Thread regarding State Farm Insurance layoffs

What are the consequences on not accepting to be overworked?

As work just keeps being added and as management proves that they don’t give a rat's a-s about us being overworked and burned out, I was wondering what would happen if I just refused to do all the extra work and just kept doing my usual amount at a normal pace.
I know a guy at another group that basically did that and he faced no punishment. His manager just accepted that and shifted the work to other members of the team.
What do you think? Would I face punishment or any disciplinary action if I did that?

Be sure to meet your metrics but beyond that someone told me a long time ago that State Farm will take whatever you give them. If it's to much back off and/or learn to respectfully say no.

They don't care that we're overworked. All you can do is keep meeting the metric and seek therapy outside work for help managing stress and look for another job but a lot of companies are overworking customers. They absolutely do not care. Our family was in a crisis situation and I was told that I still had to meet my metrics and work my mandatory overtime despite my family situation. They will fire you if you don't meet the expectation that you be overworked and still meet metrics.

You’re literally asking us to justify you not doing the job your employer wants you to do.
The big boy answer is do the job, or go somewhere else.

@gas. You go there, it's ok in short run. In long run it's a regretful decision. I know many who have gone that route and its come back to bite them.

Tell them it is effecting you medically etc…..high blood pressure etc…..sc--w them….they created this operating model years ago and have gotten caught with a labor shortage…there is no dept adequately staffed to do any job effectively…..meanwhile policies grow along with net profit……and dont forget the MIP bonuses
