Royal Mail create 1000 jobs in the UK
31 October 2012
Royal Mail is creating 1,000 UK jobs over the next four years in its parcels business.
The postal service has unveiled a £75million investment programme for its parcels business, which will see a new parcel processing centre opening in Chorley in 2013.
Royal Mail will open two new depots in Cornwall and Hampshire. Nine existing depots will be expanded or moved to larger sites over the next four years.
The company has cut around 65,000 jobs since 2002 as part of modernisation plans.
Dave Ward, Deputy General Secretary, Communication Workers Union (CWU), adds: "In truth, this project has already been several months in the making and CWU is involved in talks about how and where these jobs will be created, including the possibility of people transferring from other parts of the group where jobs are being lost.
"These jobs will go some way to easing the impact of jobs lost elsewhere in the company as huge changes are brought in to address the altering profile of mail. Working with the CWU, Royal Mail - unlike many private mail companies - has created good quality, and secure jobs with decent pay, terms and conditions."
Borer's FUSION Time Recording System
With a large number of employees, using Borer's FUSION Time Recording System will help reduce management involvement and the administrative time and effort required to manage a time management scheme.
It is 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. Using an online system helps alleviate the unneccessary paperwork.
