Thread regarding SAS Institute layoffs

SAS Lays off Childcare Staff

The Childcare Staff this week learned they are being let go and the Childcare facilities being turned over to Bright Horizons to manage. The current childcare staff have been given the option to transition to the new company but with a significant change to salary and benefits. They will no longer be considered SAS employees and no longer have the onsite benefits provided to SAS employees. Sad that SAS has decided to make this change. The childcare facilities have been a part of SAS since the 1980s. May of the staff have spent their entire careers there and have provided an environment of true care for the children of SAS employees. Thought SAS cared more for their employees. Especially ones who have been loyal to the company for decades. But this is a signal of more changes to come to for a once wonderful company.

SAS has had their head in the sand for years! Now the sh!t has hit the fan. I was forced into retirement early this year. Not my choice but I had no other options. To all employees: keep your eyes open: SAS runs on lies and deceit and HR is a party to it. You can be a top performer one day and torn apart the next.

The daycare staff were some of the hardest working and lowest paid employees at SAS. In that role there is no room to not put in a full days work every single day. Think of all the folks that simply do little to no work most days at SAS.

Its shame but I do think the decision was bigger than simply salary cuts.

Wait...I thought SAS never had layoffs?

Covid couldn't be a reason for the layoffs, since the HMFIC his-self wrote some article stating that SAS wouldn't layoff "due to Covid". That guy would never lie or spin the truth. Never!

What about the facilities staff? Are they still paying full benefits for people to landscape the campus?

That seems like a no-brainer to outsource.

I predict the staff of Cafes F and T will be next to be outsourced, unless they already have. Others potentially at risk: healthcare and RFC.

I’m sure the liability insurance required of a daycare was the biggest cost savings. The staffing costs were in all likelihood not the biggest factor in the decision.
