Thread regarding Optum layoffs

Wicks Weekly Canceled

Anyone else notice that Wicks Weekly is canceled for the rest of June? Wonder if he’s avoiding questions or comments about the massive layoffs happening? Or is it just a coincidence?

Between Wick’s weekly and Dave’s Daily I feel like I’m getting spammed anyway.

they probably calculated the loss of productivity as people were not just listening in while working but actually clocking the meeting time as billable since some people have to pad their hours while others can not ever get it all done.

Those questions about layoffs never get addressed. He will never answer them because he doesn’t have to. He only takes carefully vetted questions talking about innovation and compassion. He doesn’t want to hear peons squawking. He is above that. Besides “just be happy you have a job” is the new mission statement for employees.

What more is there for Dave to say? L.E.G.O. is let go of your jobs. While I respect Norman Wright, he is an exception to who is preferred and promoted at UHG and who is laid-off. UGH has a glass-ceiling in their business like the rest of the tech industry. Minorities are tokens at best.

Umm now right at the end of the work day we all get the invite for early Monday morning meeting. “Important”. Most of us have logged off for the day so I’ll be left to ponder our fate all weekend !

I though it was rescheduled for Monday’s. Are they removing some from the disto?

Haha, probably avoiding questions. Amazing how he talks. He claims to talk about a positive culture, but we know what's been happening since the beginning of the year, even before Covid-19. Layoffs are an integral part of this organization's strategic landscape.

I thought he, Andrew Witty, Mitch Morris etc were clear that there would be no Covid-19 related layoffs? Sigh...
