In my experience I'm sorry to say profit margins are always more important than staff.

Hmmm we're at a crossroads. Does anybody else have any opinions on this?

I think the profit will always come first.

I know somebody who runs a prominent flower delivery company and to say that they have an ethical outlook is an understatement. I think to them the workers are just as important as the company doing well.

Though I guess if a company doesn't do well it would have no workers so yes, the profit has to come first but is that really a bad thing?

Lets face it a young employee with two children and a large mortgage and no savings against an older employee with a paid off mortgage, Isa's and all children left home and working?  Hmmm........  difficult one that.

During the redundancy process I was a employee representative.  They decided who was going long before the criteria and consultations process.  All the rubbish staff went regardless of age.

If someone makes you money and gives your customers satisfaction you keep them ahead of the Facebook sick note skivers!
