The reason many companies are not clearly communicating their future plans is because they don’t have their employees’ best interests in mind. They’re scheming behind close doors coming up with ways to make bigger profits and if layoffs are in the cards to accomplish this, then so be it. If they were to be honest about these things they may find themselves dealing with a mass exodus. They would rather blindside folks so they get to choose who stays and who goes. Corporate America will never be transparent with its workers because they are not a priority to them.
