Why employees are now called Human "Resources"
"They wouldn't be called human RESOURCES if they weren't meant to be strip-mined"
The HR head at DXC Technology, who according to a ex-senior staffer once cut up former CEO Mike Lawrie's steak during a business dinner, is leaving the business.

I would disagree about the sustaining part. They've lost so much business over the last two years that there's still plenty of room for more slashing and burning.
"Our employees are key to achieving our goals and aspirations"
You know, I'm sure I heard that before somewhere... Maybe when Mikey and Jo were talking about the CLEAR values during the initial induction and yearly refreshers. Nah; couldn't have been them, could it? That would mean they were saying thing they didn't actually believe in.
But to the point here, show me a CEO who doesn't, with a straight face, say exactly this.
I'm surprised he is even continuing with "digital transformation" as a phrase. Why not go back in time and talk about reengineering the company? I mean, "Reengineering the Corporation" started with (then) CSC. Why not dust off that concept and try to sell it again?
The damage is done already, it will be difficult to make whatever good employees are left like the company again without a hefty compensation and company reconstruction, way too many assholes are still working there, assholes are the only kind that survived that harsh work environment.

Think of the planet:
A 25% energy reduction apparently.
That's either about switching off employee workstations because they have left or its talking about how nobody has any energy or enthusiasm to make any effort any more.
