a total of six months of severance pay. Or they could apply to spend the next year working for one of several nonprofit organizations while Cisco paid them one-third of their old salaries, plus benefits, in addition to two months of severance. At the end of that year, they might be able to find another job with the company. Or they might be on their own.
Good on Cisco – self-promotion with positive results.
