Thread regarding ADP layoffs

To all the wonderful people being let go

Every single month for the last few years at ADP, I have gone to E-mail or to contact someone via Skype/WebEx and every month a wonderful person is gone/laid off. It’s never ending and sickening.
To the unlucky, extremely knowledgeable, smart, tenured, and talented folks being let go, please know your coworkers will miss you and will be thinking about you.
Your absence will hit them very hard and you will not be forgotten.
I know being laid off is extremely painful, scary, and shocking.
if you are up to it, please reach out to the people you work with regularly before your last day and provide contact info. Maybe they’ll hear of an opportunity.
ADP may not have appreciated you, but there are companies who want ex-ADPers. You are not alone and have a lot of value. Your skills are transferable even if it’s to a company with different software. Take care!!

Translation: "To all those wonderful people laying off and hurting so many others... you ARE loved (as long as you don't hurt me)! Those laid off should contact me because I'm too busy with my life to care about anyone else's (as long as I am not laid off or hurt)."

The original post may be one of the most insincere and disingenuous posts I have ever read! Regardless of intention, it comes across very very self centered and hurtful towards those whose families have been devastated and are in real pain because of the greedy Hitler-like viewpoints of this executive team. Truth is you have no idea how badly this has hurt many and even k–led some people. Do your homework and don't be such an @$$ in life.

I guess the original poster of this thread stopped caring about those hurt by layoffs and corporate CEO greed. LOL, like they ever did to start with! They just went silent!

@7vvq+16fKJCdl - I hear you loud and clear. And I do see your point. Well made. It is pretty bad those of us still employed have been so callous and inward focused. Sincerely we need to do the right thing and not expect hose hurt to reach out.

People are pulled in and let go, many without the opportunity to pack their own desk. It is difficult to reach out when you are told, today is your last day. Another point is many times the layoffs are not even announced or the staff told about the impact. I found out about layoffs many days after it happened.

And you are so "heartfelt" calling everyone a bitter bunch. Pretty much as expected - a hypocrite!

Clearly, your life has not been shattered to the point where you not just lost a job but have been in the hospital numerous times hanging on for dear life as a result of the actions from this selfish Cuban CEO that finds he must hurt Americans to benefit himself. And in the middle of a pandemic, try finding any meaningful work. Call me bitter? Expect me to reach out to others to make them feel better I got shafted after twenty years? So tell me, how can I make this easy for you?

I'm shocked at the responses to the original post. It seems heartfelt and specifically asks that they reach out prior to leaving since most associates that remain are unaware of the terminations until after they've occurred. Give that person a break. Seemed to me to be a great post with a lot of empathy. You all are a bitter bunch!

I guess the original poster of this thread must have realized just how bad the post struck a nerve as there has not been any follow up. Typical. People just want to feel good in their own mind for not supporting others or even worse, stabbing others in the back in order for them to try to get ahead or perceived up the ladder as a cheerleader for ADP's actions on folks they have targeted in EEO violative actions. All in an effort to reduce costs and expenses so the CEO can make a few more million per year. Lives are in shambles. Hope that Karma comes to visit you real soon.

To the original poster @OP+16fKJCdl - I'm speechless you expect that laid off employees try to ease your guilt for not standing up for them!

It's like saying: "I see you just got shot and are laying on the ground bleeding out, but could you run to the store for me cause I would like some ice cream."

Ok, maybe that is a bit much, but the point is the same. You want me to make it easy on you to "feel better" that I got laid off for having too much experience and paid (by ADP) accordingly thru the years for that experience and benefit to ADP. Nevermind, the impact to me, my family, or my future. You know how that comes across? If you want to really reach out to someone hurt like this, then YOU make an effort. If you don't want to make that effort, that is on you and confirms you really don't care anymore than Carlos or Dermot Obrien. But don't expect those hurt to spoon feed your feelings when they just got stabbed in the back.

Ah, I get it. By "belittled" you meant laid off. Yes, I agree.

@3nzl+16fKJCdl ... "negatively impacted?" I'm hanging on for dear life right now (not joking). Sorry if I haven't gotten around to sending everyone with jobs at ADP contact info. You have no idea.

Post ID: @4iho+16fKJCdl

@3nzl+16fKJCdl - you think you are the only person with children or parents or have issues. I can with almost 100% certainty guarantee you I have way more on my plate than you, even if you have a ton. Oh and did you stop to think still have income? Oh, and I am suppose to reach out to you so you can feel good? Puh-leeze! How do you think the employment landscape is for laid off folks during this COVID situation? Between these comments and the lame moderators of this site continuing to hurt folks posting their situations about ADP it is all a bit selfish don't you think? How can I make my lay off easy for you? Maybe you need to be considerate to someone besides yourself. Maybe the CEO should too!

Hang on there poster id @3pmc+16fKJCdl Depending on a person's personal situation with this pandemic and working from home we may not even be aware of who got let go and who didn't!! It's not that I don't care, I might just literally not know! And with kids and parents to take care of, when would I find the time to look up phone numbers?! Also, are you serious?!?! CALL HR?!?! I would love to hear from and help out anyone I worked with previously who has been negatively impacted, but I'm dealing with a lot at home and having someone reach out to let me know they need help would be a great thing. I'm so so sorry for people who have lost their jobs, it is heartbreaking.

"Who is belittled?" - really? Did you get laid off due to your age and experience (and higher compensation)?

Post ID: @3wgw+16fKJCdl

Ha! If saying "we don't have a phone number or email" makes you feel more justified in not supporting or caring about those laid off, then that is on you. I would bet everything I have that if you got a large sum of money if you could find someone you used to work with, you would find a way. Truth is, you may feel anxious, because someone you know who was laid off for age or experience in favor of someone cheap and young, and you really are perhaps nervous about what ADP has in store for everyone else. But don't say you "don't have a phone number". Got to HR and get one. Use a phone book. Ask around. I can say there are dozens off ways you could attempt it... but don't make those already belittled feel even worse because you say you "don't have a phone number." That is you just justifying your own feeling of guilt.

To the person who asked why are we not reaching out to the people who have been let go, I agree it’s a 2 way street. However, it’s hard to reach out without a personal phone number or personal email available. That was the point of the post. Not everyone participates in social media. If we don’t know someone is being laid off and social media contact is not an option, we probably don’t have a way to reach out to our wonderful ex-coworkers.

Hmm, that seems sincere; however, last time I checked phones work 2 ways! Why are those still there that are so concerned reaching out to those hurt so badly by this horrific policy and id–tic plan from the CEO and board?
