Thread regarding Refinitiv layoffs

What does the LSEG deal mean for all those that signed the pledge ?

I am guessing there will be a new pledge ?

You were right but it's an environmental pledge. Probably a good way to deflect the corny Refinitiv loyalty pledge that we had to make post take over and restructuring.
Thank goodness the Refinitiv Rap guy is gone from Singapore so we do t have another one of those but I think his boss is still there who promoted the rap and coaxed him to do it.... Embarrassing!

Do you guys mean this Refinitiv Rap along with the Pledge we had to read at the Town Hall in Singapore and Hong Kong?
As published in the FT.
The rebranding of Thomson Reuters’ financial and risk businesses to Refinitiv has been widely lampooned, the FT reported.
But even as newly minted Refinitiv employees gird for a stinging round of cost cuts after its leveraged buyout by Blackstone, the company has found one fan pledging allegiance to the new corporate brand.
A rap written by [email protected]#$ L*&^, a Refinitiv employee based in Asia, has been forwarded to the company’s thousands of employees and posted on its internal website, according to an email seen by the FT, with a version of the song appearing online.
The rap, partly a morale booster for the indebted group’s ranks, tells so-called “Refinitivees” to spread “them wings” and take to the sky, bring the heat “every day till we die” and to change “tha game and we’ll do it with a bang”.
Some other choice lyrics rhapsodise about Refinitiv’s technological prowess - and new colour scheme:
"It’s like a Fintech and a Spaceship got together and mated
TR in our hearts as we progress anew
Put that orange in the background and replace it with blue"
The FT said the rap is a departure for a company known for its staid financial products, which include the Eikon financial data terminal that connects brokers and traders - and also gets a starring role:
"The Market’s locked down, and we got the key
And if you’re wondering how we’ll go down in history?
We got a product called “Eikon,” - enough said, G"

New Pledge for the earnest. Say the pledge at the town hall or you'll be on notice. This also would have meant a new Rap but that guy got pumped in Singapore yesterday... Welcome to the start of the next round of restructuring... Good luck everyone!

A new Pledge and probably a new Rap from Singapore too!
Slightly embarrassing to say the least.
