There have been some interesting approaches taken to managing talent this week.  Firstly BA announced that they wanted staff to perform up to 1 months work for free.  The plan was designed to avoid redundancies whilst helping the company weather the financial storm.  It predictably created a lot of controversy as clearly ceo Willie Walsh can afford such an action a lot more easily than some of his lower paid staff.

Then this morning BT announced that they will be loaning out staff to competitors for a short period to help reduce their wage bill whilst retaining staff over the longer term.

Certainly interesting to see how companies are dealing with this crisis.
