I have a colleague who has always worked hard but now he is suddenly working even harder, thinking that it will help him keep his job. This is what many are doing now, giving 200 percent of themselves. Are people doing this instinctively or is it really possible that some have still not realized that there is no logic when it comes to layoff? Unfortunately, the targets are mostly employees who have always been the most dedicated to their work.

I not only give my 200% but also let supervisors/ managers use me as they wish. Believe me it’s only 5 minutes of pain except for one guy who takes an hour . This ensures a permanent spot for me on any team/BU I work for. Please follow my development plan it’s the best.
200% eh? Well that does explain the mercilous efforts around monitoring for non-approved words, topics and thread comments for immeditate removal here.
I wonder how many work in that oversight role at CCOP? two, four or more employees? Do they work in shifts or perform daily zoom call handoffs to maintain approved righthink speech here?
When the HR sharks come to get you it is still better to think I tried my hardest and I only have COP and economics to blame.
Sure the management should be running a peach harvest in Louisiana or noodling catfish in the Red River for beer money but they have somehow become the obstacle that stands between your success and COP's success. They are in place through the process of un-natural selection and have their diamond hands on your ba--s.
Anyone serious about their job should be showering in the locker room amd sleeping on a cot in their office.
Or do the opposite if you want an EOI?
Layoffs hit people who have independent thought processes and dare to question “leadership”. Working hard doesn’t matter. Kissing azz and agreeing with managers or at least “not rocking the boat” matter. If you are somewhat competent and never speak up, you might be ok. If you ask questions or challenge anyone in your pay grade or above, start packing. Just wait till rounds 2, e, and 4. Feb. was only round 1.
