One of the frustrating realities of the work force is that the people at the top often don't know what they're doing. This explains why so many companies implement rules and practices that not only make things harder on their employees and customers, but are bad for business.
In a popular Reddit thread, someone asked: "What are some of the worst business practices you’ve seen?"
1.) From KourteousKrome:
Hostility towards raises. Rewarding your existing employees is almost always cheaper than hiring new. Ive had a manager that scoffed at a single 3% raise for someone who had no raise for 5 years. Good luck hiring a new person with that experience and for less money. There’s a reason why job hopping gets you more money, and it’s not because hiring new is cheaper.
