GM delays return-to-office after employee uproar: ‘General Motors is doomed’

September 27, 2022 4:24pm 
 

General Motors pushed back the start of a return-to-office plan after facing fierce resistance from employees over its handling of the rollout.

The Detroit-based auto giant rankled corporate employees by announcing in a memo last Friday afternoon that they would be required to work onsite at least three days per week beginning later this year.

But GM executives reversed course in an update to staffers on Tuesday – saying the plan won’t be implemented until the first quarter of next year at the earliest. The company also apologized for the manner in which employees learned of the change.

“We acknowledge that the timing of the message, late on a Friday afternoon, was unfortunate. It was also unintentional,” GM CEO Mary Barra and other executives said in a memo to employees obtained by The Post.

GM executives will not dictate which days of the week employees work on-site, the memo added. The company will gather feedback from employees and provide additional details about the plan.

They can't build cars at home?

That, my friends, is most likely a flat out lie.

Not sure what was to be expected when everyone was falling all over themselves to allow people to stay home and allowing them to dictate mask and vaccination compliance.  

 

I see it in our offices and with my clients.

 

One office I sit in, no issues, no masks, nada.  

 

The other, total drama, to the point I was there yesterday and two young woman sitting in a cube working on a project...masked!

Right now employees have lots of leverage with the way the job market has been. But the market is showing signs of slowing down and layoffs are on the horizon, so more candidates will be competing for fewer jobs.  Companies will regain some leverage.

Seriously man, you spend the better part of 3 years scaring the living daylights out of everyone and then expect everyone to want to go back. Spreading fear has consequences.

Yep.  My daughter, after 4 days back at school got covid.  Just a bad head cold really, I advocated keeping mouths shut and continuing on as if nothing happened, but the wife was adamant on 'doing the right thing'.

 

In any event, there wasn't even any kind of remote option to help her keep up despite the positive test.

 

I guess this is good news overall...start treating it like the flu it is
