PIP without any cause on pregnant

Can you believe they have started issuing PIP without prior adverse performance discussion on pregnant women. No wonder they will face significant challenge and erosion of brand equity.

Forced termination, entire division mandatory PIPs, and 2022 layoffs estimate specultions are bad enough. Not to mention a succession plan where employees selected have no talent or leadership. Of the 42 executive profiles posted on the web site, only 3 have been career employees! Clearly, SMART goals and performance reviews are not developing employees.

But what really makes me mad is office supplies - I'm expected to bring my own!

I can relate....I'm 59 and been at the same job at Cat for 13 years and my job is going away before the end of the year. They want younger people that have lot's of ambition and gung ho, wear them down over the years until they realize they aren't allowed to go up the ladder of success like the selected few and they turn into employees like me that are now considered lepers to the company's bottom line.

If you're over 45 you will just get pushed out via "reorganization." Previous performance be damned.

I can’t help but think, could there not be a different way to do it rather than a Performance Improvement Plan?

As my old boss used to say, "if you weren't my son, I'd fire you!!"
I was told by my new boss that I have no talent or leadership.
That's the power of a well executed succession plan.
