Pret A Manger plan 500 new jobs in UK
22 April 2013
Pret A Manger has announced plans to create around 500 new jobs in the UK this year after reporting a profit rise of 17%.
The sandwich and coffee chain aims to increase its staff by 1,000 worldwide after seeing £61.1m in profits in 2012 with total sales also up 17% to £443m.
Chief Executive Clive Schlee also addressed criticisms about the firm not hiring enough UK citizens, revealing they now have 15% more British staff than last year.
The company operates out of 323 stores, mostly in the UK but also in Hong Kong, the US and France.
Speaking about the amount of UK staff, Schlee told the Today programme on Radio 4: “It depends on what market you’re taking about. Outside London Pret is predominantly British and inside London it’s a much more cosmopolitan economy and our staff reflect the nature of the people in London.”
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.
