Thread regarding West Corp. layoffs

Layoffs

What's going on with layoffs? Are we expecting any more this week?

I have to admit that last week crept up on me unexpectedly, and considering that I am always stressing about layoffs that's really saying something.

Can we expect more surprises like that any time soon?

You can rearrange the chairs on the deck of the Titanic but it doesn't change the outcome of the end." There won't be a sequel movie for West. West new leadership has lost the ship and along with it, the morale of most of the staff employees. I can't agree more with seasoned employees just giving up in frustration. Soo many great people are leaving on their own, staff retention is starting to become an issue again. In a growing economy West cannot afford the rise of others offering jobs and thus hope to keep people on board.

I have seen over the last 3 months people who used to really care just flat give up. People who are the Golden Handcuffed just have flat stop caring. People who know their stuff, people willing to stay because they feel the ownership and pride in what they have accomplished. When you have lost these people, you have lost your workforce and no additional VPs can fix this - even from remote location.

I think honestly we have a reached the point of no return anything from here on is too little too late. I’m glad to be one who’s moving on to a new employer. Others need to do the same because you might not be selected to stay once new buyers take over.

It's all about "winning behaviors" and "performance for layoffs" cough I mean "pay for performance".

I would like to say that the very leadership that caused the issues with West by making bad decisions and not integrating themselves in the everyday operations have been paid millions to leave. Now, they have hired new leadership that not only do not have adequate knowledge of the industry but do not have any integrity. They have let go or lost by “forced” attrition the employees that were experienced, talented and top performers. West will never be able to gain back the process and product knowledge of these employees. Plus, the relationships that have been built internally and externally with customers will never be the same. Wake up. Please someone just stand up and use common sense. The ship is sinking and it is hard to watch. I think many of the employees and management have basically given up. Many are waiting to see what happens and not doing a thing to help or innovate.
