Dear Manager, either you weren't invited to the Manager meetings or you were distracted. The next major lawsuit Humana will be facing will be addressing these meetings in particular including testimony and evidence from Managers that attended them. Remember this, above all else...and I teach my children this...if anyone tells you not to say anything, it is because they are doing something wrong. Get yourself to a place of safety then scream from the mountaintops. Just saying. Time will tell a story. Stay tuned.....
Ps...I expect next comment to be that I am crazy or otherwise deficient based on my statement. What if I'm not?
For those of us living in the real world, we all know that US health insurance is a big racket. If you disagree with this perception, inquire with the Humana attorneys paid to defend Humana against any number of illegal wrong doings. The list is vast. Or contact a health insurance lobbyist for a reality check. The health insurance industry is the second largest political lobby in the country - topped only by that other 'darling diva corporation' - Big Pharma. Presumably, they are lobbying with integrity not dollars
@11Uww4pN-5gwo That's very insulting. My integrity has never been questioned. My team have always been treated with due respect and I continue to be in contact with a large number of them even after they have left Humana. Your hateful comments speak more about you than your bitter, generalized and cheap shots say about me. I hope you reflect on your words and consider just how spiteful and wrong they are. Despite what you may think we try to do a good job and be respectful to all. Some times, people like you make that very difficult.
maybe its the health insurance system that's warped.
right you are Humana manager. Of course, we know that you are a pillar of moral integrity and would never callously bounce anyone out the door in order to maintain your own position or to achieve company set compliance standards. Healthcare insurance, especially medicare advantage is a dog eat dog competitive business
@11Uww4pN-4xog You're wrong. Managers get an incentive plan just like everyone else and it's based on company performance. There is no incentive financially or otherwise to reduce costs. You have a very warped idea of what managers at Humana can and can't do.
so very correct. Put in proper perspective, 'the lay off' process is never ending and much larger than numbers Humana reports. Managers are given incentives to rid themselves of undesirable team members. Any managers out there care to input on those they have terminated for 'critical error' ?? now is the time to get it off your chest............. What say you Humana managers??
No mention of those that were LET GO for a keyboard error or simple error. Once you get put on corrective action they look for anything to get you out. Managers have people's lives in their hands and they can fabricate things.
Offer voluntary riffs or early retirement
article is nov 6th 2019// from Louisville Business First. They have been downsizing US staff ever since Aetna deal went bust// TPP went through the shredder // ACA just not going their way.... plus looming possibility of a new medicare for all system being introduced
Wait.... I thought it was just over 800 laid off... now it was 2000? Where can I read this article or watch this interview, please. Ty
Bad enough they eliminate our positions, but then don’t treat us all the same. Some are able to have this time off to focus on themselves and family - make decisions that have a huge impact on their lives, while others are still working and forced to use PTO to do the same. What is up with that? And no, it is not because there was no work for them to do.
@11Uww4pN-wwr "impacted by the redeployments or by the layoffs" the key word being OR
I listened to that meeting as well. I was confused because we were told that 2% of the employees were affected and that it was approximately 832 employees, yet in that meeting it was said that 2,000 employees were impacted. I am wondering if more employees will be impacted in the first quarter of 2020.
yeah right............. could have been him
