Thread regarding Bank of New York Mellon Corp. layoffs

New work space design vs social distancing

Not much opportunity to socially distance with the new and expensive floor designs at Greenwich St. Those designs so tight with no privacy on floors like 4, and 19 didn’t really encourage or support a true work environment. Now they’re probably unsafe environments with the new Covid requirements. With the return to the office has anyone heard of a plan to keep everyone there safe and healthy?

From what I hear, nothings been done. And after spending millions on a new cafeteria you might be lucky to get a grab and go lunch at best.

There are no plans for layoffs in 2020. Instead, they will be placing staff in close proximity to other staff that have already tested positive for COVID-19. This will result in reduced staffing levels and no need for severance.

"Last think they need is press around not doing this right"

Which means, of course, the brains in charge will do it wrong resulting in illness and bad press.

There is a lot to figure out before people return to the office.
No specific knowledge on those floors but they are looking at every floor, every office.
Last think they need is press around not doing this right.
