In the first decade of the twentieth century two German chemists, Fritz Haber and Carl Bosch, invented fertilizer — the nitrogen compound which ushered in modern agriculture and saved the world from potential starvation.

In the hundred years since companies began manufacturing fertilizer a...

The cofounder of a food packaging startup acquired by SoftBank-backed Zume is suing, alleging he was misled about Zume's financial health and never got millions in promised payouts

John Lilley, a cofounder of Pivot Packaging, filed a lawsuit against Zume, the troubled robotics startup backed by SoftBank, on April 16. The suit, filed in San Francisco Superior Court, alleges that Zume committed fraud by misrepresenting its financials during the acquisition process and didn't pay Pivot Packaging founders according to the original deal.

Findera Tries a Pivot Amid a Whirlwind Over Data Privacy Rules

Early last year, the San Francisco startup Yozio decided it would have to scuttle its core mission, despite having attracted marquee customers including Pinterest and Airbnb within only a few years.The problem was, there turned out to be too few such websites with the size and sophistication to use Yozio’s app-optimization tools to advantage, and to create a viable market for the startup, says Christophe Daligault, who was an early Yozio investor. What’s more, tech giants Google and Apple had s...

Amazon Has a Peer Jury Feature In Their PIP Program Called "Pivot"...

Back when I was working for companies that were primarily non-union but routinely had some organizing "bubble-ups", a mentor of mine had the following saying related to making changes to employment practices that felt similar to a union: "We can give them OUR union or let them choose THEIR union" The point - and it's a significant one - was that corporations have built employment practices that limit risk, organizing and representation by borrowing the practices from unions. Need an example?  H...

Amazon's program for underperforming employees includes a courtroom-style videoconference with a jury of peers — and while experts agree it's innovative, they're split on whether it works

Amazon introduced its "Pivot" program for underperforming employees last year. Now, some employees are resentful that the program process is unfair. Workplace experts say it's concerning that the peer jury that evaluates underperforming employees isn't necessarily familiar with the employees' work — or experienced in hiring and firing. One workplace expert said the program is beneficial because it gives employees more of a chance to improve than if they were simply let go. Last year, Amazon ...

Amazon Workers Facing Firing Can Appeal To a Jury of Their Co-Workers

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Bloomberg: Jane was working in Amazon's Seattle headquarters when she was asked to a meeting with her manager and a human resources representative. They gave her a document outlining concerns about her work performance and spelled out three choices. She could quit and receive severance pay, spend the next several weeks trying to keep her job by meeting certain performance goals, or square off with her manager in a videoconference version of the Thunderdom...

18 months after being deployed, Amazon's program for underperforming employees may be doing more harm than good (AMZN)

Amazon implemented a program early last year for employees at risk of being fired, but the process is causing some resentment among employees, according to Bloomberg's Spencer Soper. The most controversial part of the program, the option for a head-to-head video confrontation between the employee and his or her boss in front of a jury of peers, is seen as unfair. As a whole, the program was intended to provide transparency and guidance to employees, but 18 months later employees apparently don...
