If anyone needs evidence that FedEx upper management doesn't "get it", take a look at the new FedEx Town hall, available on the corporate website. This is just another "canned" promotional piece, with a bunch of stiff, unhappy-looking, ethnically-diverse employees sitting at attention while management tells them how much "FedEx Cares", and how appreciated their efforts are. SOS, re-packaged and re-formulated in a vain attempt to have us buy-off on this garbage. About the only thing that's different is that the "suits" are wearing sports jackets, probably in an attempt to "relate" to us lowly hourlies. In fact, most of the audience are dressed better than the hosts. "Let's see, do we have enough Asians, or should we add another", and "make sure that the African-Americans have plenty of camera time". Effing fake...every step of the way. This whole show is completely staged and rehearsed. There is nothing spontaneous about it, and hosts Goober and Gomer begin the show with a disclaimer that the actual questions employees had, weren't going to be answered verbatim. What does that tell you? If they really wanted to get the pulse of the workforce, the meeting would be live, and completely open to any questions. Oh, but no, we couldn't do that, could we? Someone in the crowd might ask something truly embarassing to the company. OMG!!! If that were to occur, we'd see some of the genuine anger and frustration real employees feel about this company, and not a fake in-house production like "Town hall" that is nothing but a pro-FedEx infommercial. As phony as a three dollar bill and as honest as a politician. Right up Fred's alley. Sorry, but it's not going to work. Keep trying to sell us the same old crap, OK?
