With the new coalition government nearing two weeks in office there are still mixed feelings about how the change in the political world will affect those in the economic world. Despite Germany announcing today that it would fund a rescue package to help sustain the Euro, the FTSE 100 share index fell to it’s lowest since last November.
Although all parties warned consistently throughout the election campaign off tough cuts being in the pipeline and much media attention being given to the £6 billion spending cuts to be announced in an emergency budget in 6 weeks time, it is still unknown how this will actually affect the shop floor.
MCE often highlighted last year that recession hit budgets did not mean that HR and Health & Wellbeing programmes were out of the window. Instead, there are still many reasons why HR is crucial at the heart of any business looking to succeed. With more cuts inevitable, companies have to focus still on producing the same results with smaller staff bases while at the same time retaining those employees who are key to making the business work.
This is where MCE have time and time again stood in to help. Rather than employees continually looking over their shoulders, the MCE Wellbeing Programme successfully helps to refocus staff so that they can continue to work efficiently and dynamically. Despite the whole of Europe moving into a period of much uncertainty, the one thing that companies can rely on is that our care teams will help to keep your employees on board.
