The people with whom I work have expressed greater anxiety since the announcement on Tuesday than earlier. The lack of firm commitment by the senior management to fully cancel this outsourcing plan has everyone assuming that this is just another delay. Morale has worsened since the announcement, so it seems to have had the opposite effect from what they intended. Everyone thinks it was just a postponement of the inevitable.
I don't know what to believe. All I know for sure is that Unum is not a fun place to work. For a company who makes us do annual heath screening, etc., it is strange that they create working conditions which create stress, depression and anger in their employees.
It would be great if someone at a high enough level actually had a clue about what is going on with their employees, but they gave us caring for us many years ago.
