people pill noun

where the management of a company threatens to resign in the event of a takeover. A people pill defence can be a useful strategy to help fight off a hostile takeover if they are an especially good team and losing them could harm the company
The threatened people pill, if enacted, would make the takeover more difficult and expensive for the acquiring company as it would need to replace the entire management.
