Thread regarding CSC layoffs

Phase 4 transformation is a complete and utter mess!!

Last week the P&PM & Architecture community were told that we were in selection pools and that the numbers of people to be put at risk were 50%! Staff were given 2 days to register interest in taking VR. So as you can imagine the morale in the offices is at an all time low. This week people have been told they were safe, then to be told they were not. People have been invited onto at risk calls only for the calls to be cancelled at the last minute. Emails have been sent out to tell the staff that they need to resend their VR interest to another mailbox!! You simply cannot make this up!! Whoever is driving this has not got a clue and are making ridiculous mistakes to the point it's now becoming comical!! This is creating chaos in the workplace where people don't know what the hell is going on!! If this is what it's going to be like in the new company then god help us the people who will be left.....

In response to above post: VR = voluntary redundancy. The employee elects to be made redundant. As opposed to IR, involuntry redundancy

The scoring sheet used to identify which employers are to be made redundant has been significantly changed this round. 30% of the scoring is a subjective mark given by senior managers in the business against a vague criticality to the business category, with no transparency to the individuals being scored. Surely this is against the Fair and Objective scoring criteria that should be used in these situations.

We have had the Mandatory Business Update calls in my location. Call at 15:00 cancelled then another at 15:30 cancelled for me personally, other colleagues nearby were not so lucky. I listened to the 15:30 call anyway and felt embarrassed for the person holding it as it was extremely poor. Voluntary redundancy (VR), gardening leave with compulsory redundancy or just plain old redundancy were the options. "Your consultation period will start shortly and will last 30 days" said the voice at the other end of your line. Seems like not much thought has been put into this round of lay offs as there are quite a few vacancies within the company that are still being recruited for. Morale extremely low and is making some people ill due to the uncertainty. Shocking way to treat people in an attempt to raise the share price pre-merger.

They Don't care . If they offer you a departure package , take it... go ... find something else with a sense of morality and consideration for you in your work day and live a happier life . .... They DONT Care about anything about you, only the bottom line. Chins UP, be proud and never let them take from you your integrity . They talk a Good Ethics Talk, but they walk a different story . Walk your story with self respect.

Posters I understand the majority of your readers are from the company. But some of us are new and not familiar with the various acronyms... Please spell out at least once.
