Some United employees going back into the office mid-end of June after HR working so hard to figure out ways to force employees to be back in. Haven’t seen any other people that I know work in different companies go in the office earlier than us. With all the restrictions and guideline, they’re literally putting us in the office just because they don’t trust people working from home. Forcing people back in the office and not even giving an option to go back is ridiculous. Even if you are high risk, you will feel pressured to go in if all your upper management is back in the office. Good job United for creating unsafe, bureaucratic working environment. At time like this, if work can be done at home theres literally no reason to have people back especially if you can even have conference, face to face interactions and meetings.

I read about that key card story on the aetna layoff section.
It is hilarious about how someone sneezed on it or something and used it. Then someone came by and swiped a card and rubbed it on the hand while putting it away.
I agree those things have plenty of germs on it.
Go read the comment on the aetna layoff page about the key card security and how it contains germs. It is hilarious. It was posted recently.
Unless you are in a remote village in alaska where people drop off food in a hazmat suit, how are you being forced to come in without having a vaccine yet.
Looks like a good productive weekend of work, regardless of the trolls on these threads. Please continue to move forward, it’s the right thing to do. Don’t forget to get those surveys completed and be honest. I will be out a few more days on much needed PTO. Please continue the great work and be thankful you here.
Don't respond to the trolls who are pro going back in the office or pretend to act like managers. I highly doubt managers go through these forums. These pro UHC people are either trolls or sheep's who kiss butt or informants to management in order to be in better standing.
@1oua+15kuqlTl Then go do your job instead of lurking around here like a troll. If you’re so confident and have no complaints, you shouldnt be on this site with people who have job concerns And complaints. Go ahead and get your a– into the office and work instead of looking for posts on this site to troll.
Amen to the last post! I’m so sick of all the cry baby’s on this site. Get off your fat a$$ and start doing you job and stop complaining. If you don’t like it find another job. It’s really that simple
Then simply look for a new job if you are concerned. Again the moving people at home was temporary. They are moving people back in states where they allowed to. Other companies are doing the same. If you think it is risky voice your concerns but ultimately it is up to you. Whining about it on here does nothing here except to vent. But when your called you will still be going in I suspect.
@jne+15kuqlTl WebEx has the same effectiveness as a conference and right now it is better due to social distancing do even if you were in office you would still be using WebEx. It is UHC responsibility to keep employees safe and by speeding up the return to office is extremely risky to high risk people and people who live with high risk people. Think about it. If you or someone you live with is high risk UHC will see that as a liability and find ways to get rid of you. The company will adhere to laws but will use loop holes to reach their objective. They have proven countless times that they are unethical. RIF in small increments to avoid WARN, keeping a few elderly employees to avoid age discrimination, forcing people to quit with harassment and inaccurate annual reviews, wrongful denial on claims and intentional delays on claims, outsourcing jobs to overseas that now manage US patients claims. I am sure there is many more. UHC has been sued many times, yet they still try to get away with unethical actions, they view it as the risk is worth the reward. Your opinion is your opinion, but stop keeping a company sheep and realize real lives are at stake. Mine, my family, my friends, my co workers...some are high risk and safety should be prioritized above all. I respect if what you posted if your opinion, but if the purpose was to score points with UHC I'm afriad they will not see it on these forums.
My position was just sent off shore so I guess I don’t have to worry about going back to the office.
@ jne+15kuqlTl not true! They didnt say your coworkers and managers might not be in same phase as you might be in, you still cannot have conference and will be using webex, you probably have to wait in line to go to the bathroom, etc. if anything it ruins your productivity
Isn't it obvious. United knows there are ppl who will quit due to returning to the building. United is laying off, offering voluntary LOA, harassing employees, and become more strict on rules. United wants people gone...if you quit or pass away from Covid-19 you helped United in reducing overhead.
Covid-19 is still going strong. We should be working from home until phase 4 at least. Being in the office is not more productive, UHC has monitoring systems in place to gauge productivity so if someone was slacking off it is easily identifiable. I'll be damned if there is a second outbreak and either I or someone I know gets infected for working for a company that has no care in the world for their employees and patients. Going back mid to end June is irresponsible, there is no benefit in rushing return. People with poor work quality will still have poor work quality regardless if they are in the office or at home. If UHC wants quality work with high productivity, they need to change the culture and keep employees and managers who genuinely have good work ethics. The environment as to where you work from does not determine a bad employee suddenly become a quality worker.
Did you think it was going to last forever? Its all about productivity and what is deemed best for communication, collaboration between departments and lines of business. There are plenty of Telecommute opportunities if you want to transfer. People are forgetting all the preventative measures were temporary and every company can make their decisions about bringing employees back into the office.
