Honda to create 500 UK jobs
6 September 2012
The Japanese carmaker Honda has recruited an additional 500 employees in the company's biggest investment programme for ten years, raising the total number of car workers to 3,500.
Honda’s investment in its Swindon UK plant has reached £267million as plans to ramp up production come into force.
The injection of funds will support the new Civic and CR-V Honda models, as well as a new 1.6-litre diesel engine. Over 183,000 cars are expected to be produced this year, with output expected to be 250,000 within three years.
Cars and engines at the Swindon plant are built for export around Europe but around 40% of production is sold in the UK.
Dave Hodgetts, MD of Honda UK, says: "Sales in the UK are up about ten, so we are in a strong position. Europe is not quite so good, but is holding up.
"This investment programme underpins Honda's commitment to manufacturing in Britain and to our UK workforce. It reaffirms the Swindon plant's position as the cornerstone of Honda's European operations, as it has been for the past 25 years."
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.
