To forcefully subsume something into a larger system or whole, with blatant disregard for the individuality of the thing to be subsumed. Inspired by the Borg, a fictional civilization of cyborgs in the Star Trek universe who, although composed of billions of individual bodies and machines, share a single conciousness. The Borg assimilate other species and cultures, adapting their biological and technological distinctiveness to service the Borg, with the declaration that "resistance is futile."
When Gretchen read the memo from headquarters instructing all branch managers to begin using the new timekeeping system at the beginning of the new fiscal year, she knew her team would really resent another attempt to borgify operations.
