My group resides in bank solutions and we were told very clearly that 5 days in the office is the expectation going forward. We were told in a threatening tone that badge statistics will be carefully scrutinized and anyone not coming in 5 days a week will receive only one warning before being terminated.

I read above that Patrick org requires the 5 days. He did this same cr-p at US Bank because he over reacts to everything. It’s all that speed.
100% true. Starting week of Oct 3rd, rto 5 days a week
JPL striking out with a maverick policy to boost metrics and compliance up the food chain? Wierd....
Can confirm some teams under Patrick law are required 5 days. I know people on one of the teams. I'm sure Frankie will come call me a liar though.
That must have been back when we still had IT employees. Not sure what they would do now that they have all been laid off.
Sensors under the seat? You give them too much credit! When I first RTO after 15 years of WFH, there was a docking station that was incompatible with my laptop, a wireless mouse with no batteries or dongle, and had to wait 4 hours for someone to (secretly) enter the employee Wifi password. Building needs a huge pair of mouse ears on the roof!
3 weeks after being told that BH is 5 days a week, we have been told - Employees 3 days, Managers 4 days and Contractors 5 days/week. Apparently not many new people are accepting offers and that is the reason for the change
1hvw+1iQAOfDR apparently hr needs to understand that leaders will adopt stricter policies so they do not have to deal with the numbers game and/or to look good to their upper mgt. I have empathy for people that work under the leader you mentioned.
Apparently the 'majority of the month including R&R and holidays' is too complicated to communicate. So they decided to go full time in the office instead.
What a clown show.
It just shows how poor communication is throughout the organization.
It's Patrick Law's org that's requiring it. They're not lying. People were told 5 days/ week or fired. They're requiring it because R&R doesn't reflect in the badge swipe report so they're hoping 5 days for everyone will be enough to boost the numbers and that the entire org will hit the 60% average required by Frank.
Keep living in delusion if you want.
OK....keep telling yourself that story.
No one is deceiving I know another team in Bank Solutions that has also been forced to this. Sounds like Frank needs to check on his goons as they are not doing his bidding as he'd like.
A corporate policy can not be changed by individual managers or business units. And yes, the Majority is the company policy on time in the office.
OMG - definitely not a manager and quite naive. BTW - what you are referring to - the written communication on where to work flexibility is NOT a policy. It's a general position and can and will be adopted and adapted, as desired and needed, by individual teams and BUs.
Then stop calling me after my 8hr shift when things break. Find someone else for installs after hours. Quit asking me to do more with less. Or better yet, I'll continue working my 10-12hr days and when I reach 40hrs/wk I'll shutdown my laptop and enjoy my 3-4 day weekends!
No individual manager or business can dictate different rules than the corporate policy of the majority or 3/5 days in the office.
You are clearly not a manager or you would know better OR you are in one of the few BUs that are held to a different standard (and, that does happen) and really just don't know what is happening in other BUs. Forget what FUEL says. Each BU can make their own requirement.
That 5 day rule is for contractors not employees. No change to company policy for associates, the MAJORITY, which is 3 of 5. Stop the purposeful attempt to deceive.
Let me guess you work under Keith?
All the best folks! Not just badge swipes, seat warming also counts, you never know if they have a sensor under your seat too.
