How can they expect client and staff loyalty when they are prepared to walk over so many people without even a glance back?

Reply Link Rural bliss 13 December 2010 at 15:35 @ William (aka Scrooge) How intensely glad I am that I don’t live in your mean little world, where margins are more important than people. A classic example of a man who knows the price of everything and the value of nothing. The concept of law as a profession, with the responsibilities that increasingly archaic term implies, are completely lost on such as you, and the profession as a whole is the worse for it. Happy Christmas (and remember you can charge double on Christmas Day). Reply Link the old man of the sea 13 December 2010 at 16:00 I still don’t get it. Why pay a business £300+ per hour for “cutting edge” legal advice on HR issues when they don’t bother to manage their own HR? It is sad when you look at the way people are treated as a cost rather than valued for what they add to the business. HR is a great example of something which – well done – can add value to an organisation but in the world of commodotised lawyering is just an expense to be more cheaply handled in a Bangalore call centre. 100 more souls lost from the monolith. Still it might put £100 on PEP so it MUST be worth it. Reply Link Anonymous 13 December 2010 at 16:23 Whatever happened to the “great place to work” ?

Reply Link Deidre Dave 14 December 2010 at 10:30 Why the surprise? The clue is in the name. Eversheds. Because they are forever shedding staff. Reply Link Grinch 17 December 2010 at 02:46 Communication is key with things like HR and Admin. How is that going to work with trying to track down someone in India to get a quick answer ? We’ve all come across those terrible outsourcing of call centres. It is a disaster in the making. They might save a few pounds but the cost in terms of time, efficiency and people will be far more. Short term money grabbing with no conscience. Merry Xmas to you too. Reply Link Anonymous 20 December 2010 at 14:54 The ignorance demonstrated in these threads is staggering. I struggle to understand how those making the comments in this and other threads make a living out of delivering legal & commercial advice Reply Link Rahmen 21 December 2010 at 23:30 End of the day business is business if they have to get rid of people to cut costs then so be it. But please don’t insult by calling it an innovation cause there is nothing innovative about outsourcing, your just getting rid of a few expensive people and employing a few cheap ones. (Management at Eversheds believe outsourcing to a box in Bangalore is innovative). I really really really hope that this does not work out for Eversheds and their brand name goes down the toilet, more than it has already.

People are people the rest is geography. Reply Link Name Email Cancel reply Threaded commenting powered by interconnect/it code.
