Thread regarding Change Healthcare layoffs

Change Healthcare RIFs - Why management minimally impacted?

Is it just me or does it seem like CHC keeps a thick layer of management (directors, managers, supervisors, team leads) , in relation to the number of workers that actually do billable work? It doesn't see efficient if they truly want to reduce costs.

Change Healthcare is top heavy. Lots of folks that like to talk and plan the next generation of systems but little execution because there are few folks who actually do work and when they do they are hand tied by unrealistic management asks

Echo most of you. Too many directors and (may be, VPs too). No need of directors since they are just extra layer- in my opinion. Directors need to go and managers need to remain.

Same here. I was laid off three weeks ago, but the management above me was retained, although I have never heard of them doing any actual work. CHC has slowly been digesting acquired staff from the RelayHealth merger and executing RIFs in stages so as not to scare off investors as they approach the IPO. Look for more RIFs through the summer until only a skeleton crew remain from original RH products, which will eventually be sunset.

I can confirm that the latest post from @YtYMtwj-8lbs is valid. Announcement was made a few days ago.

Well, well. Heard thru the grapevine that a big fish on the provider sales management side was RIF’d today.

Most of the new hires have been in management too, it's pretty wild.

If they would being back the manager surveys or do 360 reviews they would see just how unproductive and unprofessional some of the leadership staff really are. People get promoted to leadership roles just because they’ve occupied a desk for the longest even though they don’t have the education, experience , or even mental maturity to be a leader. Creates a miserable working environment.

Yep. My department is very small and we really do not require much direction as we are all seasoned employees but we have a manager, supervisor, and a team lead. Unfortunately the supervisor just chats loudly all day so ends up being more of a disruption than anything. Still not sure why we need so much leadership when very little direction is given.
