Anthem Associates are Hoarding Vacation hours as they are so afraid they will be RIF or Laid Off in the Next Round.
Basically these Associates are working from Home and taking Vacations while working Remotely or Babysitting the Kids Children (Grandchildren); traveling with their Children and bring their laptops to "Work at Whereever They Are" and playing Nannies for their Grandchildren. All this is to Preserve their Banked PTO, so when they get Laid Off at some point the Cash Payoff they get, is a larger pot of Cash.
Sad that this company is terrifying the Associates it is forcing them to resort to these tactics to preserve Cash for survival.
Maybe these Associates should be working more, but many have nothing to do. They are sitting around at home or meeting with Legato teams doing Knowledge Transfer of everything they know about the Systems they support. This is how Anthem is forcing training of the Legato (Inda based) Associates, from existing Anthem Associates. The Plan is they will be RIF or Laid Off after sufficient knowledge has been transferred. Hear that Loud S---ing Noise, that is the Sound of this company s---ing all the knowledge out of people and sending it half-way around the world to the waiting Legato Associates.
Many of the Legato Associates are just s---ing up all this Anthem sourced knowledge being transferred and also signing up and taking free Technology Classes (in-house) so that they can leave Legato in a shot period of time and move up at their Next position job at another Employer in India. Anthem is training all of South India so the people can get a even better job at their Next Employer. Fully trained on Anthem Systems in Claims, Member, Billing, Provider, Pricing etc. Plus the latest trading in AGILE, Cloud, AWS, AI and ML, etc.
How will this end? You get what you pay for and what you asked for. Let's see in a couple of years if Anthem will be able to get anybody to work for them after they have Laid Off all their formerly Loyal Associates, and or screwed over their Replacements offshore.
