Is there anyone else thinking about or is planning to leave because of the RTO plan? I honestly don’t have it in me to do that and I have started looking into other companies with permanent WFH positions. It makes me sad because I like working for Sysco, but I refuse to go back into the office.

Nov 1 is return to office at Corporate and other locations. However, if you are not fully vaccinated your access badge will be turned off and you will not be allowed to enter the workplace
August 16 return to office date regardless of where they are located in the country.
Kevin and the other vindictive management team do not care, unless it is one of their kiss ups or favorites that leave. In that case, they will scramble to create a new job position and increase in pay to entice you to stay. Kevin could care less. He feels that if you leave, they have no problem replacing you. Like everyone previously stated, get out while you can. I think with the Delta Variant rearing it’s ugly head and with food shortages world wide, things are not looking good. To the loyal and faithful Sysco employees, continue to stay and I hope you made the right decision for you and your family. To those who see the handwriting on the wall, the best of luck to you in your search. There are companies out here that care about having a great employee morale.
I want to know how many are actually leaving because they don't want to come back. I want to know if it's enough to make Kevin notice. We'll probably never know, that info is always kept hush. We get the generic "we're still shipping groceries "
Know your worth. Sysco is not the end all, be all. Network and get out!!!!
I applaud those of you that have enough sense to leave Sysco. This company is not the same. Management is cut throat and evil especially in Trade Management and National Sales. Network as much as you can. There are better work opportunities that have the perk of working remote 100%. Management will use you and when they feel that someone younger can do the job, you will hear the script informing you your position has been eliminated. If management really likes you and you fit the cookie cutter mold, they will create a position with a new title with a pay increase.
I have made it my goal to leave them as soon as I can. They sent out surveys only to help them prepare their answers for when we asked if we could work from home, not because they actually cared and were going to take our feelings or suggestions into consideration. I'm excited to leave them actually, the last year and a half has showed me how much life I'm missing sitting in an office chair and filling out CMP's that NO ONE, not even management, cares about! Going back will feel like jail.
Tooooons of people are or are trying to. And they are GOOD people who know their worth. We had a 21 year employee leave because she refused to go back. I start my new job tomorrow making more money and better benefits too so it was a no brainer. We have AE's leaving to work for brokers or other companies that are fully WFH too. It's insane.
I believe many people feel the same way that you do including me. Most are privately seeking remote opportunities and will use vacation time to see if it is a good fit and then submit their resignation notice. Sysco is and has always been a cut throat working environment. Do not share any plans to seek employment elsewhere with anyone. The kiss ups will share information with your management time and they will dig up opportunities to get rid of you.
