Thread regarding Optum layoffs

optum payment INTEGRITY laying off at least 100 US Employees..

SAM EDIT dept. Was transferred from UHC to OPTUM in January 2020. We (supervisor level) were told on 7/29/20 more than 100+ staff will be reduced in the next 2 months. All U.S. based employees.. Everything going offshore.. Ireland and India are safe. U.S. staff will have assistance with being reallocated. This wasn't mentioned at the town hall on 7.30.20. Just told to supervisors. This after they made ALL SAM EDIT U.S. staff telecommute (before Covid).

Never trust a US corporation. Shysters, charlatans, and hustlers galore.

First of all, when you are wfh you are easier to let go without drama. Second of all, just bc they have it in their contract doesn’t mean anyone actually plans to abide by it. There are loopholes galore

Everything can’t go offshore. Some states have it in their contract that auditing must be done onshore.

SAM Edit was merged with PIPPA and the current director is from PIPPA so is it SAM that is going away? I was worried about this

What is the SAM Edit Dept? Also. I can tell you that there's a huge push to automate all mundane clerical steps in any role. Optum is having these automation "robots" built out of Ireland. If your role is fully clerical and hands on, you are on the chopping block. I'll just be a matter of time.

Have you heard this just for the SAM edit team? Or does this also include PIPPA that was supposed to merge with SAM?
