Cost Cutting

After announcing its best ever financial results, it seems incongruous that many parts of Fujitsu Services are launching cost-cutting initiatives that would be more in keeping if we were on the verge of bankruptcy.
Some of them are bizarre and irritating (like avoiding having paper in printers) but others, such as restrictions on training, could have more serious consequences for the long-term future of the company and its employees. If the cost-cutting is genuinely causing you problems, make sure you raise them – those with a bean-counting mentality will keep cutting until people complain.
You’ll be relieved to hear that our company directors financial position is still secure. The TUC’s WorkSmart web site (which picks up information from company accounts) reports that last year:
* Two directors shared remuneration of over £5.8m – equivalent to £475 for every employee
* The highest paid director getting £1.87m in salary alone (including accrued pension and lump sum, if applicable)
