In retrospect

The world completely changed four years ago when the pandemic hit. Hard to believe it's been four years already since that happened. I work at one of those corporations that are in the list of “BC’s Top 100 Employers.” Working for this type of corporation has been a mixed blessing. So many of us got laid off at the Company (myself included). After over a year, I got recalled back into work. I appreciate my job from the bottom of my heart and fortunate that I didn't completely lose it during Covid. And yet not everyone was as lucky as me. The Managers used Covid as an excuse to get rid of people that they couldn't even fire since they got very selective about offering shifts once the storm blew over. There were existing staff that were ready and able to work, yet they hired people from outside the Company to take shifts. Some of those employees did not deserve to be let go so subtly, but others did. The ones that actually didn’t a good job probably had it coming. Oh well, sucks to be them. Nothing to do about it. I’m just glad I’m not their situation whatsoever.

That's how it should be- purposely lazy/incompetent people should not be given a pass for their actions. Nor kept around because of any sort of identity, but based on value they bring to the company.
You've obviously worked hard and smart enough to be kept,and deserve to be kept on board.

Former business owner with 40 employees. Would never start a biz in this recent climate with most people feeling entitled to a job just because of whatever reason...not what value they bring to the company

Agreed 100%. I too happen to work at one of those companies so I’m in the same boat as you. There were some good people that didn’t deserve to get let go from the organization that I work at but then after a while I processed it, I realized “Wow! Those were some really shitty people!” I’m glad they’re gone. Oh well, good riddance. Who needs them.
