Case and others have always been quiet about this painful subject. I keep the 2001 annual report on my shelf and Pat Ryan wrote eloquently about the loss of the people, not colleagues, on that day. But Case has been most circumspect on this issue, and the long standing joke about a moment of silence while eating a Krispy Kreme donut has some truth into it. There remains a glass monument to the Towers at 199 Water Street and a plaque with all 176 names on it - one spelled wrong as I remember. I have also long been angry that the moment of silence at 10:29 is the wrong time, 9:59 is when the South Tower collapsed. It is a shame indeed.
Gee, ever visit Omaha Beach or the Punchbowl Cemetary? Try the Arizona someday. I am moved emotionally when I visit these places and do not know, personally, one individual therein myself. To say that Case is that in-human and non-caring is amazing indeed. I guess McKinsey does not teach emotive values at all. Only numbers. Hey, all time high.
Aon did nothing to remember the 11th. Jeff Greenberg gave an interview to cover how that day impacted Marsh. Case has no heart at all, and Aon only employs carbon units, not people.
damn tab key, IBM is interested in manufacturing CHIPS in India too, hey, cheaperfasterbetter.
He does not need to give a formal speech, but there are 176 reasons why he should do a bit more than a monent of silence at the wrong time. BTW I survived the towers so my viewpoint is biased.
You are right in one respect that next year and thereafter I am going 9-11 light, it is too hard on me to drag myself through it all. I was another Aon employee who marched 100 plus flights down that day but when it comes to this day, I do wish Chicago, or London now, would do it some service. I am glad he is still employed at Aon. You have my warm wishes for a good life. I shall now poke my head in here once in a while,
Don't you recognize that it is all as you say, ONLY SHAREHOLDER VALUE counts for any American business, nothing else matters. Not employee morale, not have talented workforce, not having good customers. Saw a rep from AstraZeneca in a medical office today and commented that THANK GOD they no longer use IBM. SHE AGREED. BUT WHAT THE HELL, ONLY SHAREHOLDER VALUE matters and since it is $190, who the hell cares otherwise. GO GINNY, DECIMATE the American ranks and #$%$ off American customers. AstraZeneca, Texas, AmGen, Service Master, Hilton Hotels. All told IBM to take a flying leap off a bridge.
BIRTH DEATH model, used to guestimate jobs created by new business which the department guesses at but cannot prove exist. Generally inflates until the numbers are quietly revised downward 1 or 2 months later. 90 million Americans NOT in the labor force. Growth in economy, even if 2 percent, is pathetic. Obamacare is wiping jobs and hours off the map. So, this is a good thing?????
Yeah, steady clients just like AstraZeneca, State of Texas, Australia - all of it, Service Master, Hilton Hotels.
You win an award for the shortest message board post in recent memory, at least it addresses issues rather than the occasional "test" message that shows up. And spelled correctly too.
Betcha CSC would have done a much better job with their India talent than CGI is apparently doing with their talent on the Obamacare initiative. Of course, CSC has that wonderful track record with the IRS to fall back on too, another success story? Oh, and my goodness those private sector contracts are just flooding in, aren't they??? Government shutdown? Impact on CSC?
I remembered that in 2010 Verizon announced it was building a borderless network for Aon, presume wireless of course and offices were being removed in many locations. So, how goes that? Have heard nothing.
Yeah, SPAM - guess the board is getting popular now. We have had several angry fights but the spam part has been very sparse indeed.
