Eversheds launches fresh redundancy talks
Every cloud has a silver lining... right?
“Whilst regrettable, it is important to put the proposed redundancies in context. We will continue to employ 1,300 lawyers in the UK alone. We are also continuing to recruit in areas that are performing strongly, such as pensions, projects, anti-trust and restructuring."
Yes, I'm sure that puts redundancy in context for those affected. I'm struggling to see the justification for redundancies when the company is very obviously recruiting, and apparently recruiting in the same areas of those being made redundant, just in other offices. I also understand the Chief Executive sent an email to everybody saying it was regrettable there were going to be redundancies, but don't worry, we're recruiting in other areas! I'm sure those affected enjoyed reading that one. What an appalling lack of judgement and terrible display of shoddy management.
