I am a senior Manager in HPE
As an employee of one of your customers, felicitous greeting, HPE PHB!
I have found the quality of our Indian colleagues is actually very high
How nice. Inside, I weep with anguish every time I have to have any dealing with your colleagues or your miserable organisation. In my private business I avoid giving my custom to tax dodging offshorers, at work I don't get the choice. Sadly.
fly these guys into the UK for up to two years to really get a feel for the systems and accounts they will be working on, before taking that experience back to their country
And then you'll be giving the "onshore" staff their P45s as a Secret Santa? But tell me, if you've offshored these roles to a range of cheap and unhygenic locations, why have our costs gone UP and performance DOWN? Your snake oil salesmen crooned to my directors that HP would be able to do thing better and more cheaply, and surely they weren't lying bastards?
This helps the role transition enormously
Bwahahahaahahahaha! You believe that utter SH1T? Anybody with any contact with the offshore ITO/BPO sector knows that you have appalling staff turnover. You're not "transferring skills", you're just exporting jobs to line your own corporate pockets.
Cue the Reg commentard's howls of disbelief..!!
You could say that, certainly.
