Whitbread to create 10,000 jobs in next three years
28 February 2012
The UK’s largest hotel and restaurant group has announced that it will create thousands of jobs after positive sales growth.
Whitbread, which owns brands including Premier Inn and Costa, has announced plans to create 10,000 jobs in the next three years. This is in addition to the 2,500 jobs that were created last year.
These jobs come as Whitbread has revealed that its total sales for the 50 weeks to 16 February were up by 11%. The Costa brand alone has seen its total sales increase by 25%, while Premier Inn has outperformed the rest of the hotel industry.
Andy Harrison, Chief Executive, Whitbread, says: "Whitbread has delivered good total sales growth of 11% for the year in difficult economic conditions, as we continue to invest in our strong brands. We expect to report in April another full year of double digit earnings growth, in line with expectations.”
Borer's FUSION Flexitime System can cut overheads and reduce management time
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 very labour intensive 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.
