Thread regarding Change Healthcare layoffs

Performance is not a factor

I was laid off with most of my team in CA. I was actually one of the best performing managers with a 98% engagement score. Those that were laid off seemed random and a mix of my best and worst performers. Unfortunately they don’t seem to be cutting by performance. Hope everyone stays safe and hang in there.

Bumped from @friu+14AqjDeU for info.

Winston Salem office had nothing to do with less claims, if you aren't a favorite you ain't staying.

Our location acquired temp part-time furloughs, and what can they possibly learn in 90 days!? I guess in 90 days we will ALL we hear the words, "you have been CHOPPED". (insert eye roll here)

I figured out a long time ago that you should only do the bare minimum and just barely meet expectations for this company. They have shown time and time again that performance is not rewarded. This has been demonstrated with their lousy raises that don't seem to be tied to performance; performance reviews where all employees get a "meets expectations" rank because managers don't want to rock the boat by saying someone is better or worse than someone else; and their previous layoffs which were not tied to performance.

Hmm, thank you for that last assessment by former management. What I'm hearing is that layoffs are not correlated to performance so for those of us left behind, read between the lines and don't work too hard.

Lab and Physician RCM was impacted by drop in claims. Groups in Salem Winston and CA most hit b’cause of claim drops, loss of volume, focus on core rather than future initiatives, etc.

I too (was) a manager with a very high performance team but we lost about 15 percent of our group. The folks let go we’re seemingly random with some great and other so-so performers, some older, some younger some higher paid others lesser paid with not a clear pattern. It wasn’t the same list we had given upper management which was tragic to even be asked for. But it’s a business so “nothing personal.”

It does make sense because claims are down and the company needs to adjust its headcount. From what I know about planning there will be many rolling layoffs in the months ahead depending on work load for teams. Also, “shared services” won’t get spared so watch out if your in finance, legal, marketing, communications or AWS transition teams. They are planning on adjusting headcount and P/L by increasing offshoring and automation. If you had not noticed, big focus on automation before the virus hit.

I’ve enjoyed my 7 years here and am afraid for our team members getting jobs seeing what’s happening all over.

Good luck everyone...

Were you laid off or furloughed? I'm also part of the management team and was shocked when myself and a few others in management were furloughed along with people who are not high performers. Was not a mix...we provided the list of people who were underperforming and then we got furloughed as well! They should not be laying off or furloughing strong employees and overworking the remaining employees who are not skilled enough to handle the work. They are just going to sink themselves.

That's a shame. It's kind of difficult to claim we're cutting edge when we file down the blade.

They will never say it was who makes too much money.
