I am astonished that some people are NOT taking the VBO.
D&I plus the new 4 Growth plan just means they are looking for ways to RIF people in the near future.
Just about every worker over 55 is in the "What's Next" bucket of 4 Growth. You are being targeted. If you didn't take the VBO, then you are definitely placing yourself on thin ice.
Sorry to say, but @ozbo+1a2BLn8V has a point.
