This Friday’s Five post is a video (see below) covering five ways on how to fire employees with kindness and empathy:

  1. Try not to let the firing come as a surprise.
  2. Help the employee get another job.
  3. Work with employee on what others will be told about the firing within the office.
  4. Be respectful, but accurate in documenting performance.
  5. Develop end of employment checklist to ensure consistency.

The first three points are taken from Gary Vaynerchuk’s post here.
