A lot of people received their layoff notices as of Nov 1st and days after. For the rest of the Colgate population not affected, please refrain from boasting or giving the list of names during your group meeting while laughing. It's not a joke. Stop hiding in your cubicals laughing they got rid of various people. Or walking pass these folks laughing. Careful, you still have 2 years of GGEP left and you may indeed be on the layoff list.
If you see someone who has been let go, please treat them with some dignity and respect. It breaks my heart to listen to the laughter and snickering. Grow up. The same people you are laughing at may be the very ones you ask to hire you at another company in the future.
The behaviors of so many is disturbing. No one's job is safe.
