Not the batting average of line managers who want to term someone - YOUR batting average - the HR pro.
Once you decide that someone needs to go and pull it all together, I'm guessing that you are in the high 90's: 98, 99%, even if you have to deal with a corporate Attorney who approves all terms.
What if I told you there was a branch of government where the batting average for terminations was 60%?
Here's a snippet from BusinessWeek:
"Moments before a single-engine plane collided with a helicopter over the Hudson in 2009, the controller who should have been advising the plane's pilot was chatting on teh phone with an ariport worker, making crude jokes about cooking up a dead cat. Nine people died. Government safety investigators concluded that the controller was distracted and partly to blame for the accident, yet two years later he still has a job. The FAA wanted to fire him, but he was ultimately reduced to a suspension, a transfer and a demotion.
That more common than you might think. More than 4 of every 10 air-traffic workers the FAA tries to fire ultimately keep their jobs or are allowed to retire to avoid being fired, according to goverment records obtained under the Freedom of Information Act. From 2009 to 2011, the FAA sought to fire 140 controllers, but in the end only 82 were forced to leave"
As you might expect, the government system and decades-old union provisions allow controllers to delay or block disciplinary action. They get to challenge proposed penalties to something called the Merit Systems Protection Board and also buy time by demanding their case be taken to an arbitrator.
Termination Approval Batting Average. Aren't you glad you don't have to deal with that?
