The way these layoffs were managed is a good lesson for those who remain. This place does not appreciate your loyalty, hard work, skills or dedication to your job. We are all just a number here. You should always keep this in mind while updating your resume and looking for better opportunities out there.

They’re denying that this was done via prerecorded message, but refusing to give more information.
They’re saying people are making up stories.
I survived the layoff but I won’t be here for long. I’m sorry to my former colleagues, you deserved so much better.
It makes me laugh to think Kemper disregarded the ramifications of their actions before the mass layoff. They're F'd!!
Training and Development as far as I know.
I have to agree that the mass layoffs that occurred yesterday were so poorly done without regard to the talent and dedication of the employees that were let go. Kemper is always looking for talented people in the claims department but overlooks what they already have. In my 20+years in the insurance claims industry, I have never seen such disregard for the dedication of the employees. This layoff could have been accomplished in a much more face-to-face fashion weighing out options if any for each individual. But wait that might be emotionally troubling for those in charge. Give me a break Kemper you should be ashamed. Management like this is why you are in the trouble you are in.
What depts were hit? Claims, sales, etc???
