近期英国工程咨询公司裁员一览

Yan 于 2009年1月23日更新:

今天对外宣布,在英国境内再次裁员260人。加上上周宣布的在中东裁员的210人,我公司已经裁员近500人。 一个在Cardiff 办公室工作的朋友也不幸中招,正积极争取转往Atkins内部其他办公室工作。前景未知。她可是当年帝国理工土木工程系的传奇人物之一,获奖无数!名字刻在Skempton building 201 外面的Award board上面的。。。 世事难料阿

Around 260 Design Solutions’ staff will be in consultation regarding our proposals. This includes individual colleagues across the business and those in the following teams:-

· All Design Solutions’ staff based in Birmingham, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Newcastle, Sheffield and Stockton.

· All Design Solutions’ staff in the M&E team and the P&S CAD team based in Leeds.

· All Design Solutions’ staff in the M&E team based in Oxford.

· All Design Solutions’ staff in the Graphics team based in London.

==========================================================

本来认为裁员只是银行的事情。没想到credit crunch也已经开始bite我们engineering consultancy。
自去年年底以来,工程咨询公司开始了一轮腥风血雨的裁员行动。

Arup: 400 job cuts across Europe before end of April 2009
WSP: sacked 500 staff by the end of December 2008
Whitbybird: 70% of work force in some offices
Buro Happold: 80% of staff in some offices
Halcrow: at least 100 staff have left the group
Walsh group: 1 in 3 employees lost their jobs
White Young Green: Even CEO was forced to leave the trouble company
: unknown number of redundancies

现在看来,似乎只有我们Atkins和妮妮的Mott MacDonald 没有宣布裁员。
我们两家公司在英国工程咨询公司之中,营业额和员工数排名第一和第二。
而就我的所在Oil & Gas部门而言,基本上还是业务量充足连续的。我对工作的前景持谨慎的乐观。

But no one knows who will be the next victim of this bloody
用我老板Les哥的话说,It will be foolish to promise anybody anything before we see the bottom of the economic downturn.
好吧,Let’s hope the best, prepare for the worst.

如果公司不裁员,那以下一个或几个减少开支的行动看来是不可避免了:
1。避免不必要的旅行,培训,会议等开支。
2。基本停止通过中介的对外招聘,减少毕业生招聘数量。
3。一周4天工作日。
4。不涨薪,甚至降薪。
5。取消所有奖金。
