Is it possible to ask your manager to be part of WFR successfully? I’d almost rather get hit by a bus than work here anymore and would prefer a break before my next job.

If your work is pretty much anonymous and a client would not even notice you gone then I'd say try that but if you are seen as a key resource with a client and they have already raised concern of other DXCers who are fleeing then I don't see why a manager would give themselves a headache by proposing WFR for you.
I think if you are serious about leaving, then it is worth contacting HR directly. Sometimes, managers have a conflict, if they are directly involved with project delivery or hitting KPIs and are less motivated than HR in reducing headcount. It is an odd scenario to be in, but I had to wait for my manager to leave before my VR was accepted at which point my new "manager" had absolutely no idea what i did or what I was working on.
Quit, RUN as fast as you can. A real company that cares about its employees gives them a review and a pay increase at the same time. They say a later date, but when the new board members got there 2,800 shares of stock for FREE and we get ZERO.
Managers will be working with you to schedule a one–on–one Year–End review conversation between now and Friday, May 14. P
A discussion regarding Incentive Compensation Plans (ICP) and merit will take place at a later date so stay tuned for more information.
You could reach out to HR and tell them you are interested
2 options: don't do your time sheet or ghost the company
or you could just step in front of a bus ...
If you want to quit, then quit already !
As someone who did that, I'll wish you luck. I was being VR (Voluntary Redundancy), and planning a nice summer off. Just as I was about to send by 'goodbye' e–mail, my manager phoned me up and said "we've cancelled your VR, you're staying".
Needless to say, I left anyway. Sadly I didn't have my 3 month break over the summer as I didn't get the VR payout.
as a ex dxc manager I would say there is an option but no guarantee. DXC does not officially have voluntary redundancy but as there are always wfr targets to be met as a manager it helped that I knew who would want to go and who wanted to stay. Where possible I always tried to exit those that put their hands up.
Ultimately it will depend on what type of manager you have. I would recommend you discreetly let them know you wishes, can't do any harm as you want to go asap anyway.
