They shut be 2 days on customer side, 2 days from home {this is not homeoffice} and one day in the remaining office in Munich or Frankfurt. Means for people from Hamburg. Travel one day for nothing.

BT may as well close all of Asia now. Another 240 people to exit Malaysia. They don’t invest in Asia, support Asia, care about where the rest of the world is investing. Set up hubs in Hungary and India where the CX is practically non existent and sc-ape the barrel for the dregs of low income talent. Just hiring dOers not thinkers to help the business dive not thrive. All their customer CIOs will be looking for get out of Asia clauses in their contacts. BT is the new titanic. Only thing is that it hit the iceberg 5 years ago when it’s shares tanked by 80% and has been slowly in denial that it is sinking ever since. Going about business like it’s the good old days, never changing until the life rafts are already deployed and only the cattle class are below deck dancing to the violins as the ship goes done. R.I.P. British Telecom

BT is laying off employees despite prior “Promises” of standing by their people and customers during the pandemic. Employees are given notice with little regard to number of years of service given. The new way forward will be to offshore all of its newly open service management jobs to lower cost. Quite frankly the only saving grace was the US service management that were keeping customers with BT. I only continue to see this company fall further as it continues to lower its quality by not taking care of their employees and offshoring.
During a Pandemic also is “NOT” a good way to show customers and employees your in it thick & thin by having layoffs .... If you can’t take care of your own no business will believe you can take care of them.

it’s simple - Employees treated good pass that on to the customer and increase retention as well as make customers want to bring in other customers!

Get a clue!

I have just “ voluntarily been released” from BT 2 weeks ago.I was literally 5 minutes away from being officially made compulsory redundant, so I jumped rather than be pushed, I am just one of 600 that were told back in Oct 2019 to find a job or be made redundant. They wanted me to start back the day after through an agency, WOW! The whole programme of transformation and the fact that they are reducing the BT building estate to 30 nationally means they are ruthlessly and basically forcing people out of the company into a climate of high unemployment. My job now actually being done by double the number of staff than before and that are split geographically between Yorkshire and India. Beggars belief really.

Last week BT Consumer told a team of people their jobs are gone as of 1st Sept. Some redundant and some applying for their own jobs ie. larger amount of people applying for smaller number of roles. If others are unable to secure internal jobs then it’s compulsory redundancy! BT doing this despite Covid situation but worse is that loyal staff only have 2 months notice to find alternative employment. No previous warnings of jobs at risk! It’s compulsory redundancy in all but name. Their way of forcing people out! This is BT who boast of being a caring and understanding employee!!

BT announced that it’s not laying off people during the covid19 pandemic. This is a huge kick in the teeth for all those that were “part of the transformation program” that the CEO mentioned in the same breath. These people were laid off just before the FY end on 31st of March which may I add was well within the pandemic (just less than a week ago). It’s a timely message only 6 days after a huge batch of people were let go globally. Well played BT. Screwing over your people not supporting them.

When a business loses almost 50% of its market value in a quarter then there is very little choice but to cut staff. On 15Dec2019 the share price was 207.00p. It dropped to a 10 year low only 3 months later to 107.32 on the 11Mar2020. The share price was almost 500.00p 4 years earlier (22Nov2015) before the most stunning fall ever due to accounting fraud, huge loss of revenue from once very loyal MNCs and finally a toxic culture where people are let go on a whim and everything is offshored to India. One word for BT. Closing! As they sell off their global presence Spain, LATAM, France and soon to be Asia. They move backward to only chase revenue in their domestic market in the UK using cheap foreign labour. RIP BT...

It's already happening in 2020. Older (40+) employees are being packaged out to make room for the incoming employees from the graduates leadership program & continuing offshoring.

BT Global has started laying off staff in North America. I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.
