Time and Attendance and Personnel Management Systems are Vital For Companies Undergoing Major Structural Changes
Firms that undergo major changes, typically involving large-scale redundancies, will benefit from having a comprehensive time and attendance and personnel management system installed, as it typically streamlines work for their respective HR departments.
The latest company to find itself in such an unfortunate situation is none other than Big Six Energy Supplier British Gas, who has recently revealed that it will make 500 staff redundant as it shuts its loft and cavity wall insulation business.
The 500 job losses would be at various locations around the country but about 100 of them would be in Leeds, the company said. The affected staff had been working on installing home insulation in order to hit Government energy efficiency targets.
Mark Hodges, chief executive of UK energy supply & services for British Gas, said: “We are focused on improving the efficiency and effectiveness of our organisation to meet the changing needs of our customers. British Gas is well positioned to grow, but we must ensure that our costs allow us to be competitive for our customers.
”I recognise that this will be difficult news for the employees who may be affected. However I believe today’s announcement is in the best long-term interests of the business. Our priority is to support all those potentially impacted, and to ensure a fair and transparent consultation process” he concluded.
