Dennis is a member of the management team of a company that, until recently, was extremely profitable. As a result of a continuing recession, however, there has been a significant drop in profits, and the management team is considering layoffs. Dennis will soon be attending a meeting of the management team to decide how many employees to retain. This case examines the tradeoffs between viewing employees as inputs versus assets in the context of a recession. It works well in finance and economics syllabi.
