    "Separation program."

    Vomit-inducing term. Ugh.

    I really wish they'd just call it what it is instead of a "separation program." sigh.

    EDIT: Sam beat me to it.

    What's the problem?

    "Overall, we remain committed to producing a quality product for our customers."


    "Overall, we need to preserve our profits. There is a slight chance we may be able to do this while occasionally producing a quality product for our customers."

    Just wondering -- Do these companies hire a guy whose sole purpose is to come up with neat-sounding euphemisms for kicking employees out on their butt?

    I wish some enterprising SportsJournalists.com-er would take the time to go through the past threads, click the links of all the corporate releases and compile a "Best Of" (or better yet, "Worst Of") when it comes to this double-speak bullshit.
