lots of talk in the news lately about "quiet quitting"...what we are seeing at hcsc is a quiet layoff. we are losing people at a rate I have never seen before due to lack of remote work options and/or flexible schedules and yet the ceo made it very clear in his town hall that he intends to get people back into the office more often...driving our best employees to competitors who offer remote work and flexible schedules, most of them pay better and offer better benefits too. when the subject of retention comes up they ignore the reasons why people are actually leaving. the only explanation I can think of is that they want people to quit.

Rulers need to see their underlings to feel important...simple as that
The company is already hugely more diverse than other places I have worked, to be honest. But the remote work thing is a joke. They want butts in seats because insecure people in charge need it. If they were confident in what they do and who they are they would trust their employees to do their work from anywhere. They do not trust. They already spy on ppl through the software on laptops. Common practice. What is irritating is that some departments get away with ignoring the hybrid policies. We have to do it in my group but there are different groups near us who are hardly ever at the office. What a crock of p-o.
I think you give them too much credit. I think they are just too egotistical to realize that their policies are making people leave, they assume it is the fault of the front line supervisors
Agreed. They want a younger and more "diverse" workforce. They need good experieced people to leave to accomplish these diversity goals and also make big bonuses for their short term cost reduction.
They do not value experience and knowledge as much as numbers they like. They are ignoring that after a short while it all breaks down due to incompetence. They do not care though, by that time they will have made millions.
