RTO Targets

Can anyone tell me why I’m being targeted to return to office, but a coworker that does the same exact job as me, AND lives in a city with a Fiserv office, is still considered remote? I feel like I’m being discriminated against, since there is no consistency in who has to return and who doesn’t.

I heard there is a bit of an "anti-Frank" movement growing among managers at some of the locations. It will be interesting to see what becomes of it. Frank will no doubt just laugh like a madman as he lays off all the managers and lets the company violently implode, just so he can feel "in control".

It’s more a sign that people controlling the spreadsheet have no idea of the people represented, what they do or the value they add

"If you're being targeted for "RTO" and your coworker is not, it's none of your business."

I agree with the overall sentiment here. You can't let things get to you. But that being said, the lack of transparency and the arbitrary nature of the RTO selection frustrates people and destroys morale. More than that, it's not a great way to treat human beings, even outside of a corporate context.

The rationale of company decisions should be everyone's business. It's a publicly traded company, and the same amount of integrity and transparency demanded of the employees should be, in turn, demanded of the company.

But yeah - shoulda, woulda, coulda. I get it.

A little friendly advice: stop comparing yourself to others, and for God's sake, don't spin your wheels trying to figure out the logic of the C-suite at this company. Picture a clown car and a leaky gas tank. If you're being targeted for "RTO" and your coworker is not, it's none of your business. But, you're also okay in the grand scheme of things. Because like most, you're probably unhappy overall and have been thinking of leaving for some time. So, get your resume' in order and start applying for jobs. It's a job seeker's market for sure. If you love your current role with Fiserv, then control what you can day to day AND STILL GET YOUR RESUME' OUT THERE.

It's the spreadsheet, where you are on the next phase of the elimination process is the big question. Anyone and everyone who works from home and is not currently slated to be in an office has a target on their backs. You will be approached and you may or may not like the options presented to you, but you will have to make a life changing decision in 10 days or less. That seems fair right? This is FB's way of eliminating positions that work remote, re-hiring them in NJ to fill 2K seats, that's the bottom line. Employee 1st ya know.

The 'obvious' answer is that you are probably vaccinated against Covid-19 whereas your co-worker may not be. But, as we all know, there is never an 'obvious' answer at Fiserv.

Do you expect functioning communication from this company? Your coworker is likely supposed to be told to go to an office but the management chain didn't get the message to your coworker. In my location I've heard people were required to return to the office but they've only been given a couple days warning.

They are not targeting you. They don't care about you at all.

They are claiming if you are not vaccinated, you do not have to return to the office. Not sure how long that will last.

I'm not sure the reply in this thread makes sense. There are hundreds, if not thousands that are currently remote workers, including myself, that are being eliminated if they do not relocate.

It's a lot easier to lay people off once they are in office. Less hassle with paperwork and company property.
