31 January 2012
British Sky Broadcasting Group has announced that it will create over one thousand jobs due to continued growth with revenue up 6% to £3.4 billion.
British Sky Broadcasting Group (BSkyB) will create 1,300 jobs across the UK and Ireland over the next two years including a new service centre in Dublin, according to its latest six-month report ending 31 December 2011.
The report showed that the firm recorded its highest ever first-half adjusted operating profit of £601million – up by 16% having added 100,000 new households to reach 10.471 million customers.
In additional to the new jobs, BSkyB plan to launch a new internet based pay TV service aimed at new customers as well as free access to 10,000 WiFi hotspots to Sky Broadband Unlimited Customers.
Jeremy Darroch, Chief Executive, BSkyB, says: “We’ve delivered another strong result, with our highest ever first-half operating profit and 20% growth in earnings per share. On the back of this, we’re increasing the dividend again and have started our share buyback programme to increase returns for our shareholders.”
Borer's FUSION Time Recording System
With a high number of employees on payroll, using Borer's FUSION Time Recording System will help reduce management involvement and the administrative effort required to manage a time management scheme.
It is labour demanding to manage and maintain a centrally administered or paper based flexitime system. Invariably, queries arise in relation to flexi balances and the process can become a very complicated one, particularly for the HR department.
Implementing an automated time and attendance system makes things very easy for both employees and their managers alike.
