I work at one of the big 5 Canadian banks in technology. My manager told me to come with him to a private room and he tells me I have a HR meeting tomorrow Thursday (payday) at 1pm.
I ask him what it is about and he says he doesn't know. I prodded further and asked "should I be concerned about my job?" And he said my job is not at risk here.
I find it very cryptic and of course very anxious. My last 3 years of performance reviews are of a solid quality.
Also to add, our teams are severely short on staff and just hired 15+ full timers over the last 3 months. Just yesterday our AVP gave a large townhall describing the big pipeline of work coming our way, celebrated our accomplishments and reiterating why we are such a good place to work at.
Any advice? Do I need to prepare financially for termination?
