While we all know the next 12 months will bring us massive movement of the whole of claims to India there must remain a sizeable footprint of US based employees in all departments. This is for home base continuity and corporate tax breaks. You know, the things that pad Tom and Glenn's slimy pockets. But as I learned as working within management at this company the ideal of "lift and shift" is very real and will soon be implemented in mass.
Lift and shift is knowingly overhiring in one area mainly with brand new employees to Allstate, waiting 12 months or so for turnover to do its thing, and then forcefully and as a condition of employment moving employees to totally different areas and in often much less desirable jobs or forcefully combining jobs into one new role thus devaluing the position. Refusing to move to this new role = voluntary refusal if work with no severance and no or harder to get unemployment. You think Allstate baits and switches their customers like crazy? Look how they do the same things to employees.
