Ministry of Defence to cut 25% of senior staff
20 August 2012
The Ministry of Defence (MoD) has announced plans to cut up to 25% of senior staff at their main head office.
Around 26 posts at senior level are set to go, saving the ministry an estimated £3.8million a year. Those set to be cut are equivalent of Commodore, Brigadier, Air Commodore or above.
The new senior structure is to focus on providing strategic direction, rather than day-to-day management of front line commands, which will be left to take care of managing their own budgets.
Defence Secretary Philip Hammond says : "For too long the MoD has been top heavy, with too many senior civilians and military. Not only does this new structure reduce senior staff posts by up to a quarter in the next two years, but it allows clear strategic priorities to be set for the armed forces."
More Flexibility in the workplace with Borer's FUSION T&A System.
Borer's Time and Attendance system is designed to offer employees more flexibility in the workplace. With more and more emphasis being placed on work life balance, organisations must define procedures to support employees.
One way to do this is by implementing flexitime by providing staff with flexible working hours to accommodate those working part-time, family priorities, covering absences and job sharing.
