After many years of service I get a call from someone I do not know telling me that my role will be ‘offshored’ thus making my role redundant. Well good luck in ‘offshoring’ what I do. As for the situation. Well is poor form.

Get resume aligned. Be cautious of copying Confidential or personal data... but take everything you can, storage is cheap, you may need it somewhere else or maybe you can sell it
No big deals in APAC either but WFRs don't support the message to the market that DXC has turned around and is growing. Agree that management must be using a different set of figures to the ones we're looking at. Doesn't add up.
Well no big deals in AMS and EMEA - but pretty high prized resources. The math doesn't work out - wake up and smell the coffee.
Keep it to yourself, (Don't give them a chance to let you go early - if the people manager didn't want to tell you yet.) Align Personal finances accordingly. Get resume aligned. Be cautious of copying Confidential or personal data. Take all training and retain personal contacts as possible. Be classy. And enjoy the next adventure.
Hmm strange. No wfrs in the americas was the scenario for a while. I guess things changed.
Happened to me in first year of DXC - my role was offshored from Western country US to an Indian Resource - thank you Mikey for WFR whole lot of Western resources for cheaper
Asian equivalents - where in most areas they are sadly lacking
And as I was KO unfairly - did the bear minimum in my knowledge transfer; a truly hateful country which it seems hasn't improved under Mr Shouty reign.
If they are not your people manager, if you don't know who they are then contact either or both HR and your people manager to find out if your lucky enough to get WFR and severance pay.
Also you can't be redundant if they are offshoring your job!
Ignore it as they are not your people managet
