Any layoff updates?

Got notification on RTO for flex employees being verified with badge swipes.
I have heard rumors about layoffs before end of 2022 even though we just heard about how “great” all the plans are doing in the last town hall. Anyone else hearing anything?
Adding to what the other person posted today. HCSC used to be valued for its superlative benefits and culture. Now, they are not only lagging in how HCSC competes with more advanced healthcare companies but benefits and culture are losing ground by the month. New hires are receiving better salaries than those who have been at the company longer. The time off policy is no longer special. In fact, it is hated by many employees. The stupidity of having to work a hybrid schedule is just that. D-mb. I thought about the benefits of being at home and how much less stressed I am when I can start my day without having to dress up for the - looks around - three other people in my work area. Why? Who am I dressing up for? The leaders who never come to my floor to see me? And why do they care more about what is on my back instead of what is in my brain? I never see customers or members. I do not see providers or vendors. Says so much about how antiquated and egotistical the senior people are. My co workers and me are less stressed not commuting. I start my day earlier because I can sit in my home and not waste two hours in traffic. I don't have to get on scary and dirty public transportation. I meet and exceed my goals. I can tell from my job who the next ceo is probably going to be, and if you think things are weird now hang on. It will really be bad before you know it. One last thing and that is that promotions in the group where I work are based on the leader's biases and not based on merit. I come here because I know some of you have the same things and misery loves company I guess. lol
What previous poster said- attrition is incredible right now. People are realizing that other companies allow for more flexibility (full time WFH for a lot of positions) and the same, if not better, benefits. HCSC also has limited advancement opportunities unless you are willing to commute, whereas other places allow management to WFH full-time, too. So now, in my department at least, promotions are based not on who is most qualified, but who is willing to commute. And we all know having a poor manager impacts attrition, too.
Are there some expectations of layoffs in some divisions? All I’m seeing right now is lots of growth and lots of hires. I’d like to know if/why some are anticipating layoffs.
I have heard no rumors. Most departments are experiencing through the roof attrition and can't attract or retain employees to save their lives.
