Comet cuts 800 jobs
19 November 2012
Comet will close 41 stores by the end of November unless a buyer can be found, with 800 jobs under threat.
The high street electrical chain appointed administrators Deloitte earlier this month, announcing 330 job losses at the firm’s headquarters and among administrative staff. In total, 6,611 jobs are at risk.
Closing down sales have begun in 27 stores and will commence in 14 more stores next week. Rival company Dixons said they are offering Christmas jobs to hundreds of Comet staff who face redundancy.
Deloitte said in a statement: “While the administrators will look to redeploy staff from any stores which do face closure to other stores nearby, there will inevitably be redundancies.
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.
