• Fire on Mondays. Mondays are the best days to terminate an employee because it allows the person to start looking for a job right away.
• Make job offers on Thursdays. If candidates need time to think, this gives them one extra day. (If you give them the whole weekend, they may find another offer.)
• Give good job reviews on Fridays. It sets the mood for the weekend, which can be a reward in itself. It also prevents satisfied workers from “kicking back” for the rest of the week.
• Give poor job reviews on Mondays. This provides employees time to work out improvements during the week, instead of stewing all weekend.
