On May 20, 2016, BayCare announced a merger with the Human Resources department of the California Department of Health Services.
This news caused many BayCare employees to take to social media to express their outrage at the news, with some of them even calling for the merger to be called off.
On May 21, BayCo, the parent company of Baycare, issued a statement, stating that the merger will not impact the health and human resources programs of BayCo.
However, the merger does create a new entity called BayCare Human Resources and will be the sole legal representative of the employees, said the statement.
The HR department at the state of California is currently in the process of developing the new HR department, said BayCo spokesperson, Marjorie Sohn.
The HR department will be tasked with implementing and enforcing the new laws and regulations that will be created by the merger.
BayCare employees, however, have expressed their concerns about the merger and how it will affect their personal lives.
For many of them, the news was a shock and a source of stress.
In an open letter, the BayCo employees wrote, “Our hearts go out to all of you who are experiencing anxiety, sadness, and confusion over this announcement.
The merger will be a huge change in the BayCare HR department and we are concerned about what that change may mean for you.”
Some employees said that the HR department is not accountable to the employees.
“The HR is in the business of creating policies, and not of making policy,” one employee told The Associated Press.
“It’s really hard to explain what that means.”
BayCare said in a statement that it was “grateful” for the outpouring of support from BayCo customers, employees, and the community.
BayCare will continue to have a strong partnership with the HR departments at all of our health care providers in California, including BayCare Care, and we look forward to working with the new California HR department,” said BayCare CEO, Susan Shireman.
BayCo employees also shared a video on Facebook that shows employees and community members sharing stories of anxiety and depression.
In the video, the employees tell their stories and share their thoughts on the merger, saying that BayCo has been the life of the party and is a great family.
