Someone needs to review the structures and put a stop to spending and think about people, moral, and the effects on the busiiness.
I work for a north west ALMO with some 23000 properties, not asmall almo . I have worked there for over 20 years and believe that the 2 yr freeze can only benefit both the company and the country. However, I take exception that if I am prepared to have a freeze on pay why are the company wasting money on unnecessary recruitment. One group manager was promoted and a permanant manager replaced. Another group manager moved on a temporary secondment and he was replaced by a PERMANANT group manager. There are also discussions to recruit ANOTHER group manager which will be ringfenced, there is already a manager in place to manage the departments this position is supposed to cover. Group Manages salaries are currently in excess of £43000 pa!!!! So basically our pay freeze will be paying for another salary which is not required in the business!!!!
On top of this we are aware there is a freeze on recruitment, this kind of waste needs to be stopped particlarly when people are worried about their jobs and the effect on lifestyle, familes etc.
